Study of tissues

12

What's the difference between connective tissue and epithelial tissue?

Epithelial tissue has many cells packed together with no extracellular matrix

Connective tissue has a few scattered cells surrounded by a lot of matrix

13

What do cell junctions do?

Contact points between the plasma membranes of tissue cells
