This laboratory manual was initially created by my teaching assistants — Dave Gardner, Lauren Zollinger, Josh Jones, and Susan McLaughlin — during the Spring semester of 1999. They wanted the students to have a clear understanding of what they were accountable for, as well as what they could expect to cover in each laboratory session. Since the lab is more readily available to students in the advanced anatomy class, we also want to share with you some protocol concerning the proper use and care of the lab and its valuable materials. Current teaching assistants and myself have modified the original version to help you get the most out of the laboratory experience.


If you don’t know people in the class. If you learn anything neat on your own about what we’re studying. The following books are beneficial in helping you learn the material. It is available on the computers in the BioMicroLab. Expectations This is a 5000 level class. building more knowledge is impossible. Therefore. you’ll remember it and be able to find it on another piece – and more importantly you will be more likely to be able to identify it on a practical exam. 1 . but when you finally find it. comparative morphology. and neuroanatomy texts in the lab office. It’s also tempting to just have a TA show you everything on one of the dissections. share it with us! Also. There are a few things that you should review and be able to identify on your own in the first one or two weeks of lab: 1. All of the bones of the articulated skull Relearning this material will also be a big help on the midterm lecture tests. It involves a little more work and looking in books. get to know them – especially those in your group. The British Gray’s Anatomy is really great. but without a good foundation. The Atlas of Human Anatomy by Frank Netter is a useful visual aid for the course. Try to find the structure on your own or with your anatomy buddies. Set aside a time during the posted office hours every week when you can come to the lab for an hour or so to review lab material. 2. embryology. All of the muscles in the trunk and limbs (including the hand and foot) Moore’s Clinical Anatomy is great. but that isn’t always the best method. 3. We expect you to enjoy it. This normally is much more enjoyable to do with friends taking the class. Your lab manual from Biology 2325 – Human Anatomy informs you how to access the software on the computers. more is expected of you than in Human Anatomy (Bio 2325). If you do put work into it. It takes a little time and work. It means that you want to be here to learn anatomy. memorizing a particular prosection isn’t always helpful. We expect you to put more time and work into it.Anatomy Foundation Much of the information that you will learn in the lab (and in the lecture) requires a good anatomy foundation. Netter’s Atlas is great. we’ll guarantee that you’ll have no regrets at the end of the semester. You can use it to brush up on structures and then you can come to the lab to review them on your own. On the practical exam we might use pieces that you have never seen in the lab. You do not need to go out and purchase the book. There are also other good anatomy. Don’t just point out structures that a TA has already shown you on a particular part in lab. Some suggestions: 1. and bookstore. remember that the Interactive Atlas CD you used in the Human Anatomy course can be an excellent resource for this course also. Use the lab. library. do not hesitate to check your find with a friendly TA after your search. To check yourself. That doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re expected to stockpile more information than the other class. Rohen/Yokochi’s Color Atlas of Human Anatomy is great. Doing a little research on a question also will help you remember what you learn. therefore. The books are available in the libraries on campus or can be purchased through Amazon.

This is especially true of the skulls. Think about anatomy critically. There are no quizzes at the beginning of lab to make you know the parts before we start. There are usually neat and stimulating answers to “why” and “how” questions that keep you desirous to learn more. There is a list of Netter Plates given for each lab that you should study carefully. Come to lab prepared. 6. 2 . 5. Coming to lab unprepared usually results in a bad learning experience. You should come in on your own to see these parts. Coming to office hours on a regular basis will be very beneficial. as it is impossible to cram for exams and the final practical exam. except during lab two.4. we will not be able to go over every structure on the Structures to Identify in Lab list during lab time. Ask questions to the TAs and yourself. Many times.

2. We’d like to keep it that way for future students. Carefully use wires to point out any landmarks or foramina on the skulls. Hey man! Stop playing with my nasal conchae! 3 . The wires are located in the front cupboard by the disarticulated skull box.Care of Skulls We are lucky to have a number of good quality human skulls from which to learn. Skulls are fragile so we’ve made a few rules to maintain their good condition. 1. Never use a pen or pencil!! 3. Do not try to carry more than one skull at a time. Do not remove skulls from lab. 4. Please be extra careful handling these rare pieces. There is no excuse for leaving skulls and wires out! 5. The disarticulated skulls (the one in the green box and the “explode-a-skull”) are especially fragile. Skull calvaria and some mandibles can fall off easily – be careful! 5. Always return the skulls to their individual storage container and place the container under the front table of the lab and the wires to theirs (see #2).

see that it is returned to the same container. dry it. and replace it after you’re done. This is a privilege normally reserved for anatomy TA’s only. you will be allowed and encouraged to go into the lab during office hours to study cadaver prosections on your own. Moore’s Clinical Anatomy. therefore. Cadavers are hard to come by and an unbelievable amount of time goes into preparing the prosections. vessel. Completely cover the parts with the cloth (if the cloth is missing or too small – tell a TA) and spray it thoroughly.) it’s possible that it cannot be replaced without money and hours of dissection time. You can use the trays in the cadaver room for moving the cadaver parts to the main lab.D. Place parts carefully in their container – avoid stacking parts on top of one another and snagging other parts. They cannot leave the lab. but it ruins the part). Just be sure to clean the tray with the yellow soap above the sink. Netter’s Atlases.M. Use the phenoxyethanol (in the clear spray bottles above the sink) to keep the parts moist while you are looking at them.Care of Cadaver Parts Unlike the Human Anatomy (Bio 2325) class. Here are the lab rules and some guidelines to keep these parts in good condition so that we can have a quality lab experience. etc. 5. Let’s try to keep the books in good condition – don’t handle them with dirty cadaver hands and keep them away from the phenoxyethanol spray. a muscle ripped. Clean the desk you used with the yellow soap and a sponge when you’re done. That means that other students will suffer the consequences of one person’s carelessness. 4 . Be sure that the lid is closed securely (it should snap). A. Dissectable anatomy software is available on the computers in the computer lab upstairs. There are probes in the first drawer in the cadaver room. the Color Atlas of Human Anatomy as well as other reference books are available in the office for your use. 2. Hooking the probe under a muscle.A. Never rub the probe back and forth on a muscle (it seems almost instinctual. this opportunity requires you to be responsible. If a part is ruined (a nerve or vessel torn. Spray them every few minutes – you can never keep them too moist! When you put the part back. If you take something out of a container (containers will be labeled). 4. spray it again along with all the other parts in the container. Some people don’t like to study on desks speckled with cadaver juice. 3. 7. 8. or nerve is asking for trouble – one slip and they’re gone. 1. The best way to point things out is to simply place the point of the probe a few millimeters above the structure without touching it (thus the word “point”). Never leave a part out. 6.

landmarks. you have to know the material from lecture as well as the structure name.e. Thus. From what branchial arch is this muscle derived? or What spinal levels innervate this muscle?). another midterm practical exam. and a final practical exam. sutures. The first two will take place during a rotation of the day’s lab. 5 . We will use some parts that you’ve never seen before in lab. The final practical exam will take up the whole lab time during the last week of labs.

Using your knowledge of anatomy explain how you would pinpoint the lesion. Clearly explain all manifestations mentioned in the problem.the flexor digitorum profundus is innervated by both the median and ulnar nerves. with the least amount of assumptions. -the ulnar nerve is superficial in a groove posterior to the medial epicondyle of the humerus. corresponding to the location of the laceration. It shows your thought process in a logical sequence. Always start by making a list of the known facts pertinent to the question. Then formulate a logical list of intermediate conclusions that are supported by the known facts (if applicable). Question: While working at the emergency room you examine a child with a large laceration medial to the olecranon. Upon examination you find that her wrist is slightly deviated toward the radius and she is unable to flex the distal interphalangeal joints on both her ring and little fingers. You should also describe any further tests you might perform to further solidify your diagnosis. . . the 6 .slight radial deviation of wrist suggests that ulnar deviation is not totally functional and cannot strike a balance with the radial deviators. is not the only ulnar deviator of the wrist. -the ulnar nerve also innervates the flexor carpi ulnaris. then expand on those knowns. . an ulnar deviator of the wrist. arrive at the most parsimonious final conclusion and diagnose the lesion (problem). that is. Start by listing known facts. Now that you have described your "knowns" and intermediate conclusions based on the knowns. Answer Based on the inability to flex the distal interphalangeal joints of the two digits on the ulnar side of the hand.Damage to the ulnar nerver could cause the paralysis of the ulnar half of the flexor digitorum profundus and flexor carpi ulnaris muscles.flexion of the distal interphalangeal joints is performed by the flexor digitorum profundus. The tendons that attach to the ring and little fingers (usually).slight radial deviation of the wrist suggests that ulnar deviation is not totally functional and cannot strike a balance with the radial deviators. that are related to the information you get from the problem.Sample Problem Set Below is an example of the format and process you should follow to answer the problem set questions. Knowns . however. you must list the knowns and show the logical progression as to how you arrived at your conclusion. -the ulnar nerve innervates the ulnar half of this muscle. This. . Intermediate Conclusions . Then relate how these "knowns" are important in leading to a diagnosis or answer to the problem. You want to arrive at a conclusion in the most parsimonious way. from your anatomical knowledge. Note: You will not get full credit for the problem set if you merely suggest the possible answer and diagnosis.the cutaneous field of the ulnar nerve is the skin on palmar and dorsal surfaces of the hypothenar region and ring and little fingers.

Do not make any assumptions. another ulnar deviator. This is the most parsimonious solution supported by the summary of the related known facts. an ulnar deviator. The prediction is that there is loss of cutaneous sensation in the ulnar cutaneous field (draw a picture to demonstrate). This list should be a columnar list of sentences.lesion must involve damage to the ulnar nerve because this nerve innervates the only muscle that can produce that movement. The slight radial deviation results from paralysis of the flexor carpi ulnaris. use only the information presented in the problem. 7 . The known facts can be obtained from the problem itself and form your knowledge of anatomy related what is stated in the problem. The evaluation of the problem set will be as follows: One point will be given for having a list of clearly stated known facts that are relevant. That is. Your work should be clearly presented and organized. That is. a list of anatomical knowledge that is related to the information presented in the problem. is still functional and helps somewhat counterbalance the three radial deviators . and extensor carpi radialis brevis. extensor carpi radialis longus. One point will be given if the conclusions are clearly supported by the relevant known facts. if you have known facts and conclusions and solutions organized. The reason the wrist exhibits only a slight radial deviation is because the extensor carpi ulnaris. The known facts should be followed with a logical list of conclusions that are supported by the known facts. To further substantiate damage to the ulnar nerve a pinprick test should be used to determine cutaneous sensation. This nerve’s location posterior to the medial epicondyle corresponds to the sight of injury. Use of simple diagrams is recommended. Two points will be given for a worthy effort.the flexor carpi radialis. Problem Set Write-up and Evaluation The following procedures should be used when writing up the answers to the problem sets: Begin by listing the relevant known facts that apply to the problem. One point will be given for arriving at a solid answer or diagnosis. even if you go way off track. It should not be a paragraph. The answer should also include further tests that could help substantiate the diagnosis.
