5. Gross anatomy “macroscopic anatomy”: Structure & relationships of body parts that are visible (intestines, stomach, brain, heart) Regional: the structure in a particular region (ex. Armpit, axillary artery, vein, lymph nodes) Systemic anatomy: studied anatomy of each functional system (urinary system, skeletal, muscular) Surface anatomy: focuses on superficial and internal body structures that relate to the skin covering them (finding pule location) 6. Microscopic anatomy: cannot be seen by the unaided eye. Cytology: study of cells and their internal structure Histology: study of tissue Embryology (developmental anatomy): the discipline concerned with developmental changes occurring from conception to birth. *to study anatomy, one must know the structure and form 7. physiology: function of various organ systems (molecular and cellular level) must have knowledge of chemistry and cells. the discipline of physiology parallels anatomy because it also is very broad and may be subdivided into smaller groups -cardiovascular physiology examines the functioning of the heart, blood vessels, and blood – how the heart pumps the blood) -neurophysiology: examines how nerve impulses travel throughout the nervous system -respiratory physiology studies how respiratory gases are transferred by gas exchange between the lungs and the blood vessels -reproductive phys: explores how the regulation of reproductive hormones can drive the reproductive cycle and influence sex cell production and maturation.

    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.
