Terminology

Human anatomy is the study of the structure of the human body and of its various parts. Physiology is the study of the function of those parts. A complete understanding of anatomy requires knowledge of physiology, and a comprehension of physiology, requires knowledge of anatomy.

Scientific and medical terminology has been developed to accurately explain the location and relationship of the parts of the body. A thorough understanding of these terms, is necessary for a clear comprehension of the location and function of body parts. If you do not know the exact meaning of these terms, you will be unable to successfully master human anatomy and physiology.
