What are the different types of movements exhibited by the cells of human body?
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.
