Learning objectives

The target of the course is to allow the student to know and to understand the essential elements of the tissues and organs structure. The student will utilize knowledge and understanding for Anatomy and Physiology future study.
At the end of the course the student will demonstrate knowledge and understanding about: Cell structute and organization, Tissue structure and organization, Multi tissutal units structure and organization, taking care the stomatognathic apparatus



Course unit content

In the first part of the course will be summarized the functional and structural aspects of different tissues, referring in particular to the stomatognathic apparatus; in particular will be analyzed tooth and parodontal tissues. In the second part of the course will be analyzed the firs four week of the embryonic development, and the tooth development.
