Laney College



Below are pics of the tissues that Human Anatomy and Human Physiology students are required to learn in my classes.  In some cases, a tissue is represented at different magnifications.  These are meant as ONE study tool for the tissues – for example, you could download the files to make your own flashcards.  Further information about the tissues and how to recognize them is presented in class.  Many thanks to the two students who took the photos for the benefit of all students:  Brenda Covarrubias and Donna Ozawa.

For the best view, open in a new tab (generally a right-click or two-finger click depending on your device) or download the file.
