detached outermost muscle hanging off top lower leg
detached small muscle just beneath sartorius (leg)
tensor fascia lata
detached muscle on the inner portion of thigh
more cranial butt muscle
gluteus medius
more caudal butt muscle
gluteus maximus
group of four muscles deep to the sartorius and tensor fascia lata
quadriceps femoris
most lateral quadricep
vastus lateralis
most medial quadricep
vastus medialis
center quad muscle (between lateral and medial muscles)
rectus femoris
outside flap (detached muscle of thigh)
biceps femorus
thigh muscle deep to gracilis that connects to knee
thigh muscle deep to gracilis that connects just below knee
biceps femorus, semimembranosus, and semitendinosus make up this group
calf muscle
tendon behind ankle
achilles tendon
muscle down length of shin
tibialis anterior
compare amount of receptors in the skin on various parts of the body
most sensitive/more receptors (in order): finger tip, nose, tongue
least sensitive/less receptors: hand back and palm
what does the proprioceptive sense do?
allows us to recognize the location and rate of movement of one part of the body in relation to the other parts...skills in experiment improved with each try
tongue map
sweet - tip
bitter - back
salty - front sides
sour - back sides
how cold and heat receptors compare
skin has more heat receptors than cold receptors, so is more sensitive to heat
taste inheritance
people can only perceive certain tastes if they have the gene that allows them to, one example is phenylthiocarbamide (PTC)
taste and smell
while some basics can be tasted without smell (like salt), smell is necessary to get the full flavor of something
the clear covering over the pupil/iris
portion that gives eye its "color"
hole in center of eye
outermost layer of eyeball
middle pigmented layer of eyeball
innermost layer of eyeball
portion of eye just behind pupil/iris
muscles holding lens in place
ciliary body
space between cornea and lens
anterior chamber
spaces lateral to lens
posterior chamber
gelatinous material filling eyeball
vitreous body
iridescent portion of choroid
tapetum lucidum
nerve coming off back of eyeball
optic nerve
small circle covering area where optic nerve enters eye
optic disc
most lateral section of ear, up to eardrum
outer ear
portion of ear containing ear ossicles
middle ear
most medial portion of ear, everything medial to stapes
inner ear
outer fleshy part of ear
outer ear canal
external auditory meatus
tympanic membrane
ear ossicles, outside in
inner ear canal that connects middle ear and throat
eustachian tube
first part, "bulb" of inner ear
fluid-filled tubes in inner ear
semicircular canal
shell-like part of inner ear
nerve extending from cochlea
auditory nerve
function of ear ossicles
transmit sound waves from tympanic membrane to inner ear
function of eustachian tubes
allow middle ear to equalize with surrounding atmospheric pressure
how semicircular canals relate to equilibrium
3 canals in three planes at right angles to each other which detect dynamic equilibrium as movement of the fluid inside bends haircells and generates electric potentials that are sent to the brain for interpretation
outermost layer surrounding brain
dura mater
right and left sides of brain
cerebral hemispheres
ridges on the cerebral cortex
grooves in cerebral cortex
bulbs on the underside, most front part of the brain
olfactory bulbs
white band between hemispheres

area below pineal gland
corpora quadrigemina
upper portion of corpora quadrigemina
superior colliculi
lower portion of corpora quadrigemina
inferior colliculi
little round piece sticking off of human model brain
area next to thalamus/hypothalamus (moving toward back/bottom)
area between midbrain and medulla
area below pons, just above spinal cord
medulla oblongata
very end of brain stem, just below medulla
spinal cord
