Human Anatomy

The cerebellum is a section of the brain that is most in charge of cognitive functions and motor skills.

Pons are a part of the brain stem, above the medulla, below the midbrain and anterior to the cerebellum.

The midbrain, also known as the mesencephalon is the part of the brain most responsible for vision, motor control, arousal, temperature regulation, alertness and hearing.

Muscle is soft tissue that is filled with protein filaments that manipulates the shape of a cell which can help with posture, movement and functions of other organs in the body such as the lungs and heart as well as the digestive tract.

The liver is the organ in charge of processing, neutralizing and excreting certain secretions for the metabolic processes.

The large intestine is the organ that follows the small intestine but is the last part of the digestive tract before the waste leaves the body.

Kidneys are the organs in the body that regulate blood pressure, electrolytes, acid-base homeostasis and other homeostatic functions.

The eye is the sensory organ located on the front facial region in charge of reacting with light to help provide images to the brain.

The esophagus is the muscular tube that is located between the pharynx and the stomach that aids in digestion during swallowing.

The ear is an organ from the auditory system that collects sounds, and also balances and enables body position.

The pituitary gland, also called the hypophysis, is an endocrine organ found within a small, bony cavity at the base of the brain. Its primary function is to secrete hormones that regulate homeostasis.

The pineal gland, also called the epiphysis cerebri, is an endocrine organ located in the brain.

The pharynx is situated directly after the mouth and nose and lies right before the esophagus.

The ovaries are the two reproductive female organs where the eggs are produced. These are parallel to the testes in men.

The nose is the organ that extends outward in the middle of the face between the eyes and mouth.

Nails are found on the fingers and toes alike.

The mouth is the beginning of the digestive system which takes in food and mixes it with saliva produced by glands located in the mouth.

The gall bladder is the sac-shaped organ that is the passage between the liver and intestine where bile is held.

The main basis for functionality in the brain is the transmission of electrical signals and messages.

Salivary glands are glands that produce both saliva and the enzyme that turns starch into maltose, called amylase.
