Fundamentals of Histology
- Lecture/Discussion: 3
An introduction to the study of animal cells and tissues, based on histological techniques used in light microscopy and electron microscopy, with a focus on an examination of the four basic tissue types (epithelium, connective tissue, muscle tissue, nervous tissue). In addition, the immune system, the circulatory system, the integument, and the central nervous system will be discussed as representative of the complex arrangement of tissues that form the organ systems of the animal body. The relationship between structure and function is stressed.
