Lab 1: Nervous Tissue Histology
This web site reproduces Lab1: Nervous Tissue Histology
from the Lab Manual for CVM 6120 Veterinary Neurobiology.
The site was established to display lab images in color.
Neurohistology Lab Objectives:
    A. Identify neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymal cells in the CNS.
    B. Identify axons, myelin, and lemmocytes associated with nerves and ganglia in the PNS.
    C. Be able to distinquish white matter (collections of myelinated axons) from gray matter
        (accumulations of neuronal cell bodies) in the CNS.
    D. Be able to identify dura mater, arachnoid, subarachnoid space, and pia matter.
    E. Be able to define the following terms:
     1. multipolar neuron        2. bipolar neuron
     3. unipolar neuron        4. perikaryon
     5. Nissl substance        6. axon
     7. dendrite        8. telodendria
