This session introduces the study of anatomy and physiology. By definition, anatomy is the study of internal and external structure. Physiology is the study of how living organisms perform the various functions of life. Many important concepts are introduced in chapter one, including, an introduction to the organ systems, body sections, body regions and body cavities and significance of homeostasis. The chapter ends with an introduction to anatomical landmarks and directional references. This is a BUSY SESSION, BUT you have many tools which will aide your successful learning. You must choose a system that works and launch into your study each day. You will find additional help outside your text at the prenhall website, EAP CD(E, D, G) (NOTE: You may find it easier to just run the CD from your computer.). (Click Start, Run, Browse for your CD. Select Start_EAP3e_CD from the files displayed.), ADAM Interactive Anatomy (LRC Lab). PLEASE NOTE: The website is NOT for your textbook, but the content is identical (human body is a human body is a ...) so the activities will be the same.
The goal of this chapter is to learn and apply the organization and language of the human body.
NOTE: The PLATES listed in your lab assignment refer to the dissection guide that you purchased in your course pack
The PAGE numbers in the lab section indicate assignments from the Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomy book
Notice on the schedule that you are to read the first chapter of your text book and first chapter of your Lab book this week. Do that before attempting this assignment.
Understanding Anatomic Terminology is "critical" to your success
1. Make a SUPERFICIAL MIDSAGITTAL INCISION on the ventral surface beginning a what you perceive to be the umbilicus and proceed inferiorly to the base of your stalk.
2. Make a DEEP TRANSVERSE INCISION on the dorsal surface near the superior end of the stalk of the celery.
3. Enter at the LATERAL surface and make a complete FRONTAL/CORONAL sectional cut beginning at the mid-point and proceed inferiorly.
4. Make a COMPLETE MEDIAL NOTCH on the inferior end near the base of the stalk of celery
Return to the course schedule
The text material has great potential to help you learn the many components of anatomy and Physiology:
Review the quizzes
and most importantly, Labeling exercises:
Textbook: Read the objectives. Use them as a guide when you
skim read the chapter to get a feel for the content and how the different topics are related
reread the chapter look for the critical points and preparing for lecture
study the chapter to learn the critical content
review the chapter preparing for the quizzes and exams
Lecture: Attend all lectures. Use them to
identify important points
ask questions of points not well understood in the text
measure your learning comprehension
Lab: Attend your scheduled lab and take
advantage of open times to continue to study
Use your labs to correlate text structures to actual specimens in lab
Please NOTE: When you click on the link, you will be asked what you want to do with the program. Select RUN if using Netscape or OPEN if using Internet Explorer. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. You may find it easier to just run the CD from your computer. (Click Start, Run, Browse for your CD. Select Start_EAP3e_CD from the files displayed. Once the CD is running, Select the current chapter from the Main menu. Do the exercises, animations, and tests that you think will best help you master the material.
You may find the glossary helpful for terminology understanding
You should go to the LRC to use A.D.A.M. Interactive Physiology. You will find tutorials there very helpful for understanding the human body and how it works.
