14 (A) The collagen molecules, manufactured in the fibroblast and secreted into the intercellular space, are polarized so that they orient themselves along the line of tension and create a strap to resist that tension. In a tendon, almost all fibers line up in rows like soldiers. ) (B) If there is no 'prevailing' tension, the fibers orient willy-nilly, as in felt. (Reproduced from Kessel RG, Kardon RH. WH Freeman & Co. ) conditions that re-impinge on local conditions in an unending recursive process.

But the connective tissue net extends into the dorsal and ventral cavities as well, to surround and invest the organs. ) If we could lift the perineural system intact from the body, it would show the exact outline of the nervous system, as every nerve, both central and peripheral, is covered or surrounded by this system of the perineurium. These coatings speed neural signal transmission (myelinated fibers transmit faster than unmyelinated fibers).

7 The fascial matrix of the lower leg (of a rat), showing the histological continuity among synergistic and even antagonistic muscles. This 3-D reconstruction, using three frozen sections of the anterior and lateral crural compartments, enhances the connective tissue structures within each section. The smallest divisions are the endomysial fibers which surround each muscle fiber. The 'divisions' between these muscles - so sharp in our anatomy texts - are only barely discernable.
