Anatomical terms of motion

Flexion and extension are examples of angular motions, in which two axes of a joint are brought closer together or moved further apart. Rotational motion may occur at other joints, for example the shoulder, and are described as internal or external. Other terms, such as elevation and depression, refer to movement above or below the horizontal plane. Many anatomical terms derive from Latin terms with the same meaning. Classification[edit] Anatomical terms of location. Standard anatomical terms of location deal unambiguously with the anatomy of animals, including humans.

Furthermore, the terms are not language-specific, so with little or no translation, they can be understood by all zoologists. While these terms are standardized within specific fields of biology, there are unavoidable, sometimes dramatic, differences between some disciplines. For example, differences in terminology remain a problem that, to some extent, still separates the terminology of human anatomy from that used in the study of various other zoological categories.

Terminologia Anatomica

It was developed by the Federative Committee on Anatomical Terminology (FCAT) and the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA) and was released in 1998.[1] It supersedes the previous standard, Nomina Anatomica.[2] Terminologia Anatomica contains terminology for about 7500 human gross (macroscopic) anatomical structures.[3] In April 2011, Terminologia Anatomica was published online by the Federative International Programme on Anatomical Terminologies (FIPAT), the successor of FCAT. Categories of anatomical structures[edit] The TA divides anatomical structures into the following main categories (Latin standard in parentheses) : A01: General anatomy (anatomia generalis)[edit] General terms (anatomia generalissima) [1] A02: Bones (ossa)[edit] General terms [2]
