INFORMATION FOR ANATOMY STUDENTS:

 

       Blackboard Website (http://blackboard.miracosta.edu/) available only to students enrolled in my sections of Human Anatomy (Bio 210);

for all of your information regarding the course, announcements, assignments, schedules, discussion board, etc.

      

       Links to Photomicrographs: available to all interested parties; on this website you will find photos of many of the histology slides that you will be studying this semester. Please click on one of the links directly below. Remember that slides and microscopes are also available at each library for review. They may be checked out at the front desk for use in the library at OC & SEC.

       LINKS TO PHOTOGRAPHS OF ANATOMY MODELS:

Available to all interested parties; these are photographs of models and bones that we maintain in our Anatomy labs at MiraCosta College. If you attend another college that does not have these particular models, they will still be of use to you. They will provide you with a novel perspective, testing your ability to orient yourself, locate recognizable landmarks and identify structures that are typically tested in an introductory Human Anatomy course.

Instructions: Click on any of the organ-system links below to see a list and thumbnail pix of the available photos. Then click on the link of the photo that you want to study. Most of the images are mapped, so if you move & hold your cursor over an anatomical structure (or in some cases a given number) the identity of that structure will be exhibited on your screen. (If the identity does not show up, try clicking on the image once to activate the image mapping feature.)

1.      SKELETAL SYSTEM & ARTICULATIONS

2.      INTEGUMENTARY SYSTEM

3.      MUSCULAR SYSTEM

4.      NERVOUS SYSTEM

5.      SPECIAL SENSES

6.      DIGESTIVE SYSTEM

7.      CARDIOPULMONARY (CARDIOVASCULAR AND RESPIRATORY SYSTEMS)

8.      URO-GENITAL (URINARY AND REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS)

 

FIND ANY ERRORS? --As a human being, I am fallible. Therefore, if you find an error in my labeling of the photomicrographs or in the models, please contact me by email and I will make the corrections.
