Cell Biology, Histology, and Ocular Anatomy (BSD10300)
This course provides an introduction to cell biology and the cellular components that make up tissues and determine their functions. Topics include epithelium, connective tissue, muscle, and neurons. Basic principles of organic molecules, cell biology, development, and tissue organization are covered, with an emphasis on relationships to ocular anatomy. A sub-unit of this course includes a comprehensive consideration of the gross and microscopic anatomy of the normal human eye. Laboratory sessions reinforce this material.
