If a student is curious about the wondrous structure he or she inhabits, the study of histology can be fascinating. To make it exciting, we have included state of the art images from the work of scientists world-wide that elucidate not only structure but functions of cells and tissues. We have combined their pictures, which encompass a wide variety of imaging modalities and techniques (transmission and scanning electron micrographs, immunocytochemistry, histochemistry, confocal and dark field microscopy) with our own work and our teaching library of light micrographs to create an atlas that we think will help students integrate cellular structure with both the functions and biochemical properties of cells.
Current technologies used to create the images in this atlas are also used for laboratory investigation and clinical diagnosis. Introducing students, through this book, to the use of a multimedia approach to histology should help them develop better interpretive skills, inspire independent, original thinking about problem solving with microscopic material, and establish continuity between early class work and eventual professional practice.
The progression of information from cell to tissue to organ is arranged in chapters, each of which begins with a brief introduction or overview of the material contained therein. Within chapters, images are collected into "mini-lectures," groups of micrographs concerned with a single structure that examine it in different ways. Groupings are arranged on facing pages, which allows the student to compare and contrast structure and function. Legends are, for the most part, concise, and directly adjacent to the image being described for easy access. For pictures that are borrowed, the reader is referred to a list of contributors at the end of the text.
