Introduction to Volume 4 | Acland's Video Atlas of Human Anatomy Skip to main content


In this tape we’ll look first at the structures involved in support and movement of the head, then at the facial skeleton and base of the skull, then at the structures involved in breathing, eating, swallowing and speaking.

In the second tape we’ll look at the blood vessels of the head and neck, then at the brain, the cranial nerves, the ear, and the eye.

As in other parts of the body, understanding the bones provides the foundation for everything else we need to learn. The skull is such a complicated piece of bony anatomy that we won't try to understand all of it at once. Instead, we'll build up our picture of it a little at a time in the course of this tape. In each section we'll add the parts of the skull that are new, to the parts that we've seen already. In that way we'll end up with a complete picture.
