    Connective Tissue Power Point

    I need help with a Connective Tissue Power Point Presentation that also has references. This power point needs cover the function, structure and places of connective tissue.

    At first glance, preparing a presentation on connective tissue may seem cumbersome. However, dividing it into topics simplify the presentation and understanding of the topic.

    Below, you will find a possible presentation schema. Each slide has the title and content followed by the slide notes. This way you can place it on your own power point format, add pictures, and modify or expand the content or modify the notes according to the information found in your textbooks. (The site maintained by the Southern Illinois School of Medicine [listed below under King, D] has illustrations and images that can be incorporated into this presentation). References used can be found at the end.
    Hope this helps you. Thanks for using BrainMass,

    Slide no.1
    Title: Connective tissue

    Slide Content:
    - Derives from the mesenchyme
    - Components:
    - Proportions of those components give type of tissue and function

    Slide note:
    The origin of the connective tissue, explains its location in the adult body. The mesenchyme is in the middle of the ectoderm and endoderm, and in a way gives the connective tissue the ability to support cells such as the epithelial tissues, for cells to be embedded within the connective tissue like the nerve tissue, or for cells to travel within like the bloods vessels (Beresford, n.d.; King, 2011).

    The connective tissue is composed of various types of individual cells embedded in an amorphous 'ground substance' reinforced by specialized fibers called extracellular matrix (Beresford, n.d.; connective tissue, 2012; King, 2011).
    The proportions of these components vary from one part of the body to another depending on the local structural requirements (connective tissue, 2012).

    Slide no.2
    Title: Connective Tissue Components - Cells

    Slide Content: '(place it in a two column format)'
    Stationary cells
    - fibroblasts
    - adipocytes
    - macrophages*
    - mast cells *

    Migrating cells
    - monocytes
    - lymphocytes
    - plasma cells
    - eosinophils
    * Some authors consider mast cells and macrophages as migrating cells-you should refer to their textbook.

    Slide note:
    The most common cells found in the connective tissue can be divided into two category: stationary cells (have no movement) that includes fibroblasts, adipocytes, and migrating cells (have the ability to move to extracellular spaces as needed) such as mast cells, macrophages, monocytes, lymphocytes, plasma cells, and eosinophils.

    **This slide can be followed by one (slide 3) that talks about the stationary cells with images of them (foud at King, D reference at the Southern Illinois School of Medicine website) and another one (slide 4) of the immigrant cells also with images (found at the same as before) and the following information.***

    Slide no.3
    Title: Connective Tissue Components - Stationary Cells

    Slide Content:
    Fibroblasts - secretes collagen
    Adipocytes - stores fat
    Mast cells - triggers alarm
    Macrophages - destroys foreign bodies, cleans debris

    Slide ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution involves a description on how to do a power point on connective tissue. Each slide has content and notes that willl help you create your own power point presentation on connective tissue. References including one where you can download piuctures for your presentation are included.
