Simple squamous epithelial cells

Are flattened cells in a single row

1

Simple epithelium

A single row of cells having the same shape

2

Simple cuboidal epithelial cells

Cubes
Having sides of approximately equal length and are lined up adjacent to one another

3

Simple columnar epithelial cells

Tall columns with sides much longer than the base

4

Stratified epithelium

Two or more layers of c

5

Pseudostratified

Cells of various heights do not reach the surface

6

Cilia

Hair like projections
Purpose of removing material
Loss of cilia may cause clinical problems

7

Smooth muscle cells

A single nucelus and appear as elongated spindles with a smooth glossy cytoplasm

8

Striated muscle cells

Serveral nuclei in each cell
Cytoplasm includes striation (actin and myosin)
Found in skeletal and cardiac muscle tissues

9

Nerve cells (neurons)

Large and complex contain numerous cell processes that extend variety of directions
Electrical signals are transmitted
Intricate actions conducted within the nervous system

10

Bone cells (osteocyctes)

Small spider like cells arranged in a circular array around collections of blood vessels and nerves

11

Oocytes

Reproductive germ cells in women
Large, egg shaped cells containing chromosomal material within a prominent nucelus

12

Sperm (spermatozoa)

Male reproductive germ cells
Nuclear material contained in a compact, bullet shaped head and long tail
