Anatomy and Physiology Revealed (APR)

This multimedia study aid is designed to help you explore human anatomy using cadaver specimens and master physiology concepts through animation. Digital dissections allow unlimited drill and practice - anytime, anywhere. Detailed information and audio pronunciations build anatomical knowledge, and comprehensive quizzing reinforces learning.

  • An interactive cadaver dissection experience designed to help you explore human anatomy using cadaver specimens and master physiology concepts through animation with detailed information and audio pronunciations to help build anatomical knowledge. Comprehensive quizzing reinforces learning.
  • Interactive cadaver dissection tool uses cadaver photos combined with layering technique that allows you to peel away layer by layer to reveal structures beneath the surface
  • Each section features animation, dissection, histology, and imaging slides and interactive self-test
  • Great way for students to learn and practice their anatomical knowledge through detailed imaging slides and animations
  • APR is keyboard navigable, offers descriptive text for functionality (buttons were added), is available for mobile delivery, and now has options for students with low vision, such as choice of highlighting colors and arrows within images. Efforts are ongoing to increase accessibility of this technology.

This 10 minute video will walk you through the resource in more detail.
