Histology is one of the basic fields of medicine which deals with the structure of a human body that can be studied only by using the optical or similar devices. Histology also deals with the cell (cytology) and with the fine structure of some organs (microscopic anatomy), i.e. the histology encompasses the entire microscopic and sub-microscopic system of the organism. Nowadays, histology (cytophysiology, histophysiology) cannot even be envisioned without the synchronous topo-chemical research (cytochemistry and histochemistry). Thus students gain insight into understanding of the chemical components of the cell, i.e., of their positioning in the cell, and the way in which their molecules are being synthesized. By using the electron microscope we are entering the macromolecular research area which is common to the cytomorphology and histomorphology, chemistry, biochemistry and physiology. Usage of the radioactive isotopes, microspectography, fluorescent microscopy, molecular genetics etc., helps us to both gather the data of the light microscopy, and to encompass in a broader way the insights of the general histology following the ultrastructural data. Human embryology is still descriptive in a certain sense, but the employment of the results in the comparative and experimental embryology contributed to the causative understanding of the complex occurrences during the development of human embryo.
