Histology is a visual science that assesses the anatomical characteristics and the functional states of cells and tissues — histology is also known as human microscopic anatomy, and also as dynamic morphology. In Stevens & Lowe’s Human Histology, clinical relevance is stressed in order to provide the reader a feel for the mechanisms of disease. Graphic material, in the form of electron microscopy and light microscopy photographs, is well-suited to an understanding of the function of fundamental cellular components. The text material is well organized and very readable.
The course is divided into two sections, each worth 12 hours.
Section A: Basic histology; The cell; Epithelial cells; Support cells and the extracellular matrix; Contractile cells; Nervous tissue; Blood cells; Immune system; Blood and lymphatic circulation and heart; Respiratory system.
Section B: Alimentary tract; Liver; Musculoskeletal system; Endocrine system; Male reproductive system; Female reproductive system; Skin and breast; Special senses (ear and eye).
