Introduction to Human Anatomy

Learn about your body with this lecture delivered by Professor John K. Young on the axial skeleton of the human. Professor Young starts the lecture with some definitions of basic human anatomy terms. He then proceeds to cover the axial skeleton of a human starting with the cranium and proceeding down the spinal cord with many interesting tidbits along the way. Professor Young proves that studying human anatomy doesn't require diagrams as we have our own human anatomical specimen right at our fingertips. He points out many of the bones along the way which you can touch while listening (just keep one hand on the wheel if you're driving!).

Basic Human Anatomy: The Beauty of Form and Function

The structures that lie beneath our skin represent a remarkable and beautiful assortment of biological machines essential for our lives. Often, however, we take these structures for granted; it is only when we become ill that we wonder how the body functions and what has gone wrong.

In these fourteen fascinating lectures from Howard University's Professor John K. Young, a basic overview of the human body, its physical features, biological systems, and general functioning will be presented for the benefit of anyone from budding medical students to curious laymen. Before Professor Young begins to describe the structure and function of the body, he introduces the basics of anatomical terminology. Without a knowledge of these terms, the names of muscles and bones would be completely incomprehensible.

A component of biology, morphology is the scientific study of the form and structure of living organisms - and human anatomy is the branch of morphology that looks at the structure of the human body. Human anatomy is made up of gross anatomy (structures that can be studied with the naked eye) and microscopic anatomy (the tiny structures that can only be examined under the scrutiny of a microscope). The complementary sciences of histology, cytology, physiology, and biochemistry may also be briefly summarized in support of this course. Our bodies rely on a host of complex biological systems that allow us to survive. Each of these systems employs the functioning of our major organs. These organs - including skin (our largest organ), heart, lungs, brain, kidneys, liver, pancreas, spleen, intestines, bones, bladder, and eyes - in turn, are made of tissues, and the various types of tissue in the human body are composed of cells.

As Professor Young illustrates in this course, our bodies are amazing machines that, for example, can perform such marvelous feats as fully repairing themselves after sustaining injury. Professor Young has taught human anatomy for thirty years and has collected many fascinating and little-known stories about the body. In his lectures, he shares the knowledge he has gained during his tenure as a teacher as he leads his audience on an unforgettable journey through the wonders of the human body.
