Electron microscopic atlas of tissues and organs Department of Histology and Embryology – Faculty of Medicine, Masaryk UniversityMUDr. Jana Dumková


It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words.

I would add that, in my opinion, this is especially true for good picture and that studying morphology without any images is not possible.

We do not have to learn by heart, just good observation is enough; we only add some new terms which are already invented.

Therefore be studying, looking carefully, and admiring the beauty of the images which we have thanks to electron microscopy.

Every cell or its part will tell you everything about itself.

Most images are taken from the organs of animals - laboratory mouse (Mus musculus) or laboratory rat (Rattus norvegicus), some specimens are extracted from human tissues; than they are labeled with letter H as Human.
