Introduction to Anatomy

by Keith O'Malley-Farrell Matt Cotterill

Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology

  • Learn the basic structure and function of the human cell
  • Learn more about the cell, the structure and function of the cell and how the body is interconnected not just seperate individual building blocks, with Matt Cotterill


Brief overview of each of the predominant systems of the body

  • How the nervous dictates how the body moves, thinks and feels by acting as the control system of the body from the brain through the spinal cord to the peripheries and how the lungs heart and blood stream deliver nutrients around the body
  • Learn how the body regulates the health of the blood stream, fights off infection and expels infections through our lymph nodes. 
  • Learn how the endorcrine system regulates the body over all through it's glands and hormones and enables the body communicate to different areas through blood stream and nervous system.
  • Learn how the cells form together and form the system that enables us absorb nutrients from our food and liquids and links to our blood stream to deliver the nutrients.
  • How the body excretes its waste products through the urinary system and helps clean up the body's digestive process.
  • How we reap the genetic benefits of members of the opposite sex to create a new human life.


Structure of Bone and stages of Bone growth

  • How our bones are classified in relation to their structure and function, and how they develop from fetus through adolescence into young adult hood, and how they slowly deteriorate as we age.
  • Functions of The Skeletal System


Classifications of Joints

  • How each joint provides a different function but shares a common thread through its classification of its components


Classification & Components of Muscle Tissue

  • Learn the structure and function of muscles, how they contract at a cellular level with the Sliding Filament Theory explained, concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions.

 

Integumentary System

  • Learn how the skin forms our outer protective layer, the components f the integumentary system, the layers of the thick and thin skin explained and how the skin functions to absorb nutrients and excretes waste and enable us sense the environment around us and our experience with pressure temperature and pain.

Intro P2 - The Cell

Learn more about the cell, the structure and function of the cell and how the body is interconnected not just seperate individual building blocks, with Matt Cotterill

Intro P3 - The Nervous System & Cardio-Respiratory System

How the nervous dictates how the body moves, thinks and feels by acting as the control system of the body from the brain through the spinal cord to the peripheries and how the lungs heart and blood stream deliver nutrients around the body

Intro P4 - Lymphatic System & Endocrine System

Learn how the body regulates the health of the blood stream, fights off infection and expels infections through our lymph nodes. Learn how the endorcrine system regulates the body over all through it's glands and hormones and enables the body communicate to different areas through blood stream and nervous system.

Intro P5 - Digestive, Urinary & Reproductive System

Learn how the cells form together and form the system that enables us absorb nutrients from our food and liquids and links to our blood stream to deliver the nutrients. How the body excretes its waste products through the urinary system and helps clean up the body's digestive process. How we reap the genetic benefits of members of the opposite sex to create a new human life.

Intro P6 - Skeletal System

Functions of The Skeletal System and how our skeletal has evolved to protect, support, move and store nutrients for our better survival.

Intro P7 - Classification of Joints

Understanding how each joint is classified differently from their shape, congruency and articulations. From fused joints, to irregular joints to synovial joints.

Intro P8 - Muscular System

Learn the structure and function of muscles, how they contract at a cellular level with the Sliding Filament Theory explained, concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions.

Intro P9 - Integumentary System

Learn how the skin forms our outer protective layer, the components f the integumentary system, the layers of the thick and thin skin explained and how the skin functions to absorb nutrients and excretes waste and enable us sense the environment around us and our experience with pressure temperature and pain.
