Tissue Types

Connective Tissue

Epithelial Tissue

Muscular Tissue


Nervous Tissue

The function of Epithelial Tissues include: secretion, selective absorption, protection, transcellular transport and sensation detection. The cells in this type of tissue are usually very tightly packed and form a sort of continous sheet.

The functions of Nervous Tissues include: sensory input, integration, control of muscles and glands, homeostasis, and mental activity. These tissues are composed of neurons that help form its structure, these transmit the signals throughout the tissue for communication and sensory.

Mucsular Tissues carry out he movements within our body and help with the structure and support. We have both involuntray and voluntary muscle movements, with smooth, skeletal, and cardiac muscle tissues.


Connective Tissue works as a sort of cushioning and storage of energy, it also helps repair body tissues, provides the structural framework for the body, supplies hormones throughout the body, and acts as a nutritional support system.

I believe that nervous tissue is most important in its location and for its function in our body. Nervous tissue is found in our brain and spine/spinal cord, this is crucial because its allows us to feel and sense things around us, stemming from the largest part of our body. The fact that it's also in the brain allows our bodies to maintain homeostasis by sensing something is wrong and directly send that message through an impulse to our brain which controls homeostasis.
