Investigates the major body systems that are important during physical activity: the skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, and nervous systems. Examines each of these systems, their parts, their functions, and how they work. Also, explores the contribution and interaction of the systems when we exercise and while we are rest.
In this video, Pinky and Petunia discuss the 11 major organ systems in the human body. These include the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovasular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive system. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Shows the human body systems: lungs, heart, and skeleton. Demonstrates the structures of the lungs, heart, and arteries and veins. Explains exchange of gas in the lungs, ventilation of the lungs, and how the heart works as a pump. Also discusses the role of the skeleton in providing support, protection, and anchorage for muscles, the importance of bone marrow, and the importance of calcium in giving strength to bones.
Recapitulates and reviews the principal messages of the curriculum as it summarizes the functions and designs of the body's major systems and organs and the methods by which they interact. NOTE: Contains some nudity.
Special attention is given to the healthy maintenance of growing bodies. Concepts and terminology discussed include: body systems, cells, tissues, organs, health, and body needs.
Peoples’ attitudes about marijuana have changed dramatically over the years, but one thing is certain--marijuana changes the way the brain functions. The THC in marijuana enters the lungs, is absorbed into the bloodstream, and enters the brain almost immediately. Viewers will understand the immediate effects of marijuana use on various body systems. This program also discusses the effects of marijuana on attention, memory, and learning. Part of the "Talk It Out" series.
The city of Ann Arbor, Michigan has turned to engineering research to tackle an issue facing many cities: aging stormwater infrastructure during a time of tight budgets, growing populations, and more extreme weather. With support from the National Science Foundation, civil and environmental engineer Branko Kerkez and a team at the University of Michigan are building a new generation of smart and connected stormwater systems. Part of the "Science Nation" series.
An introduction to human biology-the subject of the most fascinating human study: ourselves. Shows a wide range of human activities and how the body enables us to live in diverse climates and perform diverse activities. Extraordinary close-up filming over the body's exterior and in its interior causes surface differences to fade away and shows the immensely complex and interactive systems that constitute the living body. NOTE: Contains some nudity.
Students learn and explore the major features of the skin, skeletal, and muscular systems. Special attention is given to the care and maintenance of skin, skeletal, and muscular systems. Concepts and terminology include: integumentary system, layers of skin, sweat glands, bone, osteocytes, periosteum, marrow, cartilage, ossification, types of joints, ligaments, types of muscle tissue, and voluntary and involuntary muscle.
Touch, taste, smell, hearing, and sight: the human body's five major senses. They are senses that have evolved independently over millions of years but are brought together by our marvelous central nervous system into the most refined way of interacting with the environment of any species on the planet. Join Dr. Mark Reisman as he provides you with a look at the anatomy and physiology of each of these sensory systems and shows how the brain uses them to produce what we call being human.
Human beings, like every living organism, are driven by two inherent needs: to survive, and ultimately, to reproduce. To accomplish the goals of survival and reproduction, we have inherited bodies crafted by evolution so that every individual human organism is an organic super factory, a living machine made up of systems that process fuel, build products, repair damage, expel waste, and defend against invaders. Introduces the complex physiological systems of the human body: muscular movement, digestion, circulation, respiration, nerves, glands, immunity, and reproduction. Also, illustrates and explains the cellular basis of life and the importance of carbon in organic chemistry.
Cells differ in size, shape, and function depending on their role in the body. Specialized cells make up tissues, tissues make up organs, and organs make up the systems that work together to make up the body. Join Pinky and Petunia as they discuss some examples of specialized plant and animal cells. Part of "The Amoeba Sisters" series.
Today's optoelectronic engineers are developing extremely thin glass that is both durable and scratch-resistant. Telecommunications systems require speed and accuracy, and glass is proving to be important in developing semiconductors, optical fibers, and multiplexing. Precisely engineered glass is also used in terrestrial and extra-terrestrial telescopes.
At the twilight of an active life, Anna is now bedridden due to a serious fall. What makes the elderly--even those who are in full possession of their mental and physical faculties--more prone to falling than younger people? As this program demonstrates, the answer lies not in the body or the brain alone, but in their interconnection. Exploring Anna's past dreams of becoming a ballerina, the film shows how complex physical motion, such as dancing or even typing, requires sophisticated coordination between the body's neural, muscular, and skeletal systems. How aging affects such coordination and how new artificial limb technology enables movement are running themes in the program.
Explores the major characteristics of the skeletal and muscular systems. Discusses the number of bones in the human body, describes their different shapes and sizes, and illustrates how bones need muscles to move. Talks about different kinds of joints, and gives examples of how we use joints everyday.
Features dozens of space professionals, from designers of space suits and life systems engineers to interior decorators and the "Lunar Lettuce Man." A touching story concerning famed teacher Jaime Escalante and one of his students is interwoven with imaginative vignettes that explore the humor and drama of day-to-day life away from Earth. Also stars Billy Bob Thornton, Kathy Bates, Jeffery Tambor, Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Raymond Cruz, Weird Al Yankovic, Vincent Schiavelli, and Pat Morita.
From the noise of an urban landscape to the musical cocoons created by high-tech devices, sound may be humanity's most lively and versatile interface with the world. Takes viewers on a sonic odyssey that assesses the frequently overlooked impact of what humans hear. Takes a CGI tour through the human ear and its vibration-decoding systems, defining the concept of sound. Also demonstrates the importance of sound in human spiritual and religious lives, while musical research at Edinburgh University highlights the link between sound patterns and human movement. Several experts, from physicists to sound engineers to audio artists, contribute to this exploration of humanity's sonic world.
Features different systems of measurement and their value to science in five separate segments. Stardust Elements: Looks at the life cycles of stars and explains how the death of a star seeds the universe with all the elements of the periodic table. End of Dinosaurs: Debates several scientific theories about why and how dinosaurs became extinct. Earthly Thermometers: Demonstrates how the Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin scales measure the same thing in different ways and why we need precise measurements of temperature. Frozen in Time: Pieces together the past of a 5,300-year-old man whose body was preserved in ice in the Italian Alps. Hurricanes Take the Heat: Follows researchers who study how hurricanes form and try to predict where the next one will strike.
At the Body Farm, the dead speak. Follows the world's first open-air crime lab with founder Bill Bass, of The University of Tennessee, for a close-up look at how cadavers decay. As proxies for murder victims, these decomposing bodies are studied in the name of science and the cause of justice. Talks about the factors and biological markers that help pinpoint time since death, including wind and weather, insects and carnivores, fire damage, soft tissue leachate, mold, and bacteria. Presents three homicide cases that hinged on data and expertise gained at the Farm, and shows Ph.D. students using forensic science and body processing. Shows human bodies in a variety of decomposition stages.
Storyteller Heather Forest uses song, pantomime, games, and discussion to introduce young students to the human body. Talks about key body parts and how they move; how the heart, lungs, and brain keep the body running; how the bones, joints, and muscles hold the body up and help it move; and how our senses help us enjoy the world. Introduces principles of healthy eating, daily exercise, and adequate rest.
