Histology is the study of
cells, tissues and organs as seen through the microscope. Although this atlas is
a guide to biological structure that can be observed through the light
microscope, histology also includes cellular detail down to the molecular level
that can be observed using an electron microscope. This PDF atlas covers the
following topics related to Histology : Introduction and Cell, Epithelium,
Connective tissue, Muscle tissue, Cartilage and Bone , Nerve tissue, Peripheral
blood , Hematopoesis, Cardiovascular System, Lymphoid system , Skin, Exocrine
glands, Endocrine glands, Gastrointestinal Tract, Liver and Gall Bladder ,
Urinary System, Respiratory System, Female Reproductive System, Male
Reproductive System, Organs of Special Sense.
Main goal of this note is to explain the basic concepts and
principles that govern the basic structure and function of each tissue. This
note will cover the microscopic anatomy of the basic tissues that comprise the
the human body, which are: epithelial tissues, connective tissues, including
blood, cartilage, and bone, muscle tissues, nerve tissues.
