Study Notes

Anatomy and Physiology

  • The main focus of anatomy is the study of the form and structure of organisms.
  • The branch of biology that deals with the form and structure of organisms is anatomy.
  • Anatomy has subdivisions, including regional anatomy, which looks at all structures in a particular area of the body.
  • Another subdivision is systemic anatomy, which looks at just one system (cardiovascular, nervous, muscular, etc.).
  • Gross or macroscopic anatomy focuses on the study of body structures that can be seen with the naked eye.

Physiology

  • Physiology primarily deals with the study of the function of body parts and how they work to carry out life-sustaining activities.
  • The main focus of physiology is the study of the function of body parts and how they work to carry out life-sustaining activities.
  • A subdivision of physiology often focuses on cellular and molecular levels of the body.
  • To study physiology, one must understand anatomy.

Other Key Concepts

  • Cytology refers to the study of cells.
  • Histology refers to the study of tissues.
  • Organs are the level of structural organization that contains two or more types of tissues.
  • The blood is responsible for the transport and delivery of oxygen to other body tissues.
  • The principle that states function always reflects structure is a fundamental concept in anatomy and physiology.
  • Surface anatomy looks at internal structures as they relate to overlying skin, such as visible muscle masses or veins seen on the surface.
  • To study anatomy, one must know and be able to identify and describe the structure and organization of the human body.
  • Learning and understanding anatomical terminology is important because it provides a common language for communication and helps to accurately describe and identify structures.

Test your knowledge on the orientation of the human body with this quiz based on the eleventh edition of 'Human Anatomy & Physiology' by Karen Dunbar Kareiva. The quiz covers important concepts related to the structure and organization of the human body.
