Caption: Tongue. Light micrograph of a section through healthy tongue tissue. The surface of the tongue (across top) consists of stratified squamous epithelium (dark purple) with a rough keratinised surface. Below this are interlacing bundles of muscles, between which are mucous glands. The projections on the surface of the tongue are papillae, which house the taste buds.
