Composed of fibres. Certain membranes, as the dura mater, periosteum, ligamentous capsules of the joints, &c., are fibrous. The fibrous system of Bichat includes the system of organs formed by the albugineous fibre of Chanssier. It comprises, particularly, the periosteum and perichondrium; the articular capsules and ligaments; the tendons; the dura mater, pericardium, tunica sclerotica, tunica albuginea testis, outer membrane of the spleen, &c. Under simple fibrous tissues, Telae fibrosae, certain writers have classed the white and yellow fibrous tissues, and areolar tissue. Both the yellow and the white may be detected in the areolar tissue. The white is said to exist alone in ligaments, tendons, fibrous membranes, aponeuroses, &c. The yellow, (F.) Tissu jaune, exists separately in the middle coat of the arteries, the chordae vocales, ligamentum nuchae of quadrupeds, &c. It differs from the white in possessing a high degree of elasticity, owing to the presence of a distinct principle, called by MM. Robin and Verdeil, elasticine.
