5 True/False questions
Osteocytes → Mature bone cells found within the matrix in tiny cavities called lacunae.
Synarthroses/fibrous joint → an immovable joint
Lacunae → Concentric rings/circles made up of groups of hollow tubes of bone matrix that the lacunae are arranged in.
Dislocation → process of bone formation that involves two major phases. First, hyaline cartilage model is covered with bone matrix and then the cartilage is digested away opening a medullary cavity within the newly formed bone.
Ankylosis → When the scar tissue eventually ossifies, and the bone ends become firmly fused.
