Goals
Describe histology and introduce routine histological techniques. Define the structure of the cell. Explain the general histological structures of epithelial, connective and support tissues, and muscle and nerve tissues. Aim of this course is to give information about male and female reproductive systems, structural and functional relations of cells, developmental stages and features from fertilization to birth, instances that occur during this period and their mechanisms.
