structures observed for the following slides: Pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium of the trachea Single layer of cells of differing heights, some not reaching the apical surface, nuclei located at different levels give the appearance of a mulitlayerd (stratified) tissue. Mucous secreting goblet cells are common in this tissue. There are both ciliated and non-cilated types. Stratified squamous epithelium (non-keratinized) of the esophagus Distinguished by multiple layers of cells with...

Classification of Tissue

understanding of how the human body is able to function as a unit. The human body is composed of four basic types of tissues such as epithelium , connective , muscular , and nervous tissues. These tissues vary in their composition and their function. A basic understanding of the role of each tissue makes understanding the specific functions easier. Epithelium is lines and covers surfaces. Connective tissues to protect, support, and bind together. Muscular tissue produces movement and Nervous...

P2, Richard Greensmith, and Health & Social Care & Health Sciences. P2 Outline the structure of the main tissue of two body organs. Stomach The stomach has three layers of non-striated muscle in its wall and an inner lining of columnar epithelium with goblet cells. The tissue connecting the lining with the muscular coat is areolar tissue. Non striated muscle is a type of muscle tissue, which is also called involuntary, smooth or plain muscle. It still contains the protein filaments; they...

these organs. Epithelial tissues help in absorption of water & nutrient. Epithelial tissues help in elimination of waste product. There are different types of epithelial tissue, in different shapes for different things and areas: Squamous epithelium. Squamous cells are very thin and flat. Squamous cells nucleus tends to be horizontal flattened, elliptical because of the thin flattened form of the cell, it just forms a lump in the centre. . They form the lining of cavities such as the mouth...

Nervous tissue and muscular tissue are considered excitable tissues because they are very sensitive to outside stimuli. A simple epithelium consists of a single layer of cells with every cell touching the basement membrane. A stratified epithelium consists of 2 or more layers of cells with only the deepest layer of cells touching the basement membrane. The cells of an epithelium can be squamous (flat), columnar (tall and narrow), or cuboidal (round or cubed). Goblet cells are unicellular glands that...
