Tissues in the Body - A Virtual Lab

Introduction

Tissues determine what functions a structure can perform in the body. Many different healthcare providers use tissues to identify illness and disease. These amazing cells are best viewed through a microscope using stains. Since we do not have those we will be viewing online prepared slides. 

Task

Your task will be to view and take notes on different tissues 

Process

You will be using http://www.histologyguide.com/ 

On the home page you will need to click on the slide box tab at the top. Click on Chapter 2 Epithelium. Read the information at the top of the page. Click on the image to see the different types of tissues. (Fig 008) click the back button. Sketch each tissue type and take notes in your notebook. Click on the common bile duct (MHS 261) Click on the blue blood vessels link. Look at the blood vessels lined with simple squamous cells. If you click on the image it will enlarge. Click on (MHS 281) pavement epithelium write a short description of this tissue in your notebook. Click on the (MHS 224) Ovary and Oviduct image. If you continue to click on the image until you can see individual cells you will see the cuboidal shape of the cells. 

For the remainder of the epithelial tissues please choose 1 structure to view and take notes on them in your notebook.  

Click on the back button and you should be on the home page again. Click on Chapter 3 Connective Tissue. Take notes on the information at the top in your notebook. Click on fig.(024) Types of Connective Tissue and take notes on the types and characteristics of connective tissues in your notebook.  Click on (MH 078) Lymph Node image. Observe the collagen and reticular fibers and write a description of what you see in your notebook.  

For the remainder of the connective tissues please choose 1 structure to view and take notes on them in your notebook.
