Unformatted text preview: Human Anatomy and Physiology 1110 Tissues Tissues Tissues : Learning Objectives Learning Objectives 1. Name, classify, and describe the structure and function of the various types of epithelia. 2. Define gland, and differentiate between exocrine and endocrine glands. 3. Describe the structure and function of the types of connective tissue in the body. 4. Compare and contrast the structures and locations of the three types of muscle tissue. 5. Describe the structure and function of cutaneous, mucous, and serous membranes. 6. Describe the process of inflammation and tissue repair. Groups of cells similar in structure and function The four types of tissues Epithelial Connective Muscle Nerve Tissues Tissues Epithelial Tissue - Classification Structure : single layer of flat cells. Function: diffusion, filtration, secretion, absorption. Location : lining of blood and lymphatic vessels (endothelium) and small ducts, alveoli of the lungs, loop of Henle in kidney tubules, lining of serous membranes (mesothelium) and inner surface of the eardrum. Tissues Epithelial Tissue: Simple Squamous Structure : single layer of cube-shaped cells; some with microvilli (kidney tubules) or cilia (terminal bronchioles of the lungs). Function: secretion, absorption, movement. Location : kidney tubules, choroid plexus (brain), terminal bronchioles (lungs), and ovaries . Tissues Epithelial Tissue: Simple Cuboidal Structure : single layer of tall, narrow cells. Some have cilia (bronchioles of lungs, auditory tubes, uterine tubes, and uterus) or microvilli (intestine). Function: movement, secretion, absorption. Location : glands and some ducts, bronchioles of lungs, auditory tubes, uterus, uterine tubes, stomach, intestines, gallbladder, bile ducts and ventricles of the brain. Tissues Epithelial Tissue: Simple Columnar Structure : multiple layers of cells (basal = cuboidal/columnar; apical = squamous). Function: protection against abrasion, caustic chemicals, water loss, and infection. Location : Moist- mouth, throat, larynx, esophagus, anus, vagina, inferior urethra, and cornea. Keratinized- skin Tissues Epithelial Tissue: Stratified Squamous Structure : multiple layers of somewhat cube-shaped cells. Function: secretion, absorption and protection against infections. Location : sweat gland ducts, ovarian follicular cells, and salivary gland ducts. Tissues Epithelial Tissue: Stratified Cuboidal Structure : multiple layers of cells with tall thin cells. Cells ciliated in the larynx. Function : protection and secretion. Location : mammary gland duct, larynx, portion of male urethra....
