ANATOMY: Diagram of Human Tissue. A tissue is made up of a group of cells that usually look similar to one another and come from the same region in a developing embryo.

The special function of a tissue is also influenced by the kind of material that surrounds the tissue and by communication among the cells of the tissue.
