ANATOMY & PHYSIOLOGY

The Bartleby.com edition of Gray's Anatomy of the Human Body features 1,247 vibrant engravings--many in color--from the classic 1918 publication, as well as a subject index with 13,000 entries.

 
The interactive, anatomy atlases available at this site have been produced by the University of Washington, Seattle. Brain, neuroanatomy, thorcic viscera, and knee atlases are available. The software and images are available for non-commercial use with some restrictions.

Cells Alive! provides basic cell biology, microbiology, and immunology videos, micrographs and diagrams. The images are available for use in lectures and handouts and for other nonprofit, educational use with some important exceptions.

The site is a fully animated and interactive resource. Aiming to explaing the body's complex physiologica interactions and to illustrate its improtant anatomical landmarks, the site includes diagrams and drawings as well as quizzes and a tutorial. General subject breakdowns thus far are: skeletal system, muscle tissue physiology, muscular system, nervous system, circulatory system, respiratory system, urninary system, and histology.

The anatomical plates of Pietro da Cortona(1596-1669) and Paolo Mascagni(1752-1815) and the anatomical "flap book" of Johan Remmelin(1583-1632) have been scanned and made available by the Hardin Library for the Health Sciences at the University of Iowa. Access these images through the "Images from the Collection" links on the left-hand side of the page.

Picsearch is a company at the cutting edge of visual search that provides an image search engine for individual users as well as for search engines and portals. Picsearch connects its users to the vast visual resources of the Internet. Picsearch uses its own techonology to crawl the web and has created a searchable index of images.

One of several sites where Visible Human Project data can be viewed. This version has male and female cross-section images, MRIs, and CT scans of various parts of the body. Other projects based on Visible Human data can be accessed at http://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/visible/animations.html
