206 SKELETON MODULE - under construction (where have I seen that before!)

General Introduction

From actual bodies almost all the ideas of anatomical theory developed, but to understand this theory it is easier to use lists and labelled diagrammatic PowerPoint images (in 206), which present a simplified view and one that ignores anatomical variation from one person to another. The purpose of the anatomy lab is for you to find out what bodies are really like to the extent that we can do this once they are dead.
In the lab, within your working group of three or four, someone needs to have brought a copy of Guy's Anatomy book, a list of the structures to be learned for the test, & whatever of this can usefully be printed out and brought with you. Although, the idea is to have most of this in your head when you come in. However, printing out the Figs in black and white of course loses the color used extensively to distinguish things. You can, later, go over the labels and leaders and restore them with colored highlighters.
For using this material at the computer, some may work from the screen just clicking the links, others may want a printed version to read along with going off for the images.


Skeleton It is important that you also learn the Skeleton from Julia Guy's Computer-based Anatomy Program, among other reasons because her images are used for part of all our lab exams. You have access to her Anatomy Lab Program on the HSC server reached from the SBLC computers (Room 4005), and on the CD that is sold separately from her Atlas in the Bookstore. Not everyone needs to buy the CD - make your own sharing arrangements. You will also have to download a recent version of QuickTime to play the demonstrations (animations). However, if you cannot play these, try clicking on 'Demonstration' again, then 'Continue' to keep moving.
From their shapes, positions and peculiarities, the bones permit particular movements round joints. Guy's Prgram has brief video clips illustrating certain movements. A few of these you will need to know as part of the 206 theory about Muscles and their actions. Also, to be known for Theory is the MICROSCOPICAL STRUCTURE of bone and cartilage, and some of its clinical implications.

Guide to Guy's Anatomy Lab on SBLC Computers

1 If the computer asks for a User ID, type in the computer's own number, e.g., SBCL09. Leave 'Password' blank and hit enter.

2 Choose (double-click) the icon 'Shortcut to HSC SBLC SOFTWARE'

3 From the many icons, choose 'Anatomy Lab'

4 Choose 'The Upper Limb'

5 Choose 'Axial Skeleton and Muscle'

6 Wait until the program starts, then, in the query box, type a single letter, number, or punctuation mark, and hit ENTER to proceed

7 From now on, whenever a question is posed, anything typed in the box, followed by ENTER lets you progress

8 To get out, use 'Back to Menu, 'Yes', followed by as many 'Quits' and 'Close' as it takes.

9 When you return just to Guy's main menu, you can find the Appendicular Skeleton in the Upper and Lower Limb boxes.
