called what?
What are the four basic types of body tissues?
Tendons and ligaments are composed primarily of what type of tissue?
Connective tissue fibers are produced by what type of cell?
The type of muscle tissue found in blood vessels is known as what?
Injured fibrous connective tissue and cartilage are slow to heal because …
Cardiac muscle is found where?
Write the name of the type of tissue next to its description.
Most abundant tissue by weight, bind structures, provide protection, fill spaces, stores fat, good blood
Rigid, provides support, lacks a direct blood supply so healing is very slow
Layers of cube-shaped cells- lines the mammary glands, sweat glands, and provides protection
Involuntary, comprises the walls of hollow internal organs ex: digestive tract
Single layer of thin flattened cells, lines the air sacs of the lungs
Many layers of cells, tissues are thick, cells near the surface are flattened the most, outer layer of the skin
Appear layered, but are not, have cilia, lines the passage way of the respiratory system
Top cells are elongated, lower cells are cuboidal, found in the urethra
Fibers in branching networks, attachments between the bones of the spinal column
Attached to bones, controlled by conscious effort
Forms thin membranes, binds skin to underlying tissue
Strong, can withstand pulling forces, binds body parts together, make-up tendons and ligaments
Only in the heart
Found in the brain and spinal cord, can sense changes in its surroundings and respond
Found throughout the body, covers body surfaces, always has a free surface, anchored to a basement
membrane, lacks blood vessels
Most rigid, supports body structures, attached to muscle
Consists of RBC, WBC¸ Platelets, and plasma, transports gases, and fights infections
Fat, lies beneath skin, cushions joints, insulates- stores energy
***Be able to identify the 3 types of muscle tissue and nervous tissue by looks.
Single layer of cube shaped cells, lines the thyroid gland and covers the ovaries
Thin fibers, makes up the framework of certain internal organs such as the liver and spleen
Specialized to change in response to increased tension- lines the bladder
Single layer of elongated cells, with the nuclei near the basement membrane, can be cilated or nonciliated, secretes digestive fluids, and absorbs nutrients from digested foods
