1. The study of tissues
  2. The four major tissue types
    • Epithelial Tissue
    • Connective Tissue
    • Muscle Tissue
    • Nervous Tissue
  3. The three types of Intercellular Junctions
    • Tight Junctions
    • Desmosomes
    • Gap Junctions
  4. Junction with close space between cells
    Located among cells that form linings
    Tight Junctions
  5. Form "spot welds" between cells
    Located among outer skin cells
  6. Junction that has tubular channels between cells
    Located in cardiac muscle cells
    Gap Junctions
  7. Single layer of flat cells
    Line air sacs, blood vessels, lymphatic cells
    Simple Squamous Epithelial
  8. Single layer of cube-shaped cells
    Lines kidney tubules and ducts of some glands
    Covers ovaries
    Simple Cuboidal Epithelial
  9. Single layer of elongated cells
    Nuclei usually near the basement
    Line uterus, stomach, intestines
    Simple Columnar Epithelial
  10. Single layer of elongated cells
    Appear striated
    Line respiratory passageways
    Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelial
  11. Many cell layers
    Lines oral cavity, vagina, anal canal
    Stratified Squamous Epithelial
  12. 2-3 Layers of cube-shaped cells
    Line ducts of mammary glands, sweat glands, salivary glands and the pancreas
    Stratified Cuboidal Epithelial
  13. Top layer of elongated cells
    Line part of male urethra and part of pharynx
    Stratified Columnar Epithelial
  14. Many cell layers
    Cube-shaped and elongated cells
    Line urinary bladder, ureters, and part of urethra
    Transitional Epithelial
  15. Duct-less glands that produce hormones
    Endocrine Glands
  16. Exocrine glands have ducts, and can come in 2 types
    What are the types?
    • Unicellular
    • Multicellular
