Heart


Human Heart – Diagram and Anatomy of the Heart
http://www.innerbody.com/image/card01.html
The heart is a muscular organ about the size of a closed fist that functions as the body’s circulatory pump. It takes in deoxygenated blood through the veins and delivers it to the lungs for oxygenation before pumping it into the various arteries (which provide oxygen and nutrients to body tissues by transporting the blood throughout the body).

Human Heart: Anatomy, Function & Facts
http://www.livescience.com/34655-human-heart.html
The human heart is an organ that pumps blood throughout the body via the circulatory system.

Your Digestive System and How It Works
http://www.niddk.nih.gov/health-information/health-topics/Anatomy/your-digestive-system/Pages/anatomy.aspx#top
The digestive system is made up of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract-also called the digestive tract-and the liver, pancreas, and the gallbladder. The GI tract is a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the anus.

The stomach, gallbladder, and pancreas are three of the most important digestive organs in the human body. These organs work together to produce and store secretions that digest our food into its most basic building blocks. Once digested, these small molecules pass into our intestines to be absorbed and to feed our body’s tissues.

http://training.seer.cancer.gov/anatomy/digestive/regions/intestine.html

The Small Intestine
http://teachmeanatomy.info/abdomen/gi-tract/small-intestine/
The small intestine is a organ located in the gastrointestinal tract, which assists in the digestion and absorption of ingested food. It extends from the pylorus of the stomach to the iloececal junction, where it meets the large intestine. Anatomically, the small bowel can be divided into three parts; the duodenum, jejunum and ileum.

Small Intestine Anatomy
http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1948951-overview

Small Intestine
http://www.innerbody.com/image_digeov/dige10-new3.html
The small intestine is a long, highly convoluted tube in the digestive system that absorbs about 90% of the nutrients from the food we eat. It is given the name “small intestine” because it is only 1 inch in diameter, making it less than half the diameter of the large intestine.

Large Intestine – Anatomy and Physiology
http://www.innerbody.com/anatomy/digestive/large-intestine
The large intestine is the final section of the gastrointestinal tract that performs the vital task of absorbing water and vitamins while converting digested food into feces. Although shorter than the small intestine in length, the large intestine is considerably thicker in diameter, thus giving it its name.

    Sensory Systems
    http://www.biology-online.org/9/8_sensory_systems.htm
    A sensory system is a part of nervous system consisting of sensory receptors that receive stimuli from internal and external environment, neural pathways that conduct this information to brain and parts of brain that processes this information.

    A collection of 22 bones, the skull protects the all-important brain and supports the other soft tissues of the head. During fetal development, the bones of the skull form within tough, fibrous membranes in a fetus’ head. As these bones grow throughout fetal and childhood development, they begin to fuse together, forming a single skull.

    Function and Structure of Muscles


    Muscular System – Muscles of the Human Body
    http://www.innerbody.com/image/musfov.html
    Human Muscular System – The muscles of the human body are illustrated and explained in high detail in our exploration of muscular system anatomy.

    Muscular System Anatomy, Diagram & Function
    http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/muscular-system
    The muscular system is the series of muscles throughout the body that moves the skeleton, maintains posture through steady contraction, and generates heat through cell metabolism. Humans have three types of muscle.

    Ureter Function, Anatomy & Definition
    http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/ureter
    The ureter is the tube that carries urine from the kidney to the urinary bladder. In humans there are two ureters, one attached to each kidney. The upper half of the ureter is located in the abdomen and the lower half is located in the pelvic area.

    Ureter
    http://www.innerbody.com/image_urinov/repo15-new2.html
    A ureter is one of two uterine tubes that carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder. Each ureter is about ten to twelve inches long. Urine flows down partly by gravity, but mainly by waves of contractions, which pass several times per minute through the muscle layers of the urethral walls.

    Urinary Bladder – Anatomy and Physiology
    http://www.innerbody.com/image_dige05/dige15.html
    The urinary bladder is a hollow elastic organ that functions as the body’s urine storage tank. Urine produced by the kidneys flows through the ureters to the urinary bladder, where is it stored before passing into the urethra and exiting the body.

    Bladder Anatomy, Function & Diagram
    http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/bladder
    The bladder, also known as the urinary bladder, is an expandable muscular sac that stores urine before it is excreted out of the body through the urethra. It is located in the lower abdominal area near the pelvic bones.

    Pituitary Gland Function, Location & Definition
    http://www.healthline.com/human-body-maps/pituitary-gland
    The pituitary gland is a pea-sized structure located at the base of the brain, just below the hypothalamus, to which it is attached via nerve fibers. It is part of the endocrine system and produces critical hormones, which are chemical substances that control various bodily functions.

    Pituitary Gland – Endocrine System
    http://www.innerbody.com/image/endo01.html
    The pituitary gland is a pea-sized gland located in the center of the skull, inferior to the hypothalamus of the brain and posterior to the bridge of the nose. It is an important link between the nervous and endocrine systems and releases many hormones which affect growth, sexual development, metabolism and human reproduction.

    The thyroid gland covers the windpipe from three sides. Two hormones of the thyroid gland, T3 (thyroxine) and T4 (triiodothyronine), help the body to produce and regulate the hormones adrenaline (also called epinephrine) and dopamine. Hormones are chemical substances that help control certain cells and organs.

    Pineal Gland – Anatomy Pictures and Information
    http://www.innerbody.com/image_nerv02/nerv64-new.html
    The pineal gland (or pineal body) is an important endocrine gland. It is a small, oval structure descending from the roof of the diencephalon, a section of the brain that relays sensory information between the brain’s different regions. Although it’s very tiny-only about six millimeters long-the pineal gland produces several important hormones.
