Aim of the course
The purpose of Histology and Embryology course is to provide information about morphology of human organs and development of human being. Histology and Embryology are two related sciences. Histology is the study of microstructures of the human body and their functions; it is divided into general histology that studies the cell and extracellular matrix of the four basic types of tissue, and special histology that studies microscopic anatomy of various organs. The Embryology will explain prenatal development of human organism and is divided into general embryology that studies the development of germ cells, fertilization and early development of human embryo, and special embryology that studies formation and malformation of organs. Besides classroom lectures and seminars, the course includes laboratory practices, where morphology is studied in histological slides under light microscope.
