4.1 Types of tissues

What is a tissue?
  • A collection of cells of the same type that perform a common function
  • There are 4 major tissue types in the body:
    • Connective
    • Muscular
    • Nervous
    • Epithelial
the four tissues of the body
The four tissues of the Body
  • Epithelial Tissue: “covering”
    • Covers exposed surfaces
    • Lines internal passageways
    • Forms glands
  • Connective Tissue: “support”
    • Fills internal spaces
    • Provides structure and strength to support other tissues
    • Transports materials
    • Stores energy
the four tissues of the body1
The four tissues of the Body
  • Muscle Tissue: “movement”
    • Specialized for contraction
    • Skeletal muscle, heart muscle, and walls of hollow organs
  • Neural Tissue: “control”
    • Carries electrical signals from 1 part of the body to another
1 connective tissue

4.2 Connective tissue connects and supports

1. Connective tissue
  • Binds and supports parts of the body
  • All have specialized cells, ground substance and protein fibers
  • Ground substance is noncellular and ranges from solid to fluid
    • prevents microbe penetration
  • The ground substance and proteins fibers together make up the matrix of the tissue
  • There are three main types of connective tissue: A. fibrous , B. supportive and C. fluid
1 connective tissue1
1. Connective Tissue

Protein Fiber types:

1. Collagen fibers: collagen protein

-resists force

2. Reticular fibers: collagen protein

-branchy, forms framework

-framework of an organ

3. Elastic fibers: elastin protein

-wavy, flexible

- Designed to stretch

    • Prevents passage of water and solutes
  • Adhesion junctions – cytoskeletal fibers join between cells and have flexibility
  • Gap junctions – a fusion of adjacent plasma membranes with small channels between them that allow small molecules to diffuse
    • Allow ions to pass
    • Coordinated contractions in heart muscle
glandular epithelia
Glandular Epithelia

For secretion, makes up glands

  • Endocrine glands: “internally secreting”

-secrete into interstital fluid  blood

-secretions = hormones

-regulate and coordinate activities

e.g. pancreas andthyroid

  • Exocrine glands: “externally secreting”

-secrete into duct  epithelial surface

e.g. digestive enzymes, perspiration, tears,

milk, and mucus

exocrine types of secretion
Exocrine: Types of Secretion
  • Serous Glands: water + enzymes

- e.g. parotid salivary gland

  • Mucus Glands: mucin

(+water = mucus)

- e.g. goblet cell

  • Many organs work in more than 1 organ system

4.9 Homeostasis

  • The ability to maintain a relatively constant internal environment in the body
  • The nervous and endocrine systems are key in maintaining homeostasis
  • Changes from the normal tolerance limits results in illness or even death
  • All systems important in maintaining homeostasis
negative feedback
The primary mechanism for maintaining homeostasis

Has two components:


control center

The output of the system dampens the original stimulus

4.9 Homeostasis

Negative feedback
positive feedback

4.9 Homeostasis

Positive feedback
  • A mechanism for increasing the change of the internal environment in one direction
  • An example is the secretion of oxytocin during birth to continually increase uterine contractions
  • Can be harmful such as when a fever is too high and continues to rise
  • Requires coordinated efforts of multiple organ systems. Any adjustment made by one physiological system has direct and indirect effects on a variety of other systems. Therefore, the use of homeostasis integrates the human body to allow for the support of life.
structure of the integument
Structure of the Integument
  • 16% of body mass
