InnerBody: Urinary System

San Francisco, California - United States

The kidneys are a pair of bean-shaped organs found along the posterior wall of the abdominal cavity. The left kidney is located slightly higher than the right kidney because the right side of the liver is much larger than the left side. The kidneys, unlike the other organs of the abdominal cavity, are located posterior to the peritoneum and touch the muscles of the back. The kidneys are surrounded by a layer of adipose that holds them in place and protects them from physical damage. The kidneys filter metabolic wastes, excess ions, and chemicals from the blood to form urine.

InnerBody: Nervous System
United States

The nervous system consists of the brain, spinal cord, sensory organs, and all of the nerves that connect these organs with the rest of the body. Together, these organs are responsible for the control of the body and communication among its parts. The brain and spinal cord form the control center known as the central nervous system (CNS), where information is evaluated and decisions made.

Innerbody: Muscular System
United States

The muscular system is a system of tissues - called muscles - throughout the body which allow you to move. Most of the muscles in the body are under conscious control and are moved by commands sent to the muscles from the brain via the nervous system. However, some muscles (such as the cardiac muscles) are involuntary - that is, they move regularly without any conscious control. Except for the involuntary muscles, muscle fibers are connected to t

The heart is a muscular pumping organ located medial to the lungs along the bodys midline in the thoracic region. The bottom tip of the heart, known as its apex, is turned to the left, so that about 2/3 of the heart is located on the bodys left side with the other 1/3 on right. The top of the heart, known as the hearts base, connects to the great blood vessels of the body: the aorta, vena cava, pulmonary trunk, and pulmonary veins.

InnerBody:  Integumentary System
United States

The integumentary system is made up of the skin and its appendages (such as the fingernails, toenails and the hair). Its primary function is to protect the body from damage; it is also involved in temperature regulation and in the sense of touch. Upon exposure to sunlight, the integumentary system is also the primary vehicle for synthesis of vitamin D.

Innerbody: Female Reproductive System
United States

The female reproductive system includes the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterus, vagina, vulva, mammary glands and breasts. These organs produce female sex hormones, and create and transport gametes. The female reproductive system also facilitates the fertilization of ova by sperm and supports the development of offspring during pregnancy and infancy.

Innerbody: Male Reproductive System
United States

The male reproductive system enables a man to have sexual intercourse and to fertilize ova (eggs) with sperm (male sex cells). Sperm and the male sex hormones are produced in the testes. This is a pair of oval-shaped glands which are suspended in a pouch of skin; this pouch is called the scrotum.
