This note is designed to
familiarize the student with the organs of the human body on both the micro- and
macroscopic levels. At the completion of this note the student should understand
the basic anatomical organization of the human body including the relative
position of various organs, systems and tissues. Some information about organ
system functions will also be included.
This note is accomplished through a study of
the organization of the body’s systems from a microscopic level of organization
to the gross anatomy level. In addition, the relationship between structure and
function will be examined through the study of histological slides, photomicrographs, anatomical models and charts, mammalian (cat) dissection, and
human cadaver demonstration.
is a fundamental science that studies the structure of the human body from
ancient times. Over time, the discipline constantly expands with recent progress
that has been produced in researching the human body. So, new methods of
researching were incorporated in the anatomy development: plastic materials
injections, plastination, computed techniques of sectional bodies, and
embryology.Topics covered includes: Innovative Technologies for Medical
Education, Anatomical Correlation of the Arterial Blood Supply to the Spinal
Cord in Human and Experimental Animals, Human Brain Anatomy, Cardiac Anatomy for
the Electrophysiologist with Emphasis on the Left Atrium and Pulmonary Veins,
Anatomical, Biological, and Surgical Features of Basal Ganglia, Mesencephalon,
This book explains the anatomy of the following arteries of the human
body: The aorta, The arteries of the head and neck, The arteries of the upper
extremity, The arteries of the trunk, The arteries of the lower extremity.
The lecture note provides a thorough review of human anatomy and physiology applicable to the nurses. It covers all
body parts using a systemic approach. Topics covered includes: Cell, Tissues and Membrane, The Integumentary System, The Skeletal System, The Muscular System, The Nervous
System, The Endocrine System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Digestive System, The Urinary System, Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, The

To study the human body in the dissecting laboratory is an unique opportunity. The
dissection laboratory provides an environment in which the senses of touch and
sight can be used to enhance one's understanding of the human body. It is
the intent of this dissection manual to provide a means to facilitate the
learning of human anatomy. The creation of this dissection manual, and the
computer software program with the collection of videodisc images which
accompany it, were developed by a team of individuals who place high value on
Dr Roisin Kelly-Laubscher, Lecturer in Anatomy and Physiology, University of Cape
Town. The Upper Limb Wiki was created in 2010 as part of an Anatomy and Physiology
class project for 1st year Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy students at
the University of Cape Town.
This is human
anatomy textbook originally written by Henry Gray. Earlier editions were called
Anatomy: Descriptive and Surgical, but the book's name is commonly shortened to,
and later editions are titled, Gray's Anatomy. The book is widely regarded as an
extremely influential work on the subject, and has continued to be revised and
republished from its initial publication in 1858 to the present day.
book Atlas of human Anatomy is aimed at promoting an understanding of the structure
and function of cells, tissues, and organs as viewed under light microscopy.
This database has an extensive encyclopedia, complete with images and videos,
and a unique section on the anatomy of first aid.
