This atlas provides undergraduate medical students with an understanding of
the histological structures of various tissues and functional correlation.
Beginning with an introduction to histology, microscopy and tissue preparation for microscopy, the following chapters illustrate histological aspects of different tissues (epithelial, connective, muscular and nervous), in different systems of the body.
Each chapter concludes with a table summarising the microscopic structure of organs in the relevant system, and their function. The final chapter presents sample histology slides to enhance learning.
Highly illustrated with nearly 340 clinical images and tables, the book also includes multiple choice and descriptive questions to assist revision.
