IN YOUR TEXT…. . We see leukocytes ( WBCs )  amongst the reticular fibers in this tissue. This  is  TRUE! However,  we also know there are  RETICULOCYTES What     are    Reticulocytes?

Reticulocytes    are basically FIBROBLASTS  which create      RETICULAR  FIBERS Can you distinguish  RETICULOCYTES from  LEUCOCYTES?     It may be difficult Remember….the MAST CELL is large.

Elastic Tissue is considered in a CLASS alone  due to its . Elastic Tissue is DEFINITELY VERY  REGULAR…. .just observe how Parallel the elastic  fibers lie!!! However they are EXTREMELY DENSE and of  one kind of tissue…so in a class by itself  …and  yes the fibers reflect YELLOW WAVELENTHS…

Why do arteries need to stretch anyway? If you think this has something to do with  accomodating the great deal of blood pressure … you  ARE CORRECT!! Arterial plaque (hardening of the arteries) can  compromise this tissue….Its looses its stretching  abillity……NOT GOOD…but this is another topic.

The ligamentum nuchæ is a  fibrous membrane, which, in  the neck, represents the  supraspinal ligaments of the  lower vertebræ.  It extends  from the external  occipital protuberance  and median  nuchal line to the  spinous process of the seventh cervical vertebra . This is a very ELASTIC  ligament that basically  supports the head.  This one is LN
