31: Epithelial Tissue


42 minutes

In this lesson we will finish our discussion of epithelial tissue by looking at all the various types. Some epithelial tissue is a single layer of cells.  Sometimes there is a stack of cells and we call the tissue stratified.  We’ll also look two unusual types: pseudostratified and transitional.   In future lessons, we’ll meet each of these tissues where they occur in organs.  A few of these types occur in only one place, but most of them occur in lots of places.

Here are a some extra video clips (short ones, just a few minutes long– not like our lesson videos!) that you might enjoy.  (Note: If links to supplemental videos no longer work, I apologize.  I don’t have control over these videos, so if someone wants to take them down there is nothing I can do about it.  If you find a video link that is no longer valid, just drop me an email to let me know, and I can try to replace it.   ejm.basementworkshop@gmail.com)
