The course is aimed at providing the fundamentals of human cell and tissue organization, as well as of the prenatal development of the body. The main thread of the curriculum is the relationship between morphology and function. To such aim, one of the primary goals is the development of the necessary visuospatial skills, namely the ability to recognize the structures of interest, their order of magnitude, 3D shape, and mutual spatial relationships, on the basis of histological preparations and images. Another primary goal is the development of the linguistic and expressive skills indispensable to properly communicate the acquired knowledge. The practice sessions, based on the study of virtual histological slides, play a central role in achieving the goals.
