Home / Histology


The study of histology is essential for learning the microscopic structure of organisms, tissues and organs both in health and disease.

Currently tissue knowledge, in addition to being useful for histophysiology and diagnosis, has become the basis for the development of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.

This section has been organized as two different Virtual Histology Practice:

  • The first is dedicated to the study of Tissues (epithelial, connective, muscular and nervous).
  • The second is dedicated to the histology of Organs.

These virtual practices, especially the histology of organs, are oriented to the human species. However, given the challenges to obtain human samples in good conservation conditions, samples from different animals have been used, as long as the histological structure of their organs were similar and representative to that of humans.
