Understanding the Human Body
An Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology : Part 2 of 4DVD - 2004
Surprising but true: once you start watching one of these fascinating lectures by distinguished surgeon Dr. Anthony Goodman, you can't stop. Your attention will be riveted to them. Why? In Dr. Goodman's lectures you find out about yourself, your body, the bodies of your parents and loved ones-and you will quickly find that your mind will not let go of this fascinating voyage. Your single most valuable possession is your own body. Yet consider how much of your mental life is consumed by reflection on things about your own body about which you know precious little beyond folk wisdom and a few scraps of rumored medical fact: sleep, eating, exertion, desire, sight, and so forth. Every lecture clears a fog. How do different kinds of anesthesia stop pain? How does the immune system distinguish friend from foe? What causes hunger, and how does the digestive system absorb nutrition?
