Anatomy and Physiology is a dynamic textbook for the two-semester human anatomy and physiology course for life science and allied health majors. The book is organized by body system and covers standard scope and sequence requirements. Its lucid text, strategically constructed art, career features, and links to external learning tools address the critical teaching and learning challenges in the course. The web-based version of Anatomy and Physiology also features links to surgical videos, histology, and interactive diagrams.
Information on tissues for anatomy and physiology.
Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.
By the end of this section, you will be able to:Describe epithelial tissuesDiscuss the different types of connective tissues in animalsDescribe three types of muscle tissuesDescribe nervous tissue
By the end of this section, you will be able to:Classify the different types of muscle tissueExplain the role of muscles in locomotion
Tissues are groups of cells working together. A specific tissue has similar cells which perform a particular function. In this activity we will look at various types of tissue to see how structure is related to function. You will be researching several different types of tissues. For each tissue you will include a description/picture/drawing, list at least one function and list at least one place it is found in the human body. You may use the following charts, or you may record your information in another format of your own design (google slides, etc.). You may use the internet or resource books to help you find the information.
This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:
"Fibroblasts are responsible for producing and assembling the extracellular matrix (ECM), the scaffolding material that gives tissues their structure, which is critical in shaping the form and function of muscle throughout the body. Fibroblast function is aided by the shuttling of extracellular vesicles (EVs) – tiny sacs of cellular material that facilitate communication between cells. EV research has focused largely on their role in cancer, but a new study has examined their function in human muscle. Proteomics experiments revealed three distinct profiles for EVs released from tendon fibroblasts, muscle fibroblasts, and differentiating myoblasts. Fibroblast-derived EVs were more similar to one another than to EVs from myoblasts. However, while EVs from tendon fibroblasts showed an abundance of proteins supporting ECM synthesis. EVs from muscle fibroblasts were enriched in proteins that support myofiber function and components of the skeletal muscle matrix..."
