The word "histology" comes from the Greek "histo" meaning tissue and "logos" meaning treatise. In practice, histology studies the form, structure, and appearance of animal and plant tissue under a microscope, as opposed to gross anatomy that involves observing structures with the naked eye. A device called a microtome is used to cut thin slices of tissue, after which the slices are normally stained to help elucidate structure.
