1

What is the function of this tissue?

simple columnar epithelial tissue 

absorption; secretion of mucus, enzymes, and other substances; ciliated type propels mucus by ciliary action

2

What is the function of this tissue?

transitional epithelial tissue stretches readily and permits distension of urinary organ by contained urine

3

What is the function of this tissue?

stratified squamous epithelial tissue protects underlying tissues in areas subjected to abrasion

4

What is the function of this tissue?

stratified columnar epithelial tissue

secretion and protection

4

What is the function of this tissue?

stratified columnar epithelial tissue

secretion and protection

5

What is the function of this tissue?

neurons transmit electrical signals from sensory receptors and to effectors (muscles and glands) which control their activity

6

What is the function of this tissue?

simple cuboidal epithelial tissue 

secretion and absorption

7

What is the function of this tissue?

skeletal muscle tissue provides voluntary movement, locomotion, manipulation of environment, facial expression, and voluntary control

8

What is the function of this tissue?

cardiac muscle tissue propels blood into the circulation as it contracts

10

What is the function of this tissue?

stratified cuboidal epithelial tissue

barrier, conduit

11

What is the function of this tissue?

simple squamous epithelial tissue allows passage of materials by diffusion and filtration in sites where protection is not important.

Secretes lubricating substances in serosae

12

What is the function of this tissue?

smooth muscle tissue propels substances or objects along internal passageways; involuntary control
