Connective Tissue Development
Connective tissues in the body region have a mesoderm origin, while in the head region neural crest also contributes to these tissues.
Blood is a liquid connective tissue (More? Blood Development).
- Loose and dense connective tissue
- Reticular connective tissue
- Adipose Tissue
- Mesenchymal connective tissue
