Histology: Types of Tissues

Histology: Types of Tissues

by Geoffrey Meyer, PhD

Histology is the branch of biology that focuses on the study of living tissues. In medicine, histology is narrowed down to the study of human tissues in their normal state and is categorized based on organ systems.

Histology involves attentive and deliberate observation to understand the basic structure of tissues and develop the ability to recognize them at a glance. In this course, the student will be introduced to all tissue types in the human body, including their characteristics and how these are related to their functions. Histological techniques to prepare tissues for study will also be discussed.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry. The parallel study of relevant physiology topics is highly encouraged.

Great Professor and very good explanation!

Very good explanation, to understand from beginning!!! I was really afraid about Histology, but Dr. Meyer's explanation gave me confidence and helped me to build a solid foundation, in order to learn more info later on. Thank you, Dr. Meyer!!! You are one of my favourite lecturer! P.S. Since I've studied integrating in my study plan Lecturio"s lectures by Dr. Meyer, my grades at Histology are significally improved!

I expected more

Easy to understand, easy to assimilate! Very helpful to start Histology from zero!
