Anatomy SeriesThis 10-part series describes the circulatory, digestive, nervous, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, reproductive, urinary, integumentary, and endocrine systems.
Using didactics, art, graphics and animation, these programs discuss normal physiology as well as pathologic processes associated with each system.
The Muscular System (2009)When we think of muscles, we might conjure images of bulging biceps, flexing hip flexors, and taut triceps, but there are actually three types of muscle tissue in the human body. Our muscles not only support us and allow us to move, but they also pump our blood and move food through our digestive system.
Introduction to Anatomy and PhysiologyFrom the tiniest cells to the largest organ systems, the human body is a complex organism that is capable of both power and grace. When we think of a ballerina, we might conjure images of grace and fluidity. But such elegance relies upon the strength and power of the structures within the body. When we study the human body, we have to ask ourselves not only "How is it structured?" but also "Why does it work that way?" The human body's form and function are both complementary and interrelated - they compromise in many ways. These are questions that you should ask yourself in every lesson - the relation between form and function is a central theme throughout this film.
