Human Anatomy

In its broadest sense, anatomy is the study of the structure of something, in this case a human. Human anatomy deals with the way the parts of humans, from molecules to bones, interact to form a functional whole. The study of anatomy is distinct from the study of physiology, although the two are often paired.




The skeletal system includes all of the bones and joints in the body. Each bone is a complex living organ that is made up of many cells, protein fibers, and minerals. The skeleton acts as a scaffold by providing support and protection for the soft tissues that make up the rest of the body.

The muscular system is responsible for the movement of the human body. Attached to the bones of the skeletal system are about 700 named muscles that make up roughly half of a person’s body weight. Each of these muscles is a discrete organ constructed of skeletal muscle tissue, blood vessels, tendons, and nerves.

There are 11 different body systems. Each has it's individual purpose. Two of the most famous systems are the skeletal and the muscular systems (bones and muscles). The other 9 systems are the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the endocrine system, the nervous system, respiratory system, the lymphatic system (also known as the immune system), the urinary system, the reproduction system, and the integumuntary system.

This video is about the bones in the human body. Watch out! It's at least six minutes long.
