Blood Tissue - Anatomy & physiology revision about the structure and functions of human tissue types. Blood tissues are located inside the blood vessels and also within the chambers of the heart. Some white blood cells are also found in other types of body tissues e.g. lymphocytes are also in the lymphatic system.
Bone Tissue - Anatomy & physiology revision about the structure and functions of human tissue types. Bone tissue, also called osseous tissue, is classified as either compact bone, or spongy bone depending on how the bone matrix and cells are organized. Functions of bone tissue are listed below.
Yellow Elastic Tissue - Anatomy & Physiology Revision about the Structure and Functions of Human Tissue Types. Yellow elastic tissue is one of the three types of dense connective tissue. It can extend when forces are applied to stretch it, yet return undamaged to its previous condition when the extending force is released.
White fibrous tissue is connective tissue in which there is a greater proportion of white inelastic fibres than of elastic fibres. The dominance of the (white, inelastic) collagen fibres contributes to the considerable mechanical strength of white fibrous tissue.
