The scentific discipline that studies the function of the body structures.
the study of single body cells and their internal structures.
The study of tissues.
A vertical plane that divides the body into anterior and posterior parts.
A plan that cuts perpendicularly along the long axis of the body or organ.
A plane that extends through the body’s midline.
A vertical plane that divides structures into left and right halves.
A minor plane that passes through the specimen at an angle.
In front of; toward the surface
In back of; toward the back surface
At the back side of the human body
At the belly side of the human body
Toward the head or above
Toward feet not head
At the rear or tail end
At the head end
Toward the midline of the body
Away from the midline of the body
On the inside, underneath another structure
On the outside
Closest to point of attachment to trunk
Furthest from point of attachment to trunk
Consists of the head, neck, and trunk and forms the main vertical axis of our body
Term for the limbs that attach to the trunk.
Formed by the cranium and houses the brain
Cavity that is formed by the individual bones of the vertebral column and contains the spinal cord
Cavity that houses the Central Nervous System (Cranial Cavity and Vertebral canal)
General Cavity that consists of the Thoracic cavity and the abdominopelvic cavity
Cavity that consists of the abdominal and pelvic cavities(Inferior).
A muscular partition that develops between the thracic and abdominopelvic cavities
The area that lies between the parietal and viseral layers of the serous membrane that contains a lubricating film of serous fluid that is secreted by the cells of the serous membranes.
The thin layer of a serous membrane that lines the internal surface of the body wall.
The thin layer of the serous membrane that covers the external surface of organs within the cavity.
The superior body cavity that is contained in the ventral cavity.
Region inferior to the thorax and superior to the hip bones
Region in front of the elbow
Heel of the foot
Fingers or toes (Also called phalangeal)
Posterior base of the head
Posterior of the elbow
Palm of the hand
Region betweenthe anus and teh external reproductive organs
Sole of the foot
Area posterior to the knee
Anterior region of the pelvis
Posterior region between the hip bones
Middle of the thorax, anteriority
Chest or thorax
The median space in the thoracic cavity that contains the heart, thymus, esophagus, trachea, and major blood vessels that connect the heart.
A two-layered serous membrane that encases the heard.
the outermost layer of the serous membrane that forms a sac around the heart.
The layer of the serous membrane that is actually considered the external surface of the heart.
the potential space between teh parietal and visceral pericardia; it also contains serous fluid
The narrow, moist, potential space between the parietal and visceral plurae and is the location of the lubrication serous fluid.
The two-layered serous membrane that lines the lungs.
The outer layer of the serous membrane that lines the internal surface of the thoracic wall.
the inner layer of the serous membrane that covers the external surface of the lung.
The moist, two-layered serous membrane that lines the abdominopelvic cavity.
The outer layer of the serous membrane that lines the internal walls of the abdominopelvic cavity.
The inner layer of the serous membrane that ensheathes the external layer of most digestive organs.
