Tissues and Tattoos The four types of tissue are epithelia, connective tissue, muscle tissue and neural tissue. They are all different but all serve a general purpose to cover, fill and protect what is underneath. Epithelia cover exposed surfaces, line internal passageways, chambers and produce glandular secretions. Connective tissues are responsible for filling internal spaces, provide structural support and store energy. Muscle tissue contract to produce active movement. Neural tissues conduct electrical impulses and carries information. The protected regions of our body for example our kidney tubes, the lining of the ventral body cavities and the lining of blood vessels are called simple squamous epithelium, they protect regions in which absorption takes place or where a slippery surface reduces friction. Stratified squamous epithelium protects when there are severe mechanical stresses the lining of the mouth and esophagus are prime examples of the epithelium. I believe that if the cutaneous membrane was damaged it would heal in time after all it is our skin and we know that in most people it heals with the help of red blood cells. The mucous membrane is different from the cutaneous membrane because the mucous membranes are found on the inside of the body. Mucous membranes line the urogenital tract, digestive tract and respiratory tract as well. If the mucous membranes get damaged the mucous cannot do its job by fighting off infection. The serous membrane lines the cavities in the body that secrete fluids such as the lungs, heart, stomach, and intestines. The serous membrane is made up of a thin layer or mesothelium covering connective tissue. If the serous membrane got damaged the organs in your body would have a hard time doing their jobs. The fourth and final type of membrane is in charge for surrounding the synovial joints such as the hips, knees, elbows
