Module04 Lab Worksheet: Skeletal Muscle Dissection Introduction This week’s lab will focus on studying the gross anatomy and identification of fetal pig skeletal muscle, along the identification of human muscles. Objectives Objectives for this week’s lab include: 1) Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of specimen dissection, 2) Label the gross anatomy of fetal pig skeletal muscles, and3) Identify specific muscles of the fetal pig and Homo sapiens (humans). Overview This week’s lecture content explores skeletal muscle characteristics, properties and anatomy. However, this week’s laboratory assignment will include the dissection of skeletal muscles on a fetal pig. A number of muscles and muscle groups on the pig correspond very closely to the anatomy and location on humans; your dissection will be useful in learning the characteristics, identification and location of the same or similar muscles on a human. For the mid-term and/or final laboratory examinations, you will have to identify pictures of specific muscles on a dissected pig and/or human cadaver. Over the next three laboratory classes, you will be performing a variety of dissections. During this laboratory session you’ll start the dissection process by removing the skin and working on separating and identifying skeletal muscles of the head/neck, chest, abdominal, shoulder/back and upper arm regions of the pig. Module 05 laboratory session will include work on separating and identifying skeletal muscles of the hip, upper and lower leg regions along with dissecting various joints of the pigspecimen. Module 06 laboratory session will allow you to review your dissections and work on separating any muscles and/or dissections you didn’t complete in the previous laboratory sessions. You will work in groups of 3-4 classmates for these dissections, will use the same fetal pig specimen through Anatomy and Physiology I and II, so be mindful of how your treat your pig specimen, especially when you store it when the laboratory session is complete. Make sure you mark your names on the storage container.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
