Anatomy and Physiology I Lab Manual (CC BY)

This lab manual was created for Anatomy and Physiology I at the University of Georgia. The manual contains labs on cells, histology, the integumentary system, the skeletal system, the nervous system, muscles, and the senses.

Introduction to the Brain (CC BY)

This resource includes an introductory information pack for high school students and an activity with printable materials. It addresses the following learning outcomes: Name and locate the different lobes of the brain, understand the functions of each brain, and their real-life applications, actively work in a team with a common goal, and understand the implications of brain damage, such as the case of Phineas Gage.

Human Anatomy Lab Manual (CC BY)

This is a lab manual for a college-level human anatomy course. The activities in this manual encourage students to engage with new vocabulary in many ways, including grouping key terms, matching terms to structures, recalling definitions, and written exercises. Most of the activities in this manual utilize anatomical models, and several dissections of animal tissues and histological examinations are also included. Each unit includes both pre- and post-lab questions and six lab exercises designed for a classroom where students move from station to station. The vocabulary terms used in each unit are listed at the end of the manual and serve as a checklist for practicals.

Anatomy & Physiology I & II (CC BY-NC-SA)

This course focuses on a few themes that, when taken together, provide a full view of what the human body is capable of and of the exciting processes going on inside of it. The themes are:

  • Structure and function of the body, and the connection between the two.
  • Homeostasis, the body’s natural tendency to maintain a stable internal environment.
  • Levels of Organization, the major levels of organization in the human organism from the chemical and cellular levels to the tissues, organs and organ systems.
  • Integration of Systems, concerning which systems are subsets of larger systems, and how they function together in harmony and conflict.


Anatomy Illustrations (CC BY)

A collection of almost 300 anatomy illustrations by an instructor with over twenty years experience teaching anatomy.

Anatomy and Physiology Videos (CC BY)

A collection of YouTube playlists on different anatomy topics including anatomy of the senses, nervous system anatomy, muscle anatomy, appendicular skeleton anatomy, and axial skeleton anatomy.

The Visible Human Project (Public domain)

The NLM Visible Human Project® has created publicly-available, complete, anatomically detailed, three-dimensional representations of a human male body and a human female body. Specifically, the VHP provides a public-domain library of cross-sectional cryosection, CT, and MRI images obtained from one male cadaver and one female cadaver.


Anatomical Basis of Injury (CC BY)

An adaptation of Anatomy and Physiology (OpenStax) designed to supplement an Anatomical Basis of Injury in Athletic Training course while providing review of basic Anatomy and Physiology.
