Dense CT -Dense regular: Bundles of collagen fibers running a few elastic fibers. It attaches muscles to bones or to muscles with strength. It is located in the tendons, the ligaments, and the aponeuroses. - Dense irregular: Mostly irregularly arranged collagen fibers. It will withstand tension exerted in many directions and it provides structural strength. It is located in the fibrous capsules of organs and joints, dermis of the skin, submucosa of digestive tract. - Elastic: It contains high proportions of elastic fibers. It allows tissue to tremble after stretching. It is located in walls of large arteries and the walls of bronchial tubes. •Cartilage: Features between dense CT and bone, they are tough but flexible. They are made 80% of water. Lacks nerve fibers and is avascular. Ground substance contain a lot of the glycosaminoglycans (GAG) chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid. Contains collagen fibers and elastic fibers. •Bone: Support and protects body structures. Provides cavities for storing fat and synthesizing blood cells. Osteoblasts produce the organic portion of the matrix, and then bone salts (calcium salt) are deposited on and between the fibers. •Blood: Consists of cells (red/white) surrounded by a nonliving fluid matrix, blood plasma. It is the transport vehicle for the cardiovascular system, carrying nutrients, wastes, respiratory gases. 2. muscle (Provides movement) 3. connective tissue (Supports and protects body organs) 4. nervous tissue (Provides a fast-internal communication by transmitting electrical impulses)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
