Course unit content

In the first part of the course of histology will be developed structural and functional aspects of living matter and its method of aggregation to form cells. Later you will learn how structural and functional aspects of the different cells, with reference to the organs and systems of their animal cell (cell Suburbs, cytoplasmic matrix, cytoskeleton, organs responsible for synthesis, organs responsible for degradation organs of energy, nucleus). In the second part of the course will analyze the structural and functional aspects of the tissues and their mode of aggregation on form multi tissue units and organs.
