The spinal cord is the part of the central nervous system running inside the spinal column from which spinal nerves branch out.
This animation demonstrates how muscles and vertebrae move the head.
The main parts of the human brain are the brain stem, the cerebellum, the diencephalon, and the cerebrum, which is divided into lobes.

This scene explains the structure and functions of the bones.
Bones of the lower limbs are connected to the trunk by the pelvis.
The ‘upright man’ used tools and could set fire.
This animation introduces the most important organ systems of the human body.
The brain and skull underwent significant changes during human evolution.
Humans have 4 types of teeth: incisors, canines, premolars and molars.
The knee joint is made up by the femur, the tibia and the kneecap.
The limbic system plays an important role in forming emotions and in learning.
Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person's spine has a lateral deviation.
This animation shows the symptoms and treatment of secretory otitis media.
The arms are moved by flexor and extensor muscles.
The reflex triggered by the stretching of the thigh extensor muscle is the patellar reflex.
The ear converts the vibrations of air into electric signals which are then processed by the brain.
This animation demonstrates the fine molecular structure and mechanism of muscles.
This animation demonstrates the internal structure of the brain.
Human bones are joined together by cartilaginous or synovial joints, sutures or they can fuse together.
Synovial joints can be categorised by the direction of movement they allow.
Bones of the upper limbs form the pectoral girdle and the arms.
This animation demonstrates the structure and operation of CT scanners.
Skeletal muscles form the active part of the locomotor system: they move the bones they are attached to.
The ribs, the sternum and the spinal column form the skeleton of the chest.
During the evolution of vertebrates the relative development of brain areas has changed.
