The course will provide students the necessary skills to understand the functional complexity of the human organism and the relationship between organ's microscopic anatomy and its function. The student should be able to acquire correct anatomical terminology and develop interpretative skills.
The specific training objectives of the discipline include:
The purpose of the Histology module is to provide the student with adequate skills on histogenesis processes, familiarity in the laboratory with various methodological procedures, including histochemistry and immuno-histochemistry, suitable for the study of cellular and subcellular structures under the light microscope.
lectures and exercises on lab bench
Should teaching be carried out in mixed mode or remotely, it may be necessary to introduce changes with respect to previous statements, in line with the programme planned and outlined in the syllabus.
Lectures and exercises. If the teaching is given in a mixed or remote way, the necessary changes with respect to what was previously stated may be introduced, in order to respect the program envisaged and reported in the syllabus.
Basic knowledge and of organs microscopic structure of the folowing apparatus:
Organ's preparation methods for microscopic analysis
-Techniques for the study of histology: optical microscopy. Techniques for the preparation of histological materials for observation. Importance of cell shape and size. Strategies for the recognition of the epithelial lining tissues, properly called connective tissue, under an optical microscope; cartilage (hyaline, fibrous and elastic); bone tissue (non-lamellar and spongy and compact lamellar; tooth: cement and dentin; direct and indirect ossification, blood and lymphatic tissue, preparation of a smear on a slide and recognition of the main cellular populations of blood; muscle tissue and nervous tissue.
