Synopsis

This unit provides students with basic knowledge of the structure of the human body. It describes how tissues are combined to form organs, and how organs and organ systems are organized to form adult body structure. The microscopic and macroscopic structure of the major organs and organ systems are covered, including the cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, urinary, reproductive and nervous systems. Imaging modalities for examining the body are described including X-ray, CT, and MRI. The general body plan is described and how the body plan is established during embryogenesis is discussed.

Objectives

On completion of this unit students will: understand the general structure of the human body; understand the microscopic and macroscopic structure of organs and organ systems; appreciate what structural information can be obtained with CT and MRI; understand how the general body plan is established in the embryo; have a basic understanding of limb development and limb regeneration.
