Unit 1 Objectives 1) Provide a definition for the terms "anatomy" and "physiology". Anatomy refers to the scientific structure of an object. Also means to cut apart or dissect. Physiology refers to the scientific study of the function of an object. Also means the study of nature. 2) Describe how knowledge of anatomy was important for early man. The knowledge of anatomy was important for early man because it helped them to survive by knowing which vital organs to pierce while killing prey. 3) Describe some of the major contributions to the science of anatomy that the early Egyptians, Greek philosophers, Romans, Renaissance and contemporary scientists provided. Major contributions to anatomy of the Egyptians, Greeks, Roman, Renaissance and contemporary scientists include; mummification, discovering that diseases cause death (not displeased gods) and the way the heart worked. They also started using cadavers and discovered that the brain is the "powerhouse" of intelligence. Very accurate and detailed sketches of the human body where made. Flow of blood through the heart was accurately described. In 1830, the cell theory was proposed by scientists Schleiden and Schwann. 4) Describe the "anatomical" position. The anatomical position is standing tall facing forward, feet together facing forward,palms facing forward and thumbs facing outwards away from the sides. 5) Identify and name all the body regions using both common and scientific terms.
