Tissue of the Body by Mind Map: Tissue of the Body

1. Dense: Connective tissue which is closely packed with high amounts of collagen and elastic fibers in matrix; tough; periosteum, fascia

1.1. a.Ligamentsq

1.2. b. Tendons

2. c. Cardiac: in heart only; resembles strained muscle tissue, but also has branches; involuntary

4. Epithelial

4.1. Covers all free body surface, and lines also covers organs.

4.2. Classification

4.2.1. Number of layers of cells: a. Simple epithelial tissue: has one layer only b. Stratified epithelial tissue: made up of several layers

4.2.2. Cell shape: a. Squamous: Flat, leaf-like cells b. Cuboidal: like a cube; has shape and depth c. Columnar: long tall cells

4.3. Kinds of epithelial tissue

4.3.1. Simple squamous

4.3.2. Simple cuboidal

4.3.3. Simple columnar

4.3.4. Stratified Squamous

4.3.5. Stratified Columnar

4.3.6. Pseudo stratified columnar

4.3.7. Transitional

5. Muscles

5.1. a. Striated: makes up skeletal muscles; cells have stations or stripes and many nuclei; voluntary

5.2. b. Smooth: makes up the walls of hollow organ, as in respiratory, digestive reproductive tracts and blood vessels; involuntary

6. Connective

6.1. Connects, supports, protects, frames, fills space, stores fat, and produces blood cells. It's a fibroblast which releases a material that surrounds and embeds the cell.

6.2. Cell types

6.2.1. a. Fibroblast: large star shaped cell whose function is to produce intercellular matrix; this matrix is largely the protein collagen

6.2.2. b. Macrophage: a phagocyte attached to fibroblasts

6.2.3. c. Mast Cells: found near blood vessels for the inflammatory response

6.2.4. d. Blood Cells: RBC's and WBC's and platelets

6.3. Types of Connective Tissue

6.3.1. Loose: Connective tissue with a loosely woven fluid matrix; Flexible a. Areolar b. Adipose

6.3.2. Specialized Connective Tissue a. Cartilage b. Bone c. Blood d. Dentin

6.4. Types Of Connective Tissue - What Is Connective Tissue - Functions Of Connective Tissue

7. Nervous

7.1. Tissue to produce movement.

7.2. Makes up the brain, spinal cord and nerves

7.3. a. Neurons: principal cell of nervous system

7.4. b. Glial cell: supports or "helpers" cell for neurons
