Histology lectures to watch: Histology 1, 2 and 3

Videos:

This Khan Academy video explains various cell junctions, such as tight junctions (like glue between cells and watertight – kidney, bladder …), desmosomes, allow water and ions through but cells held together in places of stress – kidneys, intenstines, and gap junctions, like a tunnel between cells allowing cellular components to flow from cell to cell (heart – intercalated disks).

This video by Dr. John Campbell describes exocrine and endocrine glands. Exocrine are ducted glands and usually multicellular, such as salivary, mammary, and sweat glands. Some, such as a goblet cell is one cell but as with all exocrine glands secretes substances to a surface. Endocrine glands, on the other hand, produce endocrine products (chemical messengers) and release them in the blood where they will reach a target cell with specific receptors for particular products. This may trigger a second messenger system, and produce a metabolic reaction in the target cell.

This Khan Academy video explains the inflammatory response – redness, swelling, heat and pain. Mucus and skin are the first defenders. If penetrated, injured cells release chemicals which activates a chain reaction involving white blood cells, antibodies, histamine, and other players.

This video by Dr. John Campbell discusses regeneration of tissue, through mitosis and migration tissue is replaced without injury. If there is an injury, the epidermis is very good at healing, often not leaving a scar. Bone heals well, and the liver regenerates (not with chronic insults however). Kidney endothelial cells can heal, but not whole nephrons are glomeruli. Lungs regenerate well, but not if continual injury due to smoking for example, then fibrosis occurs. Nerve cells don’t regenerate (except olfactory and peripheral nerves – but very slowly – 1mm/month).

Here are answer keys to the video questions for junctions, inflammatory response and glands.

Chapter 1 lecture: introduction to anatomy and physiology; history of medicine. You can find the lecture and a summary under the Biol 1120 tab.

Today I will lecture in person. In future, I will be assigning lectures to watch in advance.

Lectures are on my playlist: lecture playlist

Videos: 1) human body systems

2) vaccines,

3) leeches

The videos will have short questions to answer.


Week 1 Day 2 – Thursday January 6 2022

Watch 1120 Ch1 parts 2-5 before 11:30 a.m.: lecture playlist

Class will start on zoom at 11:30.

Videos: 1) human body systems

Lab: Orientation lab. This lab is about terminology describing direction and areas of the body. For example, supine (facing upwards), and epigastric region (one of 9 regions).

Please download the lab here. In class we will watch this YouTube video to learn terminology for anatomical orientation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u7WXfp35FWk

And this YouTube for abdominal quadrants and regions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oeFoxTi02yg

Answer key for the orientation lab (excluding dental terms – won’t be tested) will be posted here in one week.

For future labs, you should get the lab manual (or you can download it below), and the colouring book from the bookstore:

https://broadway.store.vcc.ca

You can also download the entire lab manual here:
