Introduction to the cavities of the body, brain, spinal cord, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, urinary, endocrine and integumentary systems of the body by detailing location, major organs involved, function and characteristics of each of the various systems. No prerequisites required.

A detailed study of the organs, vessels, functioning (including electrical functioning) and characteristics of the heart, arterial blood supply, venous blood return, lymphatic circulation and specific processing of the same. Both blood and lymph circulation are covered from the macro processing to the micro processing levels. No prerequisites required.

Introduction to the properties and types of sensory receptors, general senses, chemical senses, hearing and equilibrium and vision. Students will anatomically locate, describe and identify organ systems and related divisions. No prerequisites required.

An introduction to the nervous system with general definitions and common terminology, organization of nervous system, histology of nervous tissue, progressing to specific anatomical details of the spinal cord and lower extremity nerves, including development, functioning, diagnostic procedures, protection and homeostatic imbalances. Prerequisites: Anatomy 1511, Anatomy 1433.

A continuation of Anatomy 2713 with continued study of the spinal cord and an introduction to the upper extremity nerves. Homeostatic imbalances in these areas are examined as well as a detailed analysis of dermatomes, myotomes and reflexes (theory and assessment). Prerequisite: Anatomy 2713.

A continuation of Anatomy 2723 studying anatomy of the brain and cranial nerves, followed by a study of the Autonomic Nervous System (sympathetic, parasympathetic), visceral reflex arcs, dysfunctions and disorders.
