A is for Aorta!Aorta is the largest artery in the body, the aorta arises from the left ventricle of the heart, goes up (ascends) a little ways, bends over (arches), then goes down (descends) through the chest and through the abdomen to where ends by dividing into two arteries called the common iliac arteries that go to the legs.
B is for Blood!Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells, such as nutrients and oxygen,and transports waste products away from those same cells.
C is for cell!The cell is the structural and functional unit of all known living organisms.
D is for diaphragm!A diaphragm is a sheet of muscle extending across the bottom of the rib cage. The diaphragm separates the thoracic cavity from the abdominal cavity and performs an important function in respiration.
E is for Esophagus! Food is passed through the esophagus by using the process of peristalsis. Specifically, it connects the pharynx, which is the body cavity that is common to the digestive factory and respiratory system with the stomach, where the second stage of digestion is initiated.
F is for the frontal region!The frontal region embraces that part of the face above the eyes and nose in front and anterior to the temples at the sides.
G is for Gallbladder!The gallbladder is a hollow organ that sits in a concavity of the liver known as the gallbladder fossa.
H is for hair follicle! A hair follicle is part of the skin that grows hair by packing old cells together.
I is for Ileum!The ileum is the uppermost and largest bone of the pelvis, and appears in most vertebrates including mammals and birds, but not bony fish.
J is for Jugular!The jugular veins are veins that bring deoxygenated blood from the head back to the heart via the superior vena cava.
K is for Kidney!The kidneys are paired organs of the urinary system that have many homeostatic functions, including regulation of electrolytes, acid-base balance, and blood pressure; excretion of wastes such as urea and ammonium; reabsorption of glucose and amino acids; and production of hormones including vitamin D and erythropoietin.
L is for Lymph Node!A Lymph Node is an organ consisting of many types of cells, and is a part of the lymphatic system.
M is for Masseter!The masseter is a thick, somewhat quadrilateral muscle, consisting of two portions, superficial and deep.
N is for Nasal cavity!The nasal cavity is a large air-filled space above and behind the nose in the middle of the face.
O is for occipital artery!The occipital artery arises opposite the facial artery, its path is below the posterior belly of dynastic to the occipital region.
P is for Parietal Lobe!The parietal lobe integrates sensory information from different modalities, particularly determining spatial sense and navigation.
Q is for Quadriceps!A Quad is a large muscle group that includes the four prevailing muscles on the front of the thigh.
R is for Receptor!a receptor is a protein molecule, embedded in either the plasma membrane or cytoplasm of a cell, to which a mobile signaling molecule may attach.
S is for Sacrum!The sacrum is a large, triangular bone at the base of the spine and at the upper and back part of the pelvic cavity, where it is inserted like a wedge between the two hip bones.
T is for Thymus!The thymus is an organ located in the upper anterior portion of the chest cavity just behind the sternum.
U is for Ulna!The ulna is a long bone, prismatic in form, placed at the medial side of the forearm, parallel with the radius.
V is for Ventrical!In the heart, a ventricle is a heart chamber which collects blood from an atrium (another heart chamber that is smaller than a ventricle) and pumps it out of the heart.
W is for Water!75 % of the body is made of water. It needs it to survive.
X is for X- Chromosome!The X chromosome is one of the two sex-determining chromosomes in many animal species, including mammals (the other is the Y chromosome).
Y is for Y- Chromosome! The Y chromosome is the sex-determining chromosome in most mammals, including humans.
Z is for Zygomatic Bone!The zygomatic bone (cheekbone, malar bone) is a paired bone of the human skull.
