What connects epithelial and connective tissue?
The basement membrane is a form of extracellular matrix which underlies all epithelia. It is a structural support for epithelia, and forms a mechanical link between epithelia underlying connective tissues. Through integrins, epithelial cells communicate with the basement membrane along their basal surfaces.

What type of connective tissue is found between the ribs and sternum?
The costal cartilages, which are bars of hyaline chon cartilage that extend the ribs forward and increase the elasticity of the thorax walls, are called The medial extension of the ribs is provided by the costal cartilage, which is located at the anterior ends.
Are all cranial nerves mixed?
Five cranial nerves are responsible for sensory, motor, and parasympathetic functions. We will discuss these five nerves in greater detail. The mixed cranial nerves include CN III Occulomotor and CN V Trigeminal.
Which cranial nerve is the only one that extends beyond the head and neck?
Cranial nerves are the 12 nerves of the peripheral nervous system that innervate the structures of the head and neck. The only cranial nerve to innervate structures beyond the neck and head is the vagus nerve (CN X).
Is the vagus nerve sensory or motor?
The vagus nerve (cranial nervous [CN] X]) is the longest cranial neuron in the body. It contains both motor and sensory functions in the afferent as well as the efferent regards.
