A&P Lab Test 1

  1. Epithelial tissue
    own nerve supply, avascular, blood vessels in the connective tissue bring in nutrients and eliminate waste (covers the body's external and internal surfaces and comprise most glands)
  2. Connective tissue
    bind and support parts, high vascular, consist of extracellular matrix and cells, high vascular, nerve supply
  3. Muscular tissue
    makes movement possible
  4. nervous tissue
    conduct impulses from one part of the body to another and help to control and coordinate body activities
  5. Stratified
    consist of two or more layers of cells that protect underlying tissues in locations where there is considerable wear and tear
  6. Squamos
    Are thin, which allows for the rapid passage of substances through them.
  7. Cuboidal
    Are tall as they are wide and are shaped like cubes or hexagons. They may have microvilli at their apical surface and function in either secretion or absorption.
  8. Columnar
    Are much taller than they are wild, like columns, and protect underlying tissues. Their apical surfaces may have cilia or microvilli, and they often are specialized for secretion and absorption.
  9. Proprioceptor
    Located in muscles, tendons, joints and inner ear; provide information about body position, muscle length and tension, position and motion of joints, and equilibrium.
  10. Thermoreceptors
    Detect changes in temperature
