The WVU Neurobiology and Anatomy Department has developed a virtual microscopy web site that features a bank of digitized whole slide histological specimens that permits the user to scan and manipulate magnification in a zoom-like fashion. Rather than viewing isolated images, the virtual microscope offers a more progressive and engaging mode of teaching that preserves the interpretive and diagnostic aspects of traditional microscopy.
