  1. Which type of Epithelial cells are glands usally associated with?
    Cuboid and sometimes Columnar
  2. What type of C.T. supports glands?
    Reticular tissue
  3. Give 2 types of Glands and describe how they differ?
    • Endocrine - Gland without ducts
    • Exocrine - Gland with Ducts
  4. What are the two layers of a Serous Membrane composed of?
    • 1. Simple Squamus Epithelial Tissue
    • 2. Areolar Connective Tissue (Subserous Fascia)
  5. What is the term for the part of serous membrane on the surface of the organ? What about about on the peripheral portion of the membrane?
