This CD-ROM with accompanying manual will introduce medical, allied health, and undergraduate students to the logic of anatomical thinking and the microscopic structure of the body's tissues. Its correlation of low power with high power views, the quality of its images, and the ease of using the CD will be particularly attractive features. It is not a full electronic atlas with hyperlinks of pictures to text but rather a review of morphology that supplements the history lab where students look through a microscope at slides of tissue specimens.show more
