Human anatomy

April 2017


Definition

Human anatomy is the study of the body in all its aspects, with focus on different regions: the head and neck, dorsal region, central nervous system, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, and limbs. As if drawing out a veritable atlas of the human body, the field of anatomy details every organ, every bone, and so on, but also their location in regards to dozens of systems, including the skeleton and muscles, the cardiovascular, nervous, and lymphatic systems, the digestive apparatus, or the respiratory, reproductive, and urinary systems.
