All the lymph-sacs except the cisterna chyli are, at a later stage, divided up by slender connective tissue bridges and transformed into groups of lymph glands. The human brain contains about billion nerve cells Water makes up more than 50 percent of the average adult's body weight You use your eyes to see, your ears to hear and your muscles to do the heavy lifting. The lymphatic capillaries and collecting vessels are lined throughout by a continuous layer of endothelial cells, forming thus a closed system. The left atrium receives the four pulmonary veinswhich bring oxygenated blood from the lungs. The space between the lungs, the mediastinumis bordered by the mediastinal pleura, a continuation of the membrane lining the chest.

Of these features, the first two are present only during the embryonic stage in the human; the notochord is replaced by the vertebral column, and the pharyngeal gill slits are lost completely. Nucleic acids make up the genetic materials of the body. Muscle and connective tissues form its wall, epithelial and connective tissues form its lining, and nervous tissue extends throughout both its wall and its lining. See all videos for this article The primary function of the heart is to serve as a muscular pump propelling blood into and through vessels to and from all parts of the body. The slight space created by the separation is called the pericardial cavity.

The immune system is the body's defense against bacteria, viruses and other pathogens that may be harmful. These lymph-sacs are developed by the confluence of numerous venous capillaries, which at first lose their connections with the venous system, but subsequently, on the formation of the sacs, regain them. Of these features, the first two are present only during the embryonic stage in the human; the notochord is replaced by the vertebral column, and the pharyngeal gill slits are lost completely. The atria receive blood from various parts of the body and pass it into the ventricles. The average adult takes over 20, breaths a day.

A system of the anatomy of the human body book

External surface of the heart Shallow grooves called the interventricular sulcicontaining blood vessels, mark the separation between ventricles on the front and back surfaces of the heart.

The job of the circulatory system is to move blood, nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and hormones, around the body. The female reproductive system consists of the vagina, the uterus and the ovaries, which produce eggs.

Its main job is to make is to make and move lymph, a clear fluid that contains white blood cells, which help the body fight infection. The male reproductive system includes the penis and the testes, which produce sperm. Well, sort of. Using these images, the author has explained the working of different systems including the digestion system and the muscular system.

The lymphatic system also removes excess lymph fluid from bodily tissues, and returns it to the blood. That the images were selected by an international panel of scientists, academics and curators is evident in their variety and depth.

Although there are some different types of cells in the body, these can be grouped into four basic classes. The skin, or integumentary systemis the body's largest organ. Grammatical Errors I did not find any grammatical errors. Muscle and connective tissues form its wall, epithelial and connective tissues form its lining, and nervous tissue extends throughout both its wall and its lining.

The dorsal nerve cord is the spinal cord in humans; it remains throughout life. The quality of the works is inconsistent, and even some of the stronger ones are saddled with vague, shallow descriptions.

Human body

Fun facts The human body contains nearly trillion cells. For a discussion of diseases affecting the heart and blood vessels, see the article cardiovascular disease. This article describes the structure and function of the heart and blood vessels, and the technologies that are used to evaluate and monitor the health of these fundamental components of the human cardiovascular system.

About two-thirds of the heart lies to the left of the midline. The kidneys take urea out of the blood and combine it with water and other substances to make urine. The lungs are responsible for removing oxygen from the air we breathe and transferring it to our blood where it can be sent to our cells.Mar 10,  · The human brain is the body's control center, receiving and sending signals to other organs through the nervous system and through secreted hormones.
