Teaching language



Basic Histology and Embryology aims at providing knowledge about the normal structure, both microscopic and submicroscopic, of the main tissues composing biological organisms, as well as about the embryological and post-natal development of the main organs and systems.
The morphology should be perceived as the structural basis of physiology, not only to increase the motivation for the study of the form, but, more importantly, also to provide a better understanding of how morphological changes can lead to functional changes and vice-versa.
