Flashcards in Quiz 2 - Subclassifications of CT proper Deck (19):
1

loose connective tissue contain...

areolar, adipose, and reticular

2

areolar

open framework; connects skin to muscle; around blood vessels, nerves and joints; resilient (can be stretched and distorted)

3

adipose

cushions and insulates; stores energy (fat cell/tissue)

4

reticular

open, supporting framework

5

regular dense connective tissue

collagen fibers are packed tightly and aligned parallel to forces - consist of tendons, aponeuroses, elastic tissue and ligaments

6

tendons

connects muscle to bone

7

ligaments

connects bone to bone

8

aponeuroses

connects muscle to muscle or covers entire muscle

9

elastic tissue

resilient, connect vertebrae; also in blood vessels

10

fluid connective tissue

consists of cartilage (hyaline, elastic, fibrous)

11

cartilage

provide a strong framework that supports rest of body

12

hyaline

most common and weakest type
- flexible support
- between ribs and sternum; articular cartilages at joints

13

elastic

closely packed elastic fibers
- flexible support
- pinna, larynx

14

fibrous

abundant collagen fibers
- resists compression; absorbs shocks
- between spinal vertebrae and pubic bones; around and within joints and tendons

15

Other types of tissue

muscle tissue (skeletal, cardiac, smooth) and neural tissue

16

skeletal muscle tissue

long, striated, multinucleate; voluntary control

17

cardiac muscle tissue

short, striated, branched, mononuclear; involuntary control

18

smooth muscle tissue

short, non-striated, spindle-shaped, mononuclear; involuntary control (found in hollow organs and vessels)

19

neural tissue

specialized to conduct electrical signals through the body
