What is Tissue Mind Map

Tissue-Mind-Map
Muscular (Contractile) Tissue
Function
Moves the body and its parts
Types
Skeletal Muscle
a.k.a. voluntary muscle
Found: Attached by tendons to the bones of
the skeleton (when it contracts, body
moves)
Apperance: Cylindrical an long with
the nuclei located at the periphery of
the cell
Smooth (Visceral) Muscle
Unlike skeletal muscle, muscle
is involuntary (not under
voluntary control), is slower to
contract but stays contracted for
a longer period of time
Found: In the walls of the intestine, stomach,
and other internal organs. As well as, found in
blood vessels
Cardiac Muscle
Found: only in the walls of the
heart (contraction controls
heartbeat)
Appearance: branched cells, have
single (central) nucleus, has
striations
Appearance/ Composition
Composed of muscle fibers (cells) which contain
actin filaments and myosin filaments (cause
movement)
Picture
Connective Tissue
Function
Binds organs together, provides
support and protection, fills spaces,
produces blood cells, and stores fat
i.e. Protection for epithelium
and internal organs
Can form protective covering
Connect muscles to bones, and
bones to other bones and joints
Found
In the lungs, arteries, urinary bladder, internal
organs, tendons, ligaments, beneath the skin,
around the kidneys, on the surface of the
heart, lymph nodes
Are cartilage, bones, and blood
Types
Differ according to thype of matrix
and the abundance of fibers in the
matrix
Loose Fibrous and Dense Fibrous Tissues
Adipose Tissue and Reticular
Connective Tissue
Cartilage
Bone
Blood
Not all people classify this as a
connective tissue (vascular tissue
instead)
Appearance/ Composition
Are widely seperated by a matrix (made up of a
noncellular material that can vary from being
solid to semifluid to fluid
Connective Tissue
Nervuous Tissue
Function
Recieves stimuli and conducts nerve impulses
Nervous system has three functions:
sensory input, integration of data, and
motor outout
Found
In the brain and spinal cord (nervous system)
Appearance/ Composition
Contains neurons: specialized nervous cells
Nervous System
Contain Neuroglia
Nine times more in number than neurons
Support and nourish neutrons
Picture
Epithelial Tissue a.k.a Epithelium
Function
Mainly for protection
External: from injury, drying
out, pathogen invasion
Internal: secrets mucus along digestive
tract and sweeps up impurities from the
lungs
Also for secretion, absorption,
excretion, and filtration
Found
Covers body surfaces and lines boy cavities
In the lining of the lungs, blood vessels,
kidney tubules, digestive tracts, and
oviducts
Types
Squamous epithelium
Cubodial epithelium
Columnar epithelium
Appearance/ Composition
Occur in more than one layer
Named according to the shape of the cell
Cells lining a body cavity can be
ciliated and/or grandular
Tightly packed cells that form a
continous layer
