  2. how are body membranes classified
    • by tissue type
    • epithelial membranes
    • connective tissue membranes
  3. What are the two types of body membranes
    • epithelial membranes
    • connective tissue membranes
  4. What are the three types of epithelial membranes
    • cutaneous
    • mucous
    • serous
  5. what is the function of the cutaneous membrane
    • dry outermost boundary
    • AKA skin
  6. name the superficial and deep layers of the cutaneous membrane
    • superficial = epidermis
    • deep = dermis

    • stratified squamous ET
    • simple columnar ET
  8. name the deep layer of the mucous membrane
    areolar CT
  9. what is the function of the mucous membrane
    moist lining, that covers all body cavities open to exterior
  10. what is the composition of serous membrane (superficial, deep)
    • layer of simple squamous ET
    • areolar CT
  11. what is the function of the serous membrane
    lines all body cavities closed to the exterior of the body
  12. what is the function of the synovial membrane
    the synovial membrane lines all fibrous capsules surrounding fluid and secretes synovial fluid which cushions and lubricates the joints
