The human anatomy


The human anatomy refers to the study of the shape and the form of the body. It is composed of the following:

  • A Head
  • A Neck
  • A Torso connected from the neck
  • Two Hands
  • Two Legs

The shape of the body and frame is determined by a strong endo skeleton made up of bones and cartilage surrounded by fat, connective tissues, muscle, organs and others. The spine at the back of the body/skeleton contains a flexible vertebra column surrounding the spinal cord nourished by spinal fluid.

The human anatomy is composed of a spinal cord which is a collection of nerve fibers connecting the brain to the rest of the body. The nerves then connect the spinal cord and the brain to the rest of the body.

Blood vessels carry blood throughout the body from one point to the other moving as a result of the beating of the heart. The Venules – large veins and the veins collect blood low in oxygen from tissues all over the body into progressively larger veins until the two largest veins in the body namely:

  • The superior vena cava
  • The anterior vena cava

Which then drains blood into the right side of the heart.

Blood is then pumped into the lungs where it receives oxygen and drains back into the left side of the heart and is then pumped into the body’s largest artery called the Aorta and then to progressively smaller arteries and arterioles until it reaches tissues.

Blood then passes from the small arteries into the capillaries and the small veins and then the process begins all over again. Blood is known to carry oxygen, hormones. Waste products, fats, minerals from one part of the body to the other and is filtered by the kidney and the liver.

Cavities of human anatomy:

The human anatomy consists of different cavities housing different organ systems and they include:

  • The Blood Brain Barrier which is a cavity that protects the brain and the central nervous system from the rest of the body.
  • The Pleural Cavity which houses the lungs
  • The Abdominal Cavity housing the liver, spleen and the intestines.

The body shape, weight and height along with other body proportions vary with age and gender. The body shape is primarily influenced by the distribution of muscle and fat tissue in the body.
