For example, the thin flap of your eyelid can snap down to clear away dust particles and almost instantaneously slide back up to allow you to see again. Familiarity with the human body can help you make healthful choices and prompt you to take appropriate action when signs of illness arise. b Microscopic anatomy can deal with the same structures, though at a different scale. Gross anatomy is the study of the larger structures of the body, those visible without the aid of magnification a.

Some of these structures are very small and can only be observed and analyzed with the assistance of a microscope.

At the microscopic level, the arrangement and function of the nerves and muscles that serve the eyelid allow for its quick action and retreat. Imagine, for example, trying to appreciate the unique arrangement of the bones of the human hand if you had no conception of the function of the hand. Chapter Objectives After studying this chapter, you will be able to:• Form is closely related to function in all living things.

Regional anatomy is the study of the interrelationships of all of the structures in a specific body region, such as the abdomen. Homeostasis is the state of steady internal conditions maintained by living things.


Whereas anatomy is about structure, physiology is about function. When a body is dissected, its structures are cut apart in order to observe their physical attributes and their relationships to one another. However, current advances in physiology usually depend on carefully designed laboratory experiments that reveal the functions of the many structures and chemical compounds that make up the human body.
