Bone Tissue

Bone Tissue

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD

Bones are active organs. Aside from their role in providing structural support, they help to permit movement, allow muscles to contract, protect organs, serve as a factory for the production of blood cells, and help to regulate homeostasis. The compact hard outer layer of bone, as well as its cancellous (spongy inner) layers, give it structure and strength. The delicate balance between osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and osteoclasts, which break down bone, is responsible for maintaining bone tissue.

Bone formation
By Yibo W. on 17. September 2021 for Bone Tissue

The lecture on bone formation is not comprehensive and not very easy to digest The photos given by the lecturer is not very good in terms of illustrating the main concepts Having said all these, I recognise that making such lecture series is no easy task and the efforts put in by all staffs are commendable
