Giving students a needed ally in learning the difficult concepts in cell biology and histology is the singular goal of this concise text. In typical Basic Concepts fashion, the subject is treated with maximum emphasis on demystifying basic science topics using analogy, charts and algorithms, clinical examples, mnemonics and other proven teaching methods. Organized from simple to more complicated concepts, students will enjoy the uniquely lucid review of cell biology including cell membranes, intracellular trafficking, signal conduction, mitosis and meiosis, cell motility, and more. Histology is also reviewed starting with epithelium and junctional complexes, connective tissue, muscle, and a system-by-system review of cell structure
