We're about to spend some time learning a whole bunch of anatomical terms for body parts and body regions. Now, these anatomical terms are just Greek and Latin terms for body parts. And there's gonna be a number of them in our videos. We're gonna learn close to 50. But it's really important to remember here that every class, every professor tends to give you a slightly different list that you need to learn. So check your notes and make sure the words that you're studying are the exact words that are gonna be on your test. So why are we doing this now? Well, as you go forward in the class, these words are gonna come up over and over and over again. As you learn the names from muscles, bones, blood vessels, nerves, you're gonna see these Greek and Latin words come up over and over again. And for example, if you know the femoral region is your thigh. Well, where's the femoral artery? It's the largest artery in your thigh. That's one less blood vessel that you need to know because you learned your anatomical terms to learn these, there's really nothing conceptual about it. It's just a list of words, a list of vocabulary that you got to memorize the definitions. So this is my suggestion for learning these first off start by practicing one region at a time. Break it up close to 50 words is a lot. Break it up to region by region. We do that in the videos. We're gonna start with the head and neck, move to the the trunk, the arms legs, et cetera. Learn one region, move on to the next, go back and practice the first. Next, I really suggest you practice saying the terms out loud, being able to say a word will help you remember it so much more easily. So practice pronouncing the word, even if you pronounce it wrong, say it out loud so you can hear it in your head, you'll remember it better. Next, give yourself a self test sheet. So I suggest printing up an anatomical model, just kind of like this, print up a number of them, practice labeling, write in those words over and over. Figure out what which ones you're missing and then practice those more flashcards. Are your friends, right? In anatomy and physiology. This is a course that there's really helps to make flashcards. This section will probably help more than any other. You're learning vocabulary. Flashcards are great for that. Next, I think just playing Simon says with your friends, right? That classic kid's name Simon says, touch your ear. Simon says, wiggle your nose touch your chest. Oh, Simon, didn't say you can do the same thing with anatomical terms, right? Simon says touch your otic region. Simon says, wiggle your nasal region, touch your thoracic region. Simon didn't say sounds dumb, sounds corny. But if it's 11 o'clock with your study group and your brain is mush. Take a, take a break, play a game and stay on task. All right. Finally, I suggest making and using memory tools as we go through this for pretty much every word I'm gonna give you something that helps me remember the meaning of that word. If it helps you remember the meaning of that word. Great. If it doesn't come up with your own memory tool. All right, with that, let's go learn some anatomical terms.
