Nicole Pierce Dr. Ethan Anderson Structure and Function of the Human Body 09 July 2014 Anatomy according to The Oxford Companion to the body ( Colin Blakemore and Sheila Jennett, 2001 ) is defined as the science of the structure of a body learned by dissection. Put simply it’s the study of the body and it’s parts(Ologies and -Isms. 1986). Physiology according to The Columbia Encyclopedia (6th edition, 2013) is the study of the normal function of animal and plants during life and of the activities by which life is maintained and transmitted. The study of physiology usually is undertaken along with anatomy to completely understand physiology of the human body, you will have to develop a complete understanding of anatomy of the human body. An example would be, you can’t understand how we breathe without understanding how the lungs work by pulling oxygen from the air we breathe without understanding that the lung is made up of a bronchial tree and alveoli, in turn allows for the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide.

    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.
