Study Guide, Exam 1
Human Anatomy, Fall 2008
This study guide is not intended to replace your lecture notes
. It is just a
list of topics so that you’ll know if you missed some information somewhere.
Topic 1, Introduction (Chapt. 1):
Definitions of anatomy and histology.
Levels of study: chemical - cellular - tissues - organs – systems. Examples of all levels.
Techniques for determining problems (e.g., MRI), their uses, good and bad sides.
Topic 2, Tissues (Chapt. 4):
Be able to define a tissue, know the general form and function of each tissue type (main 4),
be able to give a function of each subtype and components (if covered in class).
Epithelial tissue (epithelium) = covering and lining.
General physical characteristics of epithelium and functional ramifications for them,
naming epithelial tissues.
Subtypes = simple squamous, simple cuboidal, simple columnar, pseudostratified,
stratified squamous and transitional – where are they and what do they do?
Connective tissue – connects and protects.
Commonalities of connective tissues – derivation, cell types and matrix.
Subtypes = areolar, adipose, reticular, dense regular, dense irregular, hyaline cartilage,
bone and blood – what are their components, functions, locations.
Muscles (contract). Subtypes = skeletal, cardiac and smooth – where are they and what
