Muscular System - Tutorials & Quizzes On Skeletal Muscle Anatomy

Anatomy and Physiology Learning Modules - CEHD - U of M Quiz Bowl and Timed Test were retired at the end of summer 2013. Quiz Bowl had always been buggy, as many people had pointed out, and it had become difficult to maintain. It also used technology that doesn’t work on a lot of newer computers or tablets. Timed test depended on a browser add-on that both Microsoft and Apple have encouraged users to remove for security concerns. For these reasons, we took these two quizzes down at the end of the month. Looking for the Image Bank? Conference for High School Anatomy and Physiology Instructors - October 17 and 18, 2014 - Minneapolis, MN. PT Education: The First Month with a New Client A New Direction Hi Team, as I promised in my first post for the year, 2010 at me-dot-com will see the introduction of some different types of articles. Today’s post is the first ever article (published on this site) written specifically for Personal Trainers (PTs), PT students, PT managers, centre managers and health club owners. Having personally completed over 40,000 PT sessions since 1987, I consider myself to have reasonable insight into what does and doesn’t work (on a range of levels) when it comes to the product and service of Personal Training. My centre in Brighton is a 10,000 square foot dedicated Personal Training Brighton facility: no members, no general training, no casual workouts, no contracts, no pressure sales and no queues for machines. When I began my PT career there was no blueprint to follow, no other PTs to learn from and no ‘How-to-PT’ guide. Back in the day (when I lived on the gym floor) my clients trained with me for an average of about three years. 1. 3. 4.

Your Lungs & Respiratory System Listen Time for Talk Your lungs are important for breathing . . . and also for talking! Above the trachea (windpipe) is the larynx (say: LAIR-inks), which is sometimes called the voice box. Across the voice box are two tiny ridges called vocal cords, which open and close to make sounds. When you exhale air from the lungs, it comes through the trachea and larynx and reaches the vocal cords. The amount of air you blow out from your lungs determines how loud a sound will be and how long you can make the sound. Experiment with different sounds and the air it takes to make them — when you giggle, you let out your breath in short bits, but when you burp, you let swallowed air in your stomach out in one long one! Love Your Lungs Your lungs are amazing. Keeping your lungs looking and feeling healthy is a smart idea, and the best way to keep your lungs pink and healthy is not to smoke. You can also show your love for your lungs by exercising!

6 Virtual Tours Of The Human Body For Free Interactive Anatomy Lessons When it comes to interactive virtual views, we have gone to space and around the globe. So, it’s not surprising that we are also going within ourselves on a virtual journey of the human body. One of the finest tools available online is Visible Body. Unfortunately, it’s not free anymore. But you can see the beauty of it thanks to the free demo that allows you to explore the head and neck. If you are disappointed that there aren’t any free interactive anatomy tools, worry not. Google Body You can trust Google to take you everywhere. The Google Body browser is a Google Labs project that renders on Google Chrome and any other browser that supports WebGL (like Firefox 4 Beta). MEDtropolis The interactive website aims to educate entertain both kids and adult on bodily health; understanding the human anatomical structure is just part of the process.

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’. – 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. Brainstem – found at the base of the brain, it forms the link between the cerebral cortex, white matter and the spinal cord. Other important areas in the brain include the basal ganglia, thalamus, hypothalamus, ventricles, limbic system, and the reticular activating system. Neurons

The 5 rules for a high-performance body by John Berardi, Ph.D. Alright, brace yourself. This lesson is a bit longer than the others, but it's also perhaps the most important. So stick with me, because we're going to cover the most critical question, namely: What is good nutrition? Do you know what types of things you have to do to look better, feel better and be healthy? What do you think it means to “eat well” or “eat healthy?” Jot down a few notes on what you think it means to eat healthy. Then take a second to think about your list. Who taught you what you know about nutrition? Perhaps you learned what you know about nutrition from parents or family – what you were told at the dinner table growing up, what comfort foods you ate. And of course, no one is immune to the influence of the media – heck, every 3rd talk show is about food and dieting. And, no doubt, you’ve probably been influenced by your past dieting efforts – whether you’ve been successful or unsuccessful. Here's the point: So let’s start from the top. The 3S Criteria
