Movement is a characteristic feature of living organisms. The different types of movement exhibited by cells of the human body are:

  • Amoeboid movement: Leucocytes present in the blood show amoeboid movement. During tissue damage, these blood cells move from the circulatory system towards the injury site to initiate an immune response.

  • Ciliary movement: Reproductive cells such as sperms and ova show ciliary movement. The passage of ova through the fallopian tube towards the uterus is facilitated by this movement.

  • Muscular movement: Muscle cells show muscular movement.
