The Tissue Level of Organization
In terms of the Levels of Organization in living systems, cells combine to make tissues. To be more
specific, lets give a good working definition of tissues. Tissues are groups of cells an
Tissue = a group of cells and cell products with
similar structure and function.
There are four 1o tissues in the body:
Functions of Epithelial Tissue
Sulci (sulcus) grooves on surface of cerebrum.
Gyri (gyrus) fold of brain tissue between sulci.
Fissure - deep groove, separating hemispheres.
Three kinds of cerebral functional area:
1) Sensory areas
2) Association areas
3) Motor areas
