But before you jump ahead to muscles, just hang on, relax your basic sphincters, and take a little time to learn some terms. You'll be glad later. Your sphincters will be fine, and when we get to muscles, they'll be easy and fun. Let's begin by making sure we understand the words. You'll get lost if you don't know them. At first, you may have to think for a moment to remember which means front and which means back, but when you can do it this fast, you have it forever. If you need a quick reminder, I've created a list of anatomy terms at proko.com/anatomy-terms. If you know the language of anatomy, you'll be able to figure out those long latin names, and you won't have to say "What the heck is Stan talking about?" Terms of Location Anterior describes something that is toward the front of the body. Alternatively, posterior describes something that is toward the back of the body. It also refers to the back of the hand, and top of the foot. Medial is something located toward the middle of the body or away from the side. The opposite is Lateral. Something that is toward the side of the body or away from the middle. Superior is toward the top or above. And Inferior is toward the bottom, below. Distal refers mainly to the limbs and describes something away from the center of the body. Alternatively, Proximal is something closer to the center of the body. When I say that something is deep, I mean that it is not visible on the surface. It's covered with other volumes. However, superficial means it is visible on the surface. And similarly, subcutaneous means just below the skin. Like the bony landmarks. Thanks Skelly! For the full video on the Language of Anatomy, head on over to proko.com/anatomy.
