In this module, you will be introduced to the microanatomy of various tissues and organs of the human body. Basic structural and cellular organisation of the four main tissues (epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous tissues) will be studied, along with microscopic exploration of a number of body systems and organs.

You will acquire basic microscopic examination skills while exploring the structure and cellular organisation of a number of tissues within multiple body systems. The use of microscopes in the lab will prepare you to correlate the function of an organ with respect to its microscopic structure. You will also learn to use the Dundee Virtual Microscope as an excellent adjunct resource.
