Description

Have you ever wondered why you quickly react when you touch a hot surface? This is because the nervous system transmits neural impulses to the brain which in turn sends a message to your muscles. In this interesting and easy to understand course, the anatomical features for each important bodily system are outlined in detailed diagrams, and the physiological functions of each system are clearly explained. This will help you to easily learn how these systems develop and interact with each other.

As you progress through the course, you will learn about the structure and functions of the blood and blood vessels, the heart, the human digestive system, the muscular system, the respiratory system, the nervous system, the sensory organs, and the human skeleton. The course will also cover the structure and functions of the male and female reproductive systems as well as the development of offspring during the intrauterine process.

This human anatomy and physiology course is ideal sent for students who need to learn about biomedical science and medicine, and also those who just want to expand their knowledge and understanding of the human body and its different organs a bit more. So check out the course for yourself and improve your understanding of the human body today.
