Systemic Anatomy definition organization of body into organ systems
Systemic Anatomy integumentary, skeletal, muscular, articular, nervous, circulatory, digestive, respiratory, urinary, reproductive, endocrine
Tissues epithelial, connective, muscle, nervous
Epithelial covers surfaces because cells are in contact, lines hollow organs, cavities and ducts, forms glands when cells sink under the surface
Connective tissues that bind together; cells rarely touch due to extracellular matrix; matrix (fibers & ground substance secreted by cells), consistency varies: liquid, gel, &solid; Doesn't occur on free surface, good nerve & blood supply except cartilage & tendons
Anatomical standing upright, facing the observer, eyes facing forward, feet flat on floor, arms at sides, palms turned forward
