  3. The epithelium of the tongue develops from foregut endoderm. (Web site)

Nervous

  1. In humans, epithelium is classified as a primary body tissue, the other ones being connective tissue, muscle tissue and nervous tissue.
  2. This includes epithelial tissues (epithelium), connective tissues, (ligaments and bone), muscle tissue and nervous tissue. (Web site)

Disruption

  1. The turbulence caused by this disruption slows the air and directs it toward the olfactory epithelium.

Epithelial

  1. Each epithelial tissue, or epithelium, is given two names.
  2. Epithelial tissue that is only one cell thick is known as simple epithelium. (Web site)
  3. The soft tissue is covered by an epithelial layer (red) called the oral epithelium. (Web site)
