Oral Histology and Embryology & General Histology - Embryology

AIM

To teach students: a) the basic histological techniques for the study of cell morphology at the level of the optic microscopy, b) the basic structure and function of the cell and the histological characteristics of the major human tissues and c) the principles of early and late embryonic growth and of the congenital dysplasias.
