The human body far surpasses the modern computer in its complexity. The various parts of the human body, composed of diverse types of tissues, work together as a whole, resulting in the seamless operation of the body. 


The cells that make up the specific tissues and organs of the body are specialized to their purpose; different types of cells will be found in different parts of the body in order that the tissue can perform the task it has been assigned. For example, the tissue of the alveolar sacs of the lungs is composed of immeasurably thin epithelial tissue, allowing for the exchange of gases. The cells that make up the various nerve bundles in the body have long extensions which allow for the transmission of the nerve impulses from cell to cell.


The following pages will chronicle the operation and structure of twenty various tissues in the human body. These pages have been divided based on the bodily system each tissue belongs to; the cardiovascular system, the respiratory system, the musculoskeletal system, the digestive system, the nervous system, the endocrine system, the reproductive system, and the connective tissues. However, it should be noted the classification of these tissues is not set in stone; many of them can be included under numerous branches of the bodily systems, because they are essential in the functioning of more that one area of the body.


 Detailed slides will also be included in the report, which show an accurate rendition of the twenty slides on the cellular level. All the slides have been drawn at the 400 magnification level of the microscopes used in this year’s biology class.
