Anatomy and Physiology and Pig Heads

Submitted by shelley.heaton on

Anatomy and Physiology students took part in a pig head dissection. The dissection was led by Brian Blake.

Students have been studying the nervous system and today they were able to look at many of the parts of the nervous system. They looked at and cut out the tongue, and eyeballs.

Students used saws to cut the skull to look at the brain, finding the cerebellum and many nerves.

The students had a great time exploring the head . Their only regret was that they wished they had more time.

It is always something amazing going on in our Anatomy and Physiology class here at the ALC. This is without a doubt, pretty a pretty amazing lab that they had this week.

Have you ever wondered what the lens of your eye looks like, the optic nerve, or what is behind your eyeball?

Well,  the student in the class got to see up close and personally how eyeballs work.  They dissected a cow eyeball and looked at the many structures of an eye.

Thank you, Ms. Hartvigsen and Mr. Blake for being willing to have such amazing hands-on experiences for these students.

It never ceases to amaze me what comes out of that class.

These students are amazing and very dedicated to their studies. Way to go!
