Page Contents

  • The pages use pop-up windows and javacsript . Make sure that they are not disabled in your browser if you want to use functions which need them .

  • Each page begins with a table of contents which lists the topics, lab guides and images contained in the page.

  • Next is the Additional Resources section, which lists ... well ... additional resources which are available on this site and which are relevant to the page content. This section allows the opening of multiple browser windows, which is nice if you like to use multiple resources concurrently and which also is an excellent chance to completely clutter your desktop - be tidy ... at least try.

  • Individual lab sections begin with a short list of Suitable Slides and stains. One or more of them should be available in teaching slide collections. I have only included slides that I have looked at - other sections and/or stains may be available in the collection that you can access.

       Some images are tagged with a yellow dog ear in their upper right corner.

When you "click" these images you should see an alternate image of the tissue - either different labels or a different stain or different details.

  • Occasionally you will find this icon in the text:
    It links to an electron microscopic picture of the features mentioned in the text.

  • How good the images will look like may depend on your display. Does it need to be adjusted?

  • A few pages still need some brushing up ...
