Bone Tissue

Bone Tissue

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD

Bones are active organs. Aside from their role in providing structural support, they help to permit movement, allow muscles to contract, protect organs, serve as a factory for the production of blood cells, and help to regulate homeostasis. The compact hard outer layer of bone, as well as its cancellous (spongy inner) layers, give it structure and strength. The delicate balance between osteoblasts (bone-forming cells) and osteoclasts, which break down bone, is responsible for maintaining bone tissue.

Introduction to the Structure of Bones: Histology
By Shane D. on 25. August 2023 for Structure of Bones

Super helpful introduction and outline of future lectures. I appreciate the integrated instructions surrounding structure, location, function, and particular roles within the body. These lectures are helpful supplements to textbook readings.

Immature Bone: Helpful but Lacking Resource
By Shane D. on 25. August 2023 for Immature Bone

While this was certainly a helpful lecture with breaking down differences between mature versus immature bone, not revealing the labeled diagram could prove detrimental to student learning. I noticed when quizzing myself that stronger learning might be taking place, but ultimately, I am not sure if everyone myself included could fully and adequately label every structure on this histological slide. Could you provide these diagrams with labels if they are not already somewhere? My histology atlas displays images differently.

Niesseria Meningitis

Explanation excellent, diagrams excellent ????. However, the use of a pointer would be beneficial

Bone formation
By Yibo W. on 17. September 2021 for Bone Tissue

The lecture on bone formation is not comprehensive and not very easy to digest The photos given by the lecturer is not very good in terms of illustrating the main concepts Having said all these, I recognise that making such lecture series is no easy task and the efforts put in by all staffs are commendable
