Lecture (2 hours), laboratory (4 hours). Introduction to microscopical anatomy of normal tissues and organs with emphasis on the interrelationship of structure and function.
1. Identify all major tissue types found in the human (mammalian) body. You will not only be able to identify these tissues in a classic “textbook” orientation, but be able to identify them cut at various angles (oblique, tangential), as well. 2. Identify sections of all major organs of the human (mammalian) body. In addition, you will gain extensive knowledge of the functioning of these organs. 3. Identify things under the microscope that should not be there. We call these “artifacts” and they are often due to poor fixation or preparation of the tissues when the slide is being made. For example, bubbles may appear during preparation, or the tissue may be scratched. Most importantly, during tissue processing a certain degree of tissue shrinkage occurs, so that spaces appear that would not be present in the living animal. You will be able to clearly identify such artifacts and not misinterpret them as “real” structures.
