COURSE TITLE: Graduate Course in Human Cell Biology and Microscopic Anatomy
CODE NUMBER: ANAT 8504
Admission to the Department of Anatomy & Neurobiology Graduate Program or prior authorization by the Director of the Department and the course Coordinator, and basic knowledge on the use of computers, software and the internet .
Through lectures, group discussion and laboratory, the student will receive an introduction on: (1) the structure and function of the cell; and (2) the microscopic anatomy of human tissues and organs as visualized with light and electron microscopy. Emphasis will be placed on correlating the arrangement and structure of component cells with the function and physiology of the tissue/organ. After completion of the course a student should have: (1) knowledge of the normal microscopic structure of the cells, tissues, and organs of the human body; and (2) the ability to correlate structure and function in cells, tissues, and organs at both light and electron microscopic levels. The structured time of the course consists of lectures, group discussions and laboratory. It is expected the students will also spend time on independent study.
