Caption

Human tongue surface. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through the surface of a human tongue, showing connective tissue (yellow) and the epithelium skin layer (red/orange). Epithelial cells are flat, scale-like squamous cells that are constantly shed and replaced. The epithelium covers the sensory papillae (small projections) on the tongue, which are sensitive to several different sensory stimuli, including taste. Magnification: x48 when printed 10 centimetres wide.
