Connective tissue is one of the many basic types of animal tissue, along with epithelial tissue, muscle tissue, and nervous tissue. In embryology it develops from the mesoderm. Connective tissue is found in between other tissues everywhere in the body, including the nervous system. The three outer membranes that envelop the brain and spinal cord are composed of dense inert connective tissue. All connective tissue consists of three main components: fibers, ground substance and cells. Not all authorities include blood or lymph as connective tissue because they lack the fiber component. All are immersed in the body water. The cells of connective tissue include fibroblasts, adipocytes, macrophages, mast cells and leucocytes.   Wikipedia
