Nervous Tissue
Skeltal Muscle
Cardiac Muscle
Smooth Muscle
Function, Location: Simple Squamous Epithelium
Function: Allows passage of materials by diffusion, secretes lubricating substance in serosae

Location: Kidney, air sacs of lungs, lining of heart, blood vessels, lympathic vessels, lining of ventral body cavity (serosae)
Function, Location Of: Simple Cubodial Epithelium
Function: secretion and absorption

Location: kidney tubules, ducts and secretory portions of small glands, ovary surface
Function, Location Of: Simple Columnar Epithelium
Function: (some bear cilia layer) absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes and other substances; cilia propels mucus

Location: nonciliated types: digestive tract (stomach to anal canal), gall bladder, and excretory ducts of some glands, ciliated types: line small bronchi, uterine tubes, and some regions of uterus
Function, Location Of: Pseudostratified Columnar Epithelium
Function: secretion, particularly of mucus, propulsio of mucus by ciliary action

Location: non-ciliated types in male's sperm carrying ducts and ducts of large glands, ciliated types line the trachea, most of upper respiratory tract
Function, Location Of: Stratified Squamous Epithelium
Function: protects underlying tissues in area subjected to abrasion

Location: nonkeratinized type formsthe moist lining of the esophagus, mouth, and vagina, keratinized variety forms the epidermis of the skin
Function, Location Of: Transitional Epithelium
Function: stretches readily and permits distension of urinary organ by urine

Location: only lines the ureters, urinary bladder, and part of urethra
Description, Function, Location Of: Areolar - Loose Connective Tissue
description: gel-like matrix with all three fiber types

function: wraps and cushions organs

location: widely distributed under epithelia of body, forms lamina propria of muccous membrans, packages organs and surrounds capillaries
Description, Function, Location Of: Adipose - Loose Connective Tissue
description: like areolar but very sparse, closely packed with fat cells

Function: provides reserve fuel, insulates against heat loss, supports and protects organs

Location: under skin, around kidneys and eyeballs, within abdomen, in breasts
Description, Function, Location Of: Dense Regular Connective Tissue
Description: primarily parallel collagen fibers, a few elastic fibers, major cell type is fibroblast

function: attaches muscles to bones or to muscles, attaches bone to bone withstands great tensile stress

location: tendons, most ligaments, aponeuroses
Description, Function, Location Of: Cartilage: hyaline
description: amorphous but firm matrix

function: supports and reinforces, has resilient cushioning properties, resists compressive stress

location:  forms most of the embryonic skeleton, covers long ends of bones in joint cavities, forms costal catilages of the ribs, cartilages of mose, trachea, larynx
Description, Function, Location Of: Bone - Osseous Tissue
description: hard, calcified matrix containing many collagen fibers, very well vascularized

function: bone supports and protects, provides levers for muscles to move on, stores calcium, fat and other minerals, marrow: site for blood formation

location: bones!
Description, function, Location Of: Nervous Tissue
description: neurons are branching cells

function: transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effectors (muscles and glands)

location: brain, spinal cord, and nerves
Function, Location Of: Skeletal Muscle
function: voluntary movement, locomotion

location: in skeletal muscles attached to bones, occasionally attached to skin
Function and Location of: Cardiac Muscle
function: as it contracts, it propels blood into the circulation, involuntary control

location: the walls of the heart
Function and location of: Smooth Muscle
function: propels substances or objects along internal passageways, involuntary control

location: mostly the walls of hollow organs
