bone joint / synostosis
__________ is a point at which adjacent bones are bound by collagen fiber that emerge from one bone, cross the space between them, snd penetrate in the other.
fibrous joint
____________ immovable joints that closely bind the bones of the skull to each other; they occue nowhere else.
______________ appears as wavy lines along which the adjoining bones firmly interlock with each other by their serrated margins, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.

_____________ occurs where two bones have overlapping beveled edges, like a milter joint in carpentry.
lap suture
____________ occurs where two bones have straight, nonoverlapping edges.
