Gray, Henry. 1918. Anatomy of the Human Body Introduction Anatomical Bibliography I. Embryology Bibliography II. III. IV. V. VI. VII. VIII. IX. X. XI. XII. Brain Atlas - Introduction The central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and the spinal cord, immersed in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Weighing about 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms), the brain consists of three main structures: the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brainstem. Cerebrum - divided into two hemispheres (left and right), each consists of four lobes (frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal). The outer layer of the brain is known as the cerebral cortex or the ‘grey matter’. It covers the nuclei deep within the cerebral hemisphere e.g. the basal ganglia; the structure called the thalamus, and the ‘white matter’, which consists mostly of myelinated axons. – closely packed neuron cell bodies form the grey matter of the brain. Cerebellum – responsible for psychomotor function, the cerebellum co-ordinates sensory input from the inner ear and the muscles to provide accurate control of position and movement. Basal Ganglia Thalamus and Hypothalamus Ventricles Limbic System Reticular Activating System Neurons Glia
Student Nurse - A&P Anatomy and Sectional Terminology It sounds silly, but you learn as many new words in an A&P course as you do a beginning foreign language course. Really --there's been research to prove it! - Kevin Patton Links here are for general A & P resources.

The Human Body: An Online Tour The human body is the most fascinating and fantastic machine in existence. No one understands all of its many mysteries; and no single source can do justice to its many parts. This week, Education World tours the Web to find the best "human body" sites. You won't believe what we discovered! Included: Sites for all ages. Do your students know that more than half the bones in the human body are in the hands and feet? Those are just a few of the fascinating facts we discovered while visiting the sites below. The Virtual Body includes interesting information about the brain, the digestive system, the heart, and the skeleton in a highly interactive format. Slightly older students will enjoy a visit to BodyQuest, a fun-filled and informative exploration of the human body intended for students age 11 and above. Human Anatomy Online is a fascinating and fact-filled tour of the human body for students in middle school and above. Math. Science. Word Search. ABC Order. More science. Vocabulary.

These animations are intended to support text or lecture and it is important that they are not seen as stand-alone reference material. Notes: If you or your students discover any factual errors in the animations please let me know: email@example.com Some of the animations can only be accessed from the university network - please contact Liz Hodgson in the LDU if you would like them on WebCT so that students can access them externally. Here are some animations of organs/organ systems: Cranial nerves (No text version) Cranial nerves (Customised version)) Anatomical directions and sections.
