The Human Body Systems


Levels of organization

Levels of Organization

Remember that levels of organization in a multicellular organism include cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems.

Tissues are groups of similar cells that perform a single function, such as connecting a muscle to a bone.

An organ is a group of tissues that work together to perform a complex function, such as sight.

An organ system is a group of organs that perform closely related functions.


Four major tissues

Four Major Tissues

Epithelial tissue- includes glands and tissues that cover interior and exterior body surfaces.

Connective tissue- provides support for the body and connects its parts.

Nervous tissue- transmits nerve impulses throughout the body.

Muscle tissue- along with bones, enables the body to move; move substances thru the body

Anatomical planes

Anatomical Planes

This helps us to get a reference point and understand how we are looking at structures in a body.

As we cut along a plane, we are left with two “halves”

Label the diagrams accordingly.


Anatomical planes bipedal

Anatomical Planes- bipedal

FRONTAL (or coronal) separates the body into dorsal and ventral parts

MEDIAN (or midsagittal) separates body into right and left parts

HORIZONTAL separates the body into superior and inferior parts

SAGITTAL any plane parallel to the median plane

superior

Dorsal/ posterior

Ventral/ anterior

inferior


Anatomical planes quadrupedal

Anatomical Planes- quadrupedal

FRONTAL (or coronal) separates the body into dorsal and ventral parts

MEDIAN (or midsagittal) separates body into right and left parts

HORIZONTAL separates the body into superior and inferior parts

SAGITTAL any plane parallel to the median plane

dorsal

anterior

posterior

ventral
