Connective tissue  connects bodily structures.  It binds, supports, and anchors the body and is  the most abundant type of tissue in the body  Types  o Soft connective tissue  Skin  o Regular or dense connective tissue  includes the dermis of the skin and tissue of tendons. o Elastic connective tissue  Heart  Cartilage cushions and joins The most common type of cartilage is hyaline cartilage . Which covers the end  of the bones  Bones  Bone cells secrete an osteoid substance that eventually hardens and  surrounds the cells in an ossified matrix

Blood and lymph  Considered connective tissue  Fat (Adipose tissue) Cells for lipid storage  Soft network of fibers holding it together  Muscular tissue Cardiac  o muscle has short, branched, striated cells, with one nucleus at the  center of each cell Smooth o cells are short, cylindrical cells that taper at both ends and have only a  single nucleus. o They are neither striated nor under voluntary control. o These muscles manage the diameter of your blood vessels and  constrictions in the digestive tract  Skeletal  o moves your limbs and stabilizes your trunk. o This tissue is composed of long, multinucleate cells with visible  striations.

Nervous Tissue  Nerves are clusters of neurons and their projections, sheathed in connective  tissue. Neuroglia      are the supporting cells of the nervous system.   They improve  nutrient flow to the neurons, provide physical support, remove debris, and  provide electrical insulation.
