AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To know structure, organization and function of different human tissues and morphological-functional characteristics of cells that compose them.

Teaching methods

Classroom teaching lessons.

It is possible that the method of conducting the lessons will change due to emergency situations that prevent the performance of the lessons in attendance. In this case the lessons will be carried out through the Teams IT platform. 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The plasma membrane: Structure and functions. Membrane transports. Endocytosis and esocytosis.

The cytoplasm:

Hyaloplasm

Ribosomes

Rough-surfaced endoplasmic reticulum (RER)

Smooth-surfaced endoplasmic reticulum (REL)

Golgi apparatus

Lysosomes

Peroxisomes

Mitochondria

The cytoskeleton

Cell junctional complexes

The nucleous

The nucleolus 

Cell cycle and mitosis 

TISSUES:

Epithelial tissue:

Main characteristics of epithelia

Lining epithelia: organization and classification

Structural surface differentiations of epithelial cells (microvilli, stereocilia, cilia)

Secretory epithelia:

•  exocrine glands

• endocrine glands

Connective tissue:

Extracellular matrix:

•   fibers

•   ground substance

Cell components of connective tissue

Connective tissue proper

Support connective tissue: cartilage and bone tissue

Ossification

Trophic connective tissue: blood and lymph

Lymphatic tissue

Cells of the innate and adaptive immune system

Muscle tissue:

• striated skeletal and cardiac muscle

• smooth muscle tissue

Myofibril structure and muscle contraction

Nerve tissue:

• neurons

EXAMS

Exam description

During the lessons an ongoing test is carried out to evaluate the level of acquisition of the first contents held in classroom and concerning the cytology.

The oral exam is aimed at evaluating the learning of knowledge related to the topics illustrated and discussed in classroom and the ability to integrate and contextualise this knowledge.

Assessment methods

1. The choice of the examination method allows to verify the acquisition of the knowledge inserted in the training objectives.
2. The oral test that is the examination methods used and that includes most of the program carried out allows to better evaluate how the student orients himself in the entire tissue scenario addressed in class, allowing also to evaluate his reasoning skills. aimed at associating structural notions with functional concepts.
It is possible that emergency situations prevent the students to taking part in the examination in attendance for the final evaluation. In this case, the Teams IT platform will be used.
