1

a point of contact between two bones, between bone and cartilage, or between bone and teeth.

Joint, also called an articulation or arthrosis

2

The scientific study of joints

arthrology

3

The study of motion of the human body is called?

kinesiology

4

There is no synovial cavity, and the bones are held together by dense irregular connective tissue that is rich in collagen fibers

Fibrous joint

5

There is no synovial cavity, and the bones are held together by cartilage.

Cartilaginous joints

6

The bones forming the joint have a synovial cavity and are united by the dense irregular connective tissue of an articular capsule, and often by accessory ligaments

Synovial joints

7

An immovable joint.

Synarthrosis

8

A slightly movable joint.

Amphiarthrosis

9

freely movable joint.

Diarthrosis

10

The three types of fibrous joints are

sutures, syndesmoses, and interosseous membranes.

11

An immovable fibrous joint that joins skull bones.

Suture

12

A joint in which the dense fibrous connective tissue that unites bones at a suture has been replaced by bone, resulting in a complete fusion across the suture line.

Synostosis

13

A fibrous joint in which a cone-shaped peg fits into a socket.

Gomphosis

14

A slightly movable joint in which articulating bones are united by fibrous connective tissue.

Syndesmosis

15

a substantial sheet of dense irregular connective tissue that binds neighboring long bones and permits slight movement

Interosseous membrane

16

is a cartilaginous joint in which the connecting material is hyaline cartilage.

synchondrosis

17

A cartilaginous joint in which the ends of the articulating bones are covered with hyaline cartilage, but a broad, flat disc of fibrocartilage connects the bones.

symphysis
