Study Notes

Bone Tissue Functions

  • Bone tissue provides support, protection, and movement

Types of Bones

  • There are four main types of bones: long, short, flat, and irregular bones

Long Bone Structure

  • The diaphysis is the correct term for the shaft of a long bone
  • The growth plate, or metaphysis, is the area between the epiphysis and diaphysis in growing bones

Cartilage and Bone Membranes

  • Articular cartilage reduces friction between bones at joints
  • The endosteum is the membrane that lines the medullary cavity
  • The periosteum is the membrane that covers bones

Bone Development and Remodeling

  • Osteogenesis is the correct term for the process of bone formation
  • Osteoremodeling is the correct term for the process of bone remodeling
