Welcome to Microscopic Anatomy as presented by the faculty in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology in the College of Medicine of the S.U.N.Y. Upstate Medical University. Microscopic Anatomy, also known as histology, is the study of the structure of the tissues of the human body and how they are constructed into functioning organs. The Microscopic Anatomy course is aligned by organ system with the Mammalian Physiology course. This allows the study of the structure and function of normal organs in a coordinated way that aids understanding of the workings of the human body.
The purpose of this site is to provide the student with information to supplement and reinforce the lecture and laboratory experience. High quality digital images from the course's glass slide collection as well as self-testing materials and useful links may be found here. The study of this discipline is very visual, and students will find that different combinations of microscope, kodachrome, and web use will suit their individual needs in developing a knowledge base and understanding of Microscopic Anatomy.
