Transcript of TISSUES

Nervous system consists of two main types of cells, Neurons and Neuroglia. The neurons main purpose is to transmit nerve impulses that carry information around the body. Neuroglia have various functions to support nerve cells, but they do not transmit nerve impulses
There are three types of muscle tissue. They are skeletal, cardiac, and smooth. Muscle tissue provides posture, body support, movement, and heat production. The MAIN function of muscle tissue is MOVEMENT.
Epithelial tissue consists of tightly packed, flat cells that make up the inside or outside lining of body areas. Epithelial tissue does not have blood vessels. The functions of epithelial tissues include secretion, protection, cellular transport, and absorption. The primary function is to protect the tissues that lie beneath it. The four principle types of epithelial tissue are squamous, cuboidal, columnar, and Pseudostratified.
Connective Tissue

Connective tissue is the most abundant type of tissue throughout the human body. Its functions is to primarily support, anchor, and connect various parts of the body. The connective tissue has three types of structural elements, they are cells, fibres, and intercellular substance
Epithelial Tissue
The human body cannot function without the muscular system. I choose to defend the muscle system because every single thing that is thought of in our brain finds its expression in the muscular system. Examples would be the act of speaking, the act of writing, dancing, running, and swimming. Body muscles help a person to stand tall, walk, move, and bend. They help in breathing, blood circulation, and functioing of internal organs. The muscular system is made up of a variety of muscular tissues and organs, and each of these have a specific task in the functioning of the body.
