The Visible Human Project – a guy on death row had his body donated to science and it was sliced up so can reconstruct it 3 dimensionally. Finding your way around the body Planes o Sagittal plane – bilateral bisection through the body (right down the middle) is called the mid-sagittal plane. – Slice down the midline o Frontal plane – separates front from back o Transverse plane – separates top from bottom Oto|rhino|laryng|ology ear|nose|throat|study of Major regions of the body o Axial region – central axis of the body, includes: Head Neck Trunk region/ torso o Appendicular region – extremities (arms, legs) Directional Terms o Superior vs. Inferior – up vs. down o Cranial vs. Caudal – cranium vs. tail o Anterior vs. Posterior – directionality of body – intestines are anterior to spinal cord, toes are anterior to heels. Front vs. back o Ventral vs. Dorsal (anterior, posterior), front vs. back o Medial vs. Lateral vs. Intermediate Medial – closer to midline Lateral – further from midline Intermediate – anything in-between two things, the heart is intermediate to the lungs Ears are lateral to the eyes o Proximal vs. Distal Relation to the axial portion of the body Knees are proximal to the toes (closer to the axial region, elbow is distal to shoulder) Appendicular parts of body. o Superficial vs. Deep Hair is superficial to the skull, skin is superficial to bone, brain is deep to skull For Quadrapeds back

Anterior (cranial) head tail Posterior (caudal) bottom Ventral Textbook picture pg. 14-15 – useful reference but wont be tested on it Memorize Table 1.1 on pg. 15 Viscera of the body are contained within body cavities o Dorsal Cavity ( back of body) – contains central nervous system, brain, spinal cord Cranial cavity – brain Spinal cavity – spinal cord o Ventral Cavity Thoracic cavity – superior section – everything inside ribcage Subdivided into 4 cavities separated by membranes o Pleural Cavity – contain lungs o Mediastinum pericardial cavity – completely surrounds heart superior mediastinum – trachea, esophagus Abdominopelvic cavity – inferior, (cavity) - abdomen and pelvis Abdominal and pelvic separated by membrane – peritoneal cavity – intestine o Abdominal – peritoneal cavity o Pelvic Principles of Body Organization and Function – *know these* Structure and function are intimately linked o Anatomy studies the structure of body parts and their physical relationships o Physiology studies the function of body parts and their functional relationships
