AbstractPractical at the light microscope based on the lectures "Anatomie" 1+2 with an introduction in histological techniques. In the first part participants study examples of epithelia, connective and supporting tissues, muscle and nervous tissue. The second part is devoted to the microscopic anatomy of selected organs.
ObjectiveBy working with the microscope, participants gain a deeper understating of the lecture topics, in particular in microscopic anatomy. They acquire the ability to examine tissue sections with the microscope, to recognize organ-typical structures and to identify the organ of origin.
