Crash Course - The Skeletal System (2015)Today Hank explains the skeletal system and why astronauts Scott Kelly and Mikhail Kornienko are out in space studying it. He talks about the anatomy of the skeletal system, including the flat, short, and irregular bones, and their individual arrangements of compact and spongy bone. He'll also cover the microanatomy of bones, particularly the osteons and their inner lamella. And finally he will introduce the process of bone remodeling, which is carried out by crews of osteocytes, osteoblasts, and osteoclasts.
Crash Course - The Respiratory System (2015)So we all know that breathing is pretty important, right? Today we're going to talk about how it works, starting with the nameless evolutionary ancestor that we inherited this from, and continuing to the mechanics of both simple diffusion and bulk flow, as well as the physiology of breathing, and finishing with the anatomy of both the conducting zone and the respiratory zone of your respiratory system.
Crash Course - The Endocrine System (2015)Hank begins teaching you about your endocrine system by explaining how it uses glands to produce hormones. These hormones are either amino-acid based and water soluble, or steroidal and lipid-soluble, and may target many types of cells or just turn on specific ones. He will also touch on hormone cascades, and how the HPA axis effects your stress response.

The Kidney 2 | Homeostasis | GCSE Biology (9-1) | kayscience.comIn the kidney blood enters the bowman’s capsule via a network of capillaries called the
glomerulus. Smaller molecules like urea, glucose and water are filtered out of the blood and into the Bowman’s capsule of the nephron. Larger molecules such as red blood cells and proteins remain in the blood in the glomerulus.
