Ch.12 Nervous Tissue-final Exam Quiz

The nervous tissue is a large part of the tissues of that makes up the central nervous system. It mainly consists of two main groups of cells, which are the neurons and the neuroglia. With the final exam almost upon us it is important to ensure that we get a head on our revision and stand a better chance of passing. Take the quiz below on the nervous tissue and be on your way to passing it.
