  26. What is a main difference between dense CT proper and cartilage?
    no blood flow in cartilage
  27. What are lacunae?
    Small cavities in bone or cartilage (firm matrix) occupied by cells.
  28. Another name for RBC? Do they have nuclei?
    erythrocytes; no
  29. Another name for WBC? Do they have nuclei?
    leukocytes; yes
  30. What are 3 types of covering membranes? How are they similar? Different?
    • 1. cutaneous (skin)
    • 2. mucous (line body cavities; exposed to outside)
    • 3. serous (double layer)
  31. Nervous tissue is composed of two cell types. What are they?
    • -neurons
    • -supporting (glial) cells
