Lecture 01: Organization of the Body
Professor Diamond begins this biology lecture with a piece on the human brain (using a preserved specimen), then launches into a discussion into the basics of the muscular system. Includes - functional types, muscle origins and insertions.

Additional Information:
She also discusses the nomenclature for muscles and how these are impacted by the number of muscle heads, the muscle length, muscle location, and attachments. Professor Diamond next talks about the functions of the muscle and their functional types: flexors, extensors, adductors, abductors, supinators, and pronators.
