Human Anatomy Series

I have finished my quest of creating articles on everything I have learned from my first Human Anatomy class.  There are now 50 links below that strategically tie the content like a table of contents.  The order this is presented in it the way I was taught, and it makes a lot of sense that way.

Anatomy versus Physiology, What’s the Difference?

Here’s an analogy that might help:  Instead of the human body, imagine you were going to learn how a car works.  First you would be taught what all the parts are called, what they look like and where they go.  That’s Anatomy.  After you have been acquainted with what everything looks like, then you could learn what they do and how they function all together with the other parts.  That’s Physiology.

The Basics.  Start here.  This is your Foundation.

What systems are missing?

The bones and blood vessels are incomplete, and it’s missing the joints, the digestive system (e.g. stomach, intestine, liver, gallbladder, pancreas), the ear and male/female reproductive system.

If I get around to filling these in, I will add them to this list, but as of right now, I’m making sure the ones I have already are in tip-top shape. Be sure to share this page with your fellow anatomy class peers!  Let me know if you would like me to continue the series so I know you exist.
