Résumé d'Introduction to functional histology (2° ed )

This state-of-the-art textbook was the first in microscopic anatomy designed to interface with a videodisc. Now in its second edition, this award-winning book continues to offer undergraduate and graduate students a complete introduction to histology.

New to this Edition

This second edition includes information on a number of new topics, including: histogenesis, endocytosis, expanded discussion of intermediate filaments, histophysiology of glands, discussion of hemal nodes, embryonic development of skin, fetal cortex of the adrenal gland, expanded discussion of sertoli cell and blood supply of endometrium, the development of the reticular membrane of the eye, and a look at the latest microscopes such as the atomic force microscope, the high voltage electron microscope, and the confocal laser scanning microscope.

The authors have introduced insightful new Clinical Comments boxed inserts and a Glossary.

Commentaire d'Introduction to functional histology (2° ed )

  • Clean, readable design with full-color presentation of the circulatory system and of hemopoiesis. Line art is always positioned with the text it accompanies, providing ease of reference.
  • A 48-page full-color atlas featuring histological look alikes that show students how to discern between seemingly identical cell and tissue types.
  • Unique to this text is a detailed 500-item glossary of terms that defines difficult terminology.
