Transcript of Anatomy and Physiology Venn Diagram Assignment

By: Lindsay Houston Anatomy & Physiology Venn Diagram Anatomy Anatomy is the science of body structures and their inter-relationships. There are several sub-categories of anatomy including:
Cellular- the study of the structure of a cell. A branch of cytology.
Developmental - the study of the structural development of the embryo.
Gross - the study of the structures which can be seen with the naked eye.
Histological - study of the structures of tissues.
Microscopic - study of the structures with the aid of a microscope.
Systemic - study of the structure of the body's systems.
Surface - study of the structure of the body's surface. Pertains to the size, shape, and location of a structure. Anatomy deals with identifying structures within organ systems and throughout the entire body. Physiology Anatomy & Physiology: The Connection Anatomy & Physiology: The Connection ONE) Both are a study of the human body and are dependent on one another in that one cannot know how to treat heart disease if one cannot first locate it. TWO) The application of anatomy and physiology allows medical professionals to prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases and assess the health of patients. By knowing the anatomical points of interest and the function of any organ in that area symptoms can be used as a simplifying factor instead of a complicating one. THREE) The accuracy and efficiency of scientific studies of the human body depend upon the understanding of both the structure and function of the organ, tissue, or system at hand. Without having proof of how a organ functions you cannot prove why it behaves a certain way. Physiology is the science of body functions and how things work. It is the study of mechanical, biochemical, and physical properties of living organisms as well as several sub-divisions including:
Cell - the study of the function of cells.
Pathology - study of disordered functions or disease.
Systemic - study of the function of the body's systems.
Special - (Organ) - study of the function of specific organs of the body. Encompasses the study of the specific functions within organ systems and organs.
Involves the chemical, electrical, and physical processes within an organism. THE END Thank you for viewing.
