Histology is the microscopic study of tissues and cells used in understanding the pathogenesis and diagnosis of various diseases cells are the tiny living units that form the tissues organs and structures within the body all cells contain cytoplasm are surrounded by a membrane and contain a variety of structures and organelles. Notes and terms from the histology chapter of anatomy and physiology 1 learn with flashcards games and more for free search living tissues for diagnostic purposes what are the functional characteristics of cuboidal and columnar epithelium. A tissue is a group of cells in close proximity organized to perform one or more specific functions there are four basic tissue types defined by their morphology and function epithelial tissue connective tissue muscle tissue and nervous tissue. Since histology is a visual subject high quality images of cells and tissues are vital as a component of course material in this book concise text relates the structures seen in the images to biological function and integrates clinical relevance by describing how the histology of tissues is affected in abnormal conditions. This is an exciting period in histology for we are now able to explore the physiological and molecular basis of biological structures through the development of techniques that allow us to examine the chemical make up of living tissues under the microscope
