Transcript of Gavin, Nathan, DaiNijah
"Nervous tissue or nerve tissue is the main tissue component of the two parts of the nervous system; the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system, and the branching peripheral nerves of the peripheral nervous system, which regulates and controls bodily functions and activity".
These tissues line the cavities and surfaces of blood vessels and organs throughout the body. All glands are made up of epithelial cells. Functions of epithelial cells include secretion, selective absorption, protection, transport, and sensing.
"In humans, there are four basic types of tissue: epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous tissue. There may be var
ious sub-tissues within each of the primary tissues. Epithelial tissue covers the body surface and forms the lining for most internal cavities".
"Muscle tissue varies with function and location in the body. In mammals the three types are: skeletal
or striated muscle; smooth or non-striated muscle; and cardiac muscle, which is sometimes known as semi-striated. Smooth and cardiac muscle contracts involuntarily, without conscious intervention."
