Visualizing Human Physiology

In this program, the complex physiological system of the human body are introduced - muscular movement, digestion, circulation, respiration, nerves, glands, immunity, and reproduction. The cellular basis of life, and the importance of carbon in organic chemistry are illustrated and explained.

Chapter List
1.) Chapter 1: Introduction to the Human Machine
00:06:52Human beings, life every living organism, are driven by two inherent needs - to survive, and ultimately, to reproduce - that is - to pass our genes on to the future of our species. To accomplish the goals of survival and reproduction we have inherited bodies finely crafted by evolution so that every one of us, every individual human organism, is an organic super factory - a living matching made up of systems that process fuel, build products, repair damage expel waste, and defend against invade
2.) Chapter 2: The Cellular Nature of the Human Machine
00:03:06The molecules that make up living things are all based on carbon. Such molecules are identified as organic. This chapter describes the four organic molecules that form the elemental cellular structures and chemical processes of the human body: proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids.
3.) Chapter 3: An Overview of Physiological Systems
00:01:12This overview of the physiological systems covers circulation, digestion, hormones, immunity, skin, nerves, skeleton, muscles, and reproduction.
4.) Chapter 4: Circulation
00:00:27This chapter presents human circulation.
5.) Chapter 5: Digestion
00:00:26This chapter presents digestion in the human being.
