Flashcards in Chapter 5 Deck (29):
A slightly movable joint
Bones of the limbs and limb girdles that are attached to the axial skeleton.
The cartilage covering the articular surfaces of the bones forming a synovial joint.
Joint; point where two bones meet.
The bones of the skull, vertebral column, thorax, and sternum
Bones of the thorax, including ribs, sternum, and thoracic vertebrae.
Joints connected entirely by cartilage. Allows more movement between bones than a fibrous joint but less than the highly mobile synovial joint.
Dense bone in which the bony matrix is solidly filled with organic ground substance and inorganic salts, leaving only tiny spaces that contain the bone cells
The main or midsection (shaft) of a long bone.
Incomplete bony basin formed by the two coxal bones that secures the lower limbs to the sacrum of the axial skeleton.
Double-layered connective tissue that covers and nourishes the bone
Flexible tissue in the interior of bones. Found mostly in the flat bones.
Bones that are as wide as they are long.
Composite of two bones, scapula and clavicle, that attach the upper limb to the axial skeleton; also called the pectoral girdle.
Bony enclosure for the brain.
A freely movable joint.
Area at the long end of a bone that contains growing bone.
The end of a long bone
Connections between bones that are held together by fibrous connective tissue that includes many collagen fibers
Made up of a layer of spongy bone between two thin layers of compact bone. Their shape is flattened, not rounded. Examples include the skill and ribs. Flat bones have marrow, but not a bone marrow cavity.
The disks of fibrocartilage between the vertebrae
Classification of bones that refer to the bones that do not fit into the other classifications.
Tissue connecting bone to bone
Bones that are longer in length than in width.
Network of irregularly-shaped sheets and spikes of bone.
An immovable joint
Freely movable joint exhibiting a joint cavity enclosed by an articular (fibrous) capsule lined with synovial membrane.
The spine, formed of a number of individual bones called vertebrae and two composite bones (sacrum and coccyx)
