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...

Tissues In The Human Body

of tissue is the epithelium tissue which has the function of helping to protect the body. There are four main types of epithelium tissues; squamous epithelial cells, Cuboidal epithelial cells, columnar epithelial cells and ciliated columnar cells. The squamous epithelium protects the linings in the body such as blood vessels and air sacs in the lungs. The cuboidal epithelium protects things such as the kidneys and glands as they can secrete and absorb substances. Columnar epithelium can also secrete...

Four Basic Tissue Types and Their Function

epithelial tissue. First there is simple squamous epithelium tissue. This is a single layer of cells that is in the lining of blood vessels, the lining of the pulmonary alveoli, and the Bowman’s capsule in the kidneys. The function of this tissue is to separate blood from the fluid in tissues and to separate air from fluids in tissues and to filter substances from blood to form urine. The next type of epithelial tissue is stratified squamous epithelium. This is a tissue composed of two or more layers...

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...

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...
