What is the lower portion of the body called?
Inferior or caudal – away from the head; lower (example, the foot is part of the inferior extremity).
What is Anteriorview?
Anterior (or ventral) Describes the front or direction toward the front of the body. The toes are anterior to the foot. Posterior (or dorsal) Describes the back or direction toward the back of the body.
What is the term that describes a body part above other parts?
Superior (or cranial) describes a position above or higher than another part of the body proper. The orbits are superior to the oris. Inferior (or caudal) describes a position below or lower than another part of the body proper; near or toward the tail (in humans, the coccyx, or lowest part of the spinal column).
What body parts are lateral to each other?
A lateral orientation is a position away from the midline of the body. For instance, the arms are lateral to the chest, and the ears are lateral to the head. A medial orientation is a position toward the midline of the body. An example of medial orientation is the eyes, which are medial to the ears on the head.
What body part Cannot heal itself?
The brain actually can’t regenerate itself well because when the brain is damaged its cells find it harder to make new ones. This is because the brain has very few of the special cells, or stem cells.
What do you call the lower part of your stomach?
Directly above this is the epigastric region, or the region of the stomach. Directly below the umbilical region is the hypogastric region. On either side of the epigastric region are the right and left hypochondriac regions. To the right and left of the umbilical region are the right and left lumbar regions.
What are the 4 body planes?
Anatomical planes in a human:
- median or sagittal plane.
- a parasagittal plane.
- frontal or coronal plane.
- transverse or axial plane.
What are the 12 directional terms?
What are the 12 directional terms?
- Ventral. Toward the Front (or belly)
- Dorsal. Toward the Back (or spine)
- Anterior. Toward the front Side.
- posterior. Toward the back side.
- Superior. Above.
- Inferior. Below.
- Medial. Towards the middle.
- Lateral. Towards the side.
Are ears lateral to eyes?
Lateral: means to words the side with respect to the imaginary midline (the ears are lateral to the eyes).
Can the body heal itself from diseases?
Your body has an incredible capacity to heal itself. If you are injured or become ill your body should quickly and efficiently deal with the problem and restore itself to health.
Can the body heal itself from infection?
As doctors, we learn that the body can heal itself. Our physiology texts teach us that it is brilliantly equipped with natural self-repair mechanisms that kill the cancer cells we produce every day, fight infectious agents, repair broken proteins, keep our coronary arteries open and naturally fight the aging process.
What organ is behind the stomach?
Pancreas: Your pancreas is located behind your stomach and is attached to both your gall bladder and your small intestines.
Are there any anatomical terms that deal with location?
Standard anatomical terms of location deal unambiguously with the anatomy of animals, including humans. All vertebrates (including humans) have the same basic body plan – they are strictly bilaterally symmetrical in early embryonic stages and largely bilaterally symmetrical in adulthood.
Which is part of the body is superior or inferior?
Superior or cranial – toward the head end of the body; upper (example, the hand is part of the superior extremity ). Inferior or caudal – away from the head; lower (example, the foot is part of the inferior extremity). Anterior or ventral – front (example, the kneecap is located on the anterior side of the leg).
What are the different parts of the body?
Chest: is the below the neck and above the stomach. Arm pit: joint where the arm connects to the shoulder. Nipple: small projection of a woman’s or girl’s breast. Stomach: is used for digesting food. Navel: The little hole in in the center of a person’s belly. Waist: Part of the body just above hips.
Where does the term anatomical terminology come from?
Anatomical terminology uses many unique terms, suffixes, and prefixes deriving from Ancient Greek and Latin. These terms can be confusing to those unfamiliar with them, but can be more precise, reducing ambiguity and errors.
