History, Human Anatomy, Anatomical Nomenclature

Anatomy, a subfield of biology, is the study of the structure of living things. There are three main areas of anatomy: cytology studies the structure of cell; histology examines the structure of tissues; and gross anatomy deals with organs and organ groupings called systems. Comparative anatomy, which strives to identify general structural patterns in families of plants and animals, provided the basis for the classification of species. Human anatomy is a crucial element of the modern medical curriculum.
