In this section, we can see illustrations related to the anatomy and physiology of the human body. Anatomy studies the structure and shape of the body, as well as its parts or organs and the relationships between them. Physiology is the study of the function of the human body, it studies how the body and its parts work at both the microscopic and macroscopic levels.
The anatomy and physiology of the human body are organized at different levels. It is composed of apparatuses and these are composed of systems. System: is the group of organs that are formed by the same types of tissues. For example: the skeletal system, the cardiovascular system, and the nervous system, among others. Apparatus: a group of organs that have a common function and its organs do not have predominance of any tissue, for example, locomotor, digestive, respiratory, urinary, genital, endocrine, and circulatory systems.

Abdomen and Pelvis. These illustrations are focused on the human body cavity located between the lower face of the thorax and the upper face of the pelvis.
Skeletal System. Illustrations that are essentially focused on the solid structure that supports the most important internal organs, and obviously, the soft tissues.
Dermatology. Illustrations focused on the structure and the different layers that make up the skin. On the other hand, how the different types of diseases are manifested in it.
