Book Description: Students who study with the ATLAS OF FUNCTIONAL HISTOLOGY obtain the most lifelike learning of tissues and organs. It features 600 realistic color histology sections and 150 electron micrographs. Each figure has a detailed caption outlining the structures and their function to the system or body as a whole. The book is organized by body system, each chapter beginning with an introduction of that system and its function. To help students assess their skills, a unique self-testing section asks them to differentiate between tissues of similar appearance through the use of multiple choice questions. Detailed rationale on each option of the multiple-choice questions helps them understand the differences in function of similar looking tissue. After using the atlas, students will be able to quickly and correctly identify histology sections and discuss the structures in relation to body function.Presents the highest quality set of histology images ever published for medical students, so students realistically see on paper exactly what they would see down the microscope. Includes clinical correlations to make histology clinically relevant and much more interesting for students. Provides comprehensive captions telling students which structures they need to recognize and explaining the function of these structures. Provides unique "Lookalikes" feature, which allows students to test themselves by differentiating between similar looking tissues from different origins.
