9781565858541: The Great Courses: Understanding The Human Body: An Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology

You live with it 24 hours a day. But how well do you really know it? These 32 lectures are your owner's manual to a remarkably complex, resilient, and endlessly fascinating structure: the human body. Surgeon and professor of medicine Dr. Anthony Goodman takes you step by step through the major systems of the body, explaining exactly how things work and why they sometimes don't. Unlike a typical anatomy lab in medical school, these lectures introduce anatomy by systems. Dr. Goodman correlates the findings in anatomy with the functioning of the normal human body, its physiology. Each lecture concentrates on a particular organ or organ system; for example, the heart. The following lecture then examines the physiology of the system, looking, for example, at a normally functioning heart. Finally, to make the connections even more meaningful, Dr. Goodman discusses the more common clinical problems that occur when something goes wrong, known as the pathology of the organ or system; for example, a heart attack. The systems you'll learn about include the cardiovascular, respiratory, nervous, digestive, urinary, reproductive, reproductive, and immune systems. You'll also get a fascinating lecture on the biology of human cancer. Dr. Goodman's teaching style is clear but comprehensive, objective but humane, learned but lighthearted.
