From Cells to Organs: A Histology Textbook and Atlas

Front Cover
Springer Science & Business Media, 2003 - Medical - 322 pages
Histology is the study of the microscopic structure of cells, tissues, and organs. It has often been taught as a matter of memorization. Dr. Van Lommel's approach is based on the understanding that the microscopic structure of the body has a logic, and the text and accompanying images are organized to proceed according to a rigorous logic, expanding from the anatomy and morphology to discuss the functions of the various kinds of cells, tissues, and organs. The material is thus more interesting and, as an extension of that, easier to remember. CD-ROM included.
