The Anatomy of the Human Body

Santa Monica, California - United States

The human body is an amazing living machine with hundreds of parts that, for the most part, work together to flawlessly perform countless tasks. Although a complex system, the human anatomy breaks down into a number of individual processes or systems, each of which has a specific function. The combination of these systems adds up to form the complete anatomy of the human body.

Hip Bone's Connected to the....
The human anatomy is held upright by bones, without which people would be shapeless blobs. There are 205 bones, on average, in the adult human body, most of which are connected to other bones.

Moving Around:
Bones may be the support structure, but without muscles there would be no movement. Walking, talking, sitting, standing--it all requires the muscles that connect to and move the bones.

Keep it Pumping:
The circulatory system moves blood throughout the body in a closed loop that takes it out to the extremities and then back to the heart and lungs. Red blood cells carry oxygen and other materials through the body; white blood cells help fight off infections.

In and Out:
The oxygen carried in red blood cells, which is burned by the body as fuel, comes from the ability to breathe. The respiratory system's main component is the lungs, which put air into the bloodstream with every breath.

Bundle of Nerves:
The body has its own communication network, which relays signals to and from the brain. These signals, which include such sensations as pain and temperature, are carried by the nervous system and then interpreted by the brain.

A Gut Feeling:
Of course, all of this requires food to provide the basic building blocks such as vitamins and minerals, as well as the energy we need to do things. The energy from food is absorbed throughout the length of the digestive system, via the stomach, intestines and other digestive organs.

Fast Facts: 1. The human body is made up of a head, neck, torso, two arms and two legs. The average height of an adult human is about 5 to 6 feet tall. The human body is made to stand erect, walk on two feet, use the arms to carry and lift, and has opposable thumbs (able to grasp). 2.
