technicalstuff The Technical Stuff icon flags extra information that takes your understanding of anatomy or physiology to a slightly deeper level, but the text isn’t essential for understanding the organ system under discussion. From complicated Latin names to what can seem like a million-and-one things to memorize, no one's saying anatomy and physiology is easy. It’s possible that, not many years from now, almost no one will understand what people mean by those words. Basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology gets you started when trying to make sense of the news about epidemics, novel drugs and medical devices, and purported environmental hazards, to name just a few examples. Obvious details of anatomy (the presence or absence of bright green tissue) and physiology (the presence or absence of movement) tell that story.

Learn about the human body from the inside out Some people think that knowing about what goes on inside the human body can sap life of its mystery?Camm is the Inmar Presidential Chair in Analytics and the Academic Director of the Center for Analytics Impact at the Wake Forest University School of Business. Part I introduces the basics of human anatomy and physiology: the fundamental concepts of organismal biology and cell biology, some elementary terminology, and some hints about the scope and utility of anatomical and physiological knowledge. You need to pass an exam or otherwise demonstrate understanding and retention of data, terminology, and concepts in human anatomy and physiology.

Just as a dental cavity is a hole in a tooth, the body’s cavities are holes where organs are held (see Figure 1-3). The human species has one other variety, Homo sapiens neanderthalensis, which has been extinct for tens of thousands of years. Whether you′re an aspiring health–care or fitness professional or you′re dealing with serious illness, having a basic knowledge of the human body is a must. It’s entirely within the norms of evolutionary theory that people would be most interested in their own specie-alties, so more humans find human anatomy and physiology more interesting than the anatomy and physiology of the alga. Anatomy and Physiology For Dummies, 2nd Edition, appeals to students and life-learners alike, as a course supplement or simply as a guide to this intriguing field of science.It takes more than just reading this book to comprehend what you are reading, the reader must take initiative to learn more. For example, telling a young boy that he has the same density of hair follicles on his body as a chimp does will probably please him. Data Duped guides readers to discern the differences between the plausible and the ridiculous along a journey of informed critical thinking and data literacy. This book is very helpful and suitable for anyone that wants to find a stimulating way to learn about our body.

In contrast, scientific Greek and Latin stopped changing centuries ago: ilio, hypo, and gastro have the same meaning now as they did 200 years ago.You also need to be familiar with standard anatomical terms, as well as the various planes, cavities, and organ systems that make up the physical form. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. Terms that people use in common speech are understood slightly differently by different people, and the meanings are always undergoing change. When the book arrived, a quick scan-through suggested that it took more of a scientific approach than a highly illustrated A-Z of the Human Body that I had previously read.
