- To know the histological features and functions of the oral cavity and its associated structures.
- To know the general organization of the alimentary tract and the histological features of its various anatomical subdivisions: oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, small intestine, large intestine, appendix and rectum.
- To know the microanatomy of the tongue, including epithelial types, muscles, glands, papillae and taste buds.
- To know the histological features of the submandibular and parotid glands.
- To know the general architecture of the wall of the alimentary tract and the functions of the mucosa, submucosa, muscle layer and serosal or adventitial layer in the various anatomical divisions of the canal.
- To know the structure of the oesophagus, cardio-oesophageal junction and stomach wall.
- To identify the cells of gastric epithelium and distinguish the histological features of the cardiac, body and pyloric regions of stomach. To appreciate the role of mucous on the surface of gastric epithelium.
- To know the histological features of the duodenum and ileum, including villi, intestinal mucosal glands (crypts of Lieberkuhn), lymphatic tissue and intramural nerve plexuses.
- To know the structure of the large intestine, appendix and rectum.
Mouth, oesophagus & stomach
Note: The lip and soft palate have already been studied and will not be repeated here. You are reminded however, that they are part of the oral structure.
