Types of movement
The different types of movements that occur in the cells of our body are amoeboid, ciliary, flagellar and muscular movement.
Amoeboid movement - Cells such as macrophages exhibit amoeboid movement for engulfing pathogens by pseudopodia formed by the streaming movement of the cytoplasm.
Ciliary movement - This type of movement occurs in the respiratory passages and genital tracts which are lined by ciliated epithelial cells.
Flagellar movement - This type of movement occurs in the cells which are having flagella or whip-like motile organelle. The sperm cells show flagellar movement.
Muscular movement -The movement of hands, legs, jaws, tongue are caused by the contraction and relaxation of the muscle which is termed as the muscular movement.
