Tissue Types: Form and Function
Transcript of Tissue Types: Form and Function
Connective tissue form:
-Matrix of living and non-living substance
Connective tissue function:
-Connects and protects
-Extracellular matrix- bears weight, stretches
-Bone- provides structure
-Adipose- stores fat
-Blood- transports substances
Muscle tissue's form:
Muscle tissue's functions:
-Moves blood and nutrients
-Contractions of the heart
Epithelial tissue's form:
-Tightly packed in single or multiple layers
-Shape can be squamous, cuboidal, or columnar; simple or stratified
Epithelial tissue's functions:
-Absorption and secretion
-Filtration and excretion
Which is the Best?
I believe epithelial tissue is the "best" because it has the most functions. Epithelial tissue protects, absorbs, secretes, excretes, filters, and provides sensory perception for the human body. With out these actions taking place, we would not be able to survive. Also, epithelial tissue exists in many different shapes, allowing it to be useful in different places of the body.
Nervous tissue form:
-Made up of nerve cells, with a neuron and axon
Nervous tissue function:
-Generates nerve impulses
-Neuroglia protect neurons
The relationship between the form and function of the muscular system is that skeletal tissue enables the body to move, smooth tissue helps blood and nutients travel around the body, and cardiac tissue makes contractions of the heart possible.
The relationship between the form and function of connective tissue is that the matrix of living and non-living cells enable the tissue to perform its job of providing connection, protection, a framework, storage, and the transportation of substances.
The relationship between the form and function of epithelial tissue is that its tightly packed layers enables it to protect, absorb, secrete, filter, excrete, and provide sensory perception. The squamous, cuboidal, and columnar shapes and thicknesses make the tissue more useful for different parts of the body.
The relationship between the form and function of nervous tissue is that the axon included in the nerve cell provides an area for nerve impulses to travel, and the neuroglia provide protection for the neurons.
