In this tutorial, we will introduce you to the 4 main types of tissues in the human body: epithelial tissue, connective tissue, muscle tissue and nervous tissue. Epithelial tissue creates protective boundaries and is involved in the diffusion of ions and molecules, whereas connective tissue underlies and supports other tissue types. Muscle tissue contracts to initiate movement in the body and nervous tissue transmits and integrates information through the central and peripheral nervous systems.
