What is the frontal view of the body called?
A coronal plane (also known as the frontal plane) is any vertical plane that divides the body into ventral and dorsal (belly and back) sections. It is one of the three main planes of the body used to describe the location of body parts in relation to each other axis.
What is a frontal cut in anatomy?
Frontal plane—A vertical cut that separates the front from the back of the specimen. Also known as a coronal plane. Parasagittal plane—A vertical cut that is off-center that separates the left of the specimen from the right in unequal portions.
What topics are covered in anatomy and physiology?
Course Requirements BIOL 2402 Anatomy and Physiology II is the second part of a two course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including cells, tissues and organs of the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive.
Which bones are visible from the superior view of the skull?
This view of the skull base demonstrates the occipital, temporal and sphenoid bones.
What are the 4 body positions?
The four main anatomical positions are: supine, prone, right lateral recumbent, and left lateral recumbent. Each position is used in different medical circumstances.
Is dorsal front or back?
Anterior (or ventral) Describes the front or direction toward the front of the body. Posterior (or dorsal ) Describes the back or direction toward the back of the body.
What are the 5 body planes?
Anatomical Planes of the Body
|Coronal Plane or Frontal Plane|
|Sagittal Plane or Lateral Plane|
|Axial Plane or Transverse Plane|
What are the 3 body planes?
The three planes of motion are the sagittal, frontal and transverse planes. Sagittal Plane: Cuts the body into left and right halves.
The dorsal (from Latin dorsum ‘back’) surface of an organism refers to the back, or upper side, of an organism. If talking about the skull, the dorsal side is the top. The ventral (from Latin venter ‘belly’) surface refers to the front, or lower side, of an organism.
What are the 78 organs in the human body?
What Are the 78 Organs of the Human Body?
- Adrenal glands.
- Bladder (urinary)
- Bone marrow (spongy part of the bone)
- Bronchi (tubes in the lungs)
What are the 5 branches of anatomy?
It’s divided into several branches, including histology, embryology, gross anatomy, zootomy, phytotomy, human anatomy, and comparative anatomy.
What are the three types of anatomy?
- Gross anatomy is subdivided into surface anatomy (the external body), regional anatomy (specific regions of the body), and systemic anatomy (specific organ systems).
- Microscopic anatomy is subdivided into cytology (the study of cells) and histology (the study of tissues).
What is a cranial ridge?
The cranial ridges, also referred to as exo- cranial ridges or cranial plates are bony plates on the surface of the forehead on many humanoid species. Some species, such as Humans, Vulcans, and the ancient humanoids do not possess visible cranial ridges.
What are the 14 facial bones called?
Facial Bones. The viscerocranium ( face ) includes these bones: vomer, 2 inferior nasal conchae, 2 nasals, maxilla, mandible, palatine, 2 zygomatics, and 2 lacrimals.
What is the hardest part of the skull?
Two temporal bones: These bones are located at the sides and base of the skull, and they are the hardest bones in the body. Each one includes the ears, which comprise the auditory ossicles-the three smallest bones in the body. Two parietal bones: These bones form most of the roof and sides of the skull.
