Online information

The following is a list of online resources you can look at to get information about body systems. This information has either been purchase through our access to online databases, or we have vetted the sites for their validity, reliability, and accuracy.

  • EbscoHost (Student Resource Center)
    You'll find information in here on the various components of the body system. Click on Student Resource Center for easiest navigation.
  • Encyclopedia Britannica
    Britannica has great general information on each of the body systems.
  • Grolier Online
    Grolier Online features several articles on volcanoes, arranged by reading level. For a bigger challenge, switch to high school at the top.
  • Science Online
    Want something a little more intellectually rigorous? Try Science Online. The essays on the various body systems are thorough.
  • The Human Body
    Several learning modules on the human body, from Science Online.

The Circulatory System

From Science Online: The circulatory system governs the circulation of blood around the body.

The Digestive System

From Science Online: The purpose of the digestive system is to take food into the body and convert it to a usable form that can be transported throughout the body.

  • The digestive system
    This is a summary of the digestive system from Science Online.
  • The digestive system
    This is another summary of the digestive system, this time from Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • Common problems of the digestive system
    There are many conditions that affect the way the body digests food. Two common conditions are lactose intolerance and malabsorption.
  • Nutrition and major nutrients
    Why do humans have to eat?
  • Minor nutrients and metabolism
    Although sugars, proteins, and fats receive a lot of attention in discussions of nutrition, vitamins and minerals also play a vital role in our diet. This article examines these nutrients and also includes a brief discussion of the way we actually extract energy from nutrients through biochemical pathways.

The Excretory System

From Science Online: The major functions of the excretory system are the removal of nitrogenous wastes from the body and osmoregulation.

The Immune System

 The lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, thymus, tonsils, and spleen that work in conjunction with the circulatory system to transport extracellular fluid; the lymph organs aid in immune defense against microbial infection and cancer.

  • Immune system overview
    This is an overview of the immune system from Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • Immune system
    From Science Online, this is the first of a series of articles on the Immune System.
  • Immune system disorders
    From Science Online, this article discusses some of the disorders that can affect the immune system.

The Musculoskeletal system

From Science Online: The musculoskeletal system comprises the muscular and the skeletal systems. The purpose of the muscular system is locomotion or movement. The functions of the skeletal system are to provide structural support, protect the body's internal organs, and aid in movement by providing a simple mechanical lever system against which the muscles work.

  • The musculoskeletal system
    From Science Online, this article on the musculoskeletal system provides a great overview of how it operates.
  • Muscles
    This is another entry on the musculoskeletal system, this time from Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • Skeletal Muscles
    skeletal muscles work in opposing pairs to move the skeleton and, therefore, the body.
  • Skeletal and muscular systems
    Although bones and muscles each have other important functions, they primarily work together to move the parts of the body. Muscle is the only tissue in the body that has the ability to contract, or shorten, so all body movements involve muscle of some kind. The kind of muscle that works with the bones of the skeletal system is called skeletal muscle, and unlike other kinds of muscle, it is under voluntary control-we can make it contract at will.
  • Skeletal system
    From Encyclopedia Britannica, this is an article on the skeletal system.
  • Skeleton
    An overview of the skeleton, from Encyclopedia Britannica.

The Nervous System

From Science Online: A ramifying system of cells, found in all animals except sponges, that forms a communication system between receptors and effectors and allows varying degrees of coordination of information from different receptors and stored memory, producing integrated responses to stimuli.

The Respiratory System

The respiratory system enables the exchange of air and the transport of oxygen through the lungs into the circulatory system.

The Skin System

From Science Online: A primary function of skin is forming a barrier that protects the body from dehydration. In fact, the biggest threat to survival for terrestrial animals is dehydration, and the waterproof nature of skin keeps fluids and other important substances inside. Skin also protects the entire body from physical or external injury (bumps, abrasions, and cuts), as well as chemical damage (acids and bases). In addition, skin shields us from continual bacterial invasion and ultraviolet radiation in sunlight.

  • The skin system
    This article from Science Online presents the skin system and how it operates.
  • The skin system
    This is another overview of the skin system, this time from Encyclopedia Britannica.
  • Common skin diseases
    From Science Online, this article discusses common skin diseases.
  • The skin
    The outermost covering of body tissue that weighs twice as much as the brain—about six to nine pounds, stretching over 18 square feet. It is also a sensory organ, and contains many cells sensitive to touch, temperature, pain, pressure, and itching. The skin protects the internal organs and keeps the body at the correct temperature—not too warm and not too cold.

Welcome to Your Brain - Sandra Aamodt; Sam Wang
Call Number: 612.8 AAM
ISBN: 1596912839
Publication Date: 2008-03-04
We are using our brains at practically every moment of our lives, and yet few of us have the first idea how they work. Much of what we think we know comes from folklore: that we only use 10 percent of our brain, or that drinking kills brain cells. These and other brain myths are wrong, as demonstrated by the work of neuroscientists who have spent decades studying this complex organ. However, most of what scientists have learned is not known to the world outside their laboratories.

In this readable, lively book, Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang dispel common myths about the brain and provide a comprehensive, useful overview of how it really works. In its pages, you'll discover how to cope with jet lag, how your brain affects your religion, and how men's and women's brains differ. With witty, accessible prose decorated by charts, trivia, quizzes, and illustrations, this book is great for quick reference or extended reading.

Both practical and fun, Welcome to Your Brain is perfect whether you want to impress your friends or simply use your brain better.
