Cell shapes and arrangements

Main Concepts

  • Types of epithelial cells
  • Different arrangements of these epithelial cell types
  • Relationship between form and function

Extra Resources

Below are some histology (cells under a microscope) images of different epithelial types. It will be useful to familiarise yourself with their real-life appearance.

Learning tip: Try to relate this to what you have learned from the video. What might their functions be? What other types of tissues might you find these cell types and arrangements?
