The courses of instruction in anatomy are given in Berkeley. The classes in gross anatomy are divided into small groups in order to avoid the inevitable noise and disturbance which result from a large group of students working together. Material for dissection is prepared in the embalming room, which is equipped with the necessary hydraulic apparatus to inject both the embalming Auids and the color masses for the arteries and veins in any desired pressure. After this process is completed the bodies are preserved in a carbolic solution.

The teaching museum consists of specially prepared corrosions, injec. tions, dissections, and models.

The laboratory for microscopic anatomy is outfitted with microtomes and is supplied with all the stains and reagents necessary for the ordinary and finer methods of microscopic preparation.

The routine work of the department falls into the natural divisions of gross and microscopic anatomy, and some effort is made to have the transition between the two as gradual as possible. Inasmuch as the process of formal education must end sooner or later, the department endeavors as far as possible to make the students entirely independent. This is further encouraged in the elective system, by which a certain amount of selection is allowed in the regular work of the department.

MICROSCOPIC ANATOMY The various tissues and organs of the body are studied from the developmental point of view so that their gradual differentiation from the embryonic to the adult form is taken up. Since function and structure can not be separated in the consideration of the microscopic appearance of tissues and organs, their chief physiological aspects are briefly con

sidered. The study of each group consists of three main steps: (1) For the purpose of orientation, the consideration of their macroscopic appearances, relations, and physiology. (2) The transition from the macroscopic to the microscopic conditions is made with the dissecting microscope and teasing methods, free hand or frozen sections. (3) The more detailed study is made from specimens prepared by methods designed to emphasize their principal microscopic features. In this course the value of comparing the organs of a series of animals is recognized and the student is given numerous comparative specimens.

101. Histology and Microscopic Organology.

Dr. SMITH and Mr. HURNI.

In this course are considered the anatomy of the cell, its variations

in form, the conditions and processes of its proliferation, and the modifications which result in its differentiation into a cell of specialized type. The formation of the embryonic germ layers is then taken up and followed by a detailed study of the different fundamental tissues of the body, as these are composed of cells and cell products and derived from one or the other of the germ layers. The study is always comparative. The organs are discussed with reference to their form, arrangement, and the number of the fundamental tissues composing them, with special reference to their structural and functional relations to other organs. In each case the students begin their study with the structures in situ, and special effort is made to bridge the gap between the ap

pearance of the organs in gross and under the microscope. First year, first semester, 3 laboratory periods, 3 lectures a week. M W, 8-12; F, 8–11; S, 11-12.

103. Neurology and the Sense Organs. Assistant Professor HARVEY. In this course special attention is paid to the macroscopic and micro

scopic architecture of the central nervous system and the organs of special sense. The neurone studied in course 101 is used as the unit in the construction of the nervous system with a view of tracing the origin, development, and final arrangement of the different pathways for nerve impulses. Considerable attention is given to the consideration of the growth and development of the nervous

system. First year, second semester. F, 8-9 and 1-5.

3 units.
