To recognise various components of connective tissue and understand their functions.
- To understand the structure and functions of the cell types found in connective tissues: fibroblasts and fibrocytes, macrophages, plasma cells, mast cells, lymphocytes.
- To understand the connective tissue fiber constitution and function of reticular, elastic, areolar or loose fibrous tissue and dense fibrous tissue.
- To recognise the different types of general connective tissue, loose, dense irregular, dense regular.
- To understand the origin of tissue fluid and intercellular ground substance.
Examine the following virtual slides and identify, draw & label features and note their function.
Loose irregular connective tissue
