Homework: Membranes & Fasciae
1- Mucous Membrane- It’s any of the membranes lining in the passages of the body that open to the outside. This includes the digestive,respiratory, urinary and reproductive tracks in the body. The connective tissue portion of a mucous membrane is called the lamina propria but other examples of other tissues are the stratified squamousepithelium, which covers the mucous membranes of the mouth, and the transitional epithelium, covering the mucous membranes of the urinary tract.
2- Cutaneous Membrane- Also known as skin,covers the surface of the body giving protection to the inner organs. It consists of stratified squamous epithelium and the underlying connective tissues also known as areolar tissues.
3-Synovial Membrane- It contains a synovial fluid with areolar tissues which helps lubricate and protect joints permitting smooth movement. 
1- Superficial Fasciae- Is found immediatelybeneath the integument over almost the entire surface of the body. It connects the skin with the deep fascia, and consists of fibro-areolar tissue that permits that the skin and the tissue work intheir separate ways.
2- Deep Fasciae- Consist of a dense irregular connective tissue. Its main function is to keep in forms sheaths for nerves and vessels, forms or strengthens ligamentsaround joints, envelops various organs and glands, and binds all structures together into a firm compact mass.
3- Subserous Fasciae- Subserous main goal is to protect and avoid any damages in theserous membrane with an areolar tissue. It’s located between the inner layer of the deep fascia and the serous membranes that line body cavities. In some areas it is thin, and between the pleuraand chest wall, and in other areas is thick, forming a fat pad.
