Laboratory 46. Male Reproductive System

Laboratory 47. Female Reproductive System

 

 

In Laboratory 46, you will learn about the male reproductive system's components and functions. It covers the primary organs associated with the male reproductive structures, their functions, and the histology of the testes and penis. You will learn about how and where sperm is made, as well as how it travels through the male body. The primary structures discussed are the testes, sperm, the epididymis, the spermatic cord, and the penis. This lab will also contain a dissection of a sheep testis.

At the end of this lab you should be able to locate, label, and the explain the functions of the primary components of the male reproductive system, as well as associated glands. You should know the primary functions of the male reproductive system and how those functions are accomplished. Under a microscope, you should be able to recognize what structure you are looking at and point out all parts listed on the notebook checklist. On the dissection, you should be able to identify the tunica albuginea, the testis, the spermatic cord, the ductus deferens, and the epididymis. You should be able to trace the creation and path of sperm from the testis to the glans penis, including the transition from spermatogonium to spermatid.

In Laboratory 47, you learn about the female reproductive system's components and functions. It discusses in detail the ovaries, the production and maturation of oocytes, the menstrual cycle, the histology of the uterus, and the primary components of the system.  It discusses the ovaries, the uterus, the associated ligaments, the vagina, the vulva, and the breasts. You will learn about how hormones regulate and control the ovarian and menstrual cycles, and what parts of ovulation occur when in the cycle.

At the end of this lab, you should be able to locate, label, and explain the functions of all discussed portions of the female reproductive system. You should know the primary functions of the female reproductive systems and how those functions are carried out. You should be able to describe the maturation of the oocytes in the ovary, as well as how the movement of oocytes is tied to the menstrual cycle. You should be able to discuss, in detail, the hormones involved in the menstrual cycle and how they affect it. Under a microscope, you should be able to identify the part of the female reproductive system being examined and all structures listed on the notebook checklist.
