The Virtual Body

Unless one is a medical resident, it can be quite difficult to get a close- up look at a skeleton, a brain, or even the inner workings of the digestive tract. Students of the medical sciences and others need worry no more, as this very fine interactive exhibit offers up dynamic images and cross- sections of these parts of the anatomy and many more to boot. The site contains four sections, including “Brain”, “Skeleton”, “Heart”, and “Digestive Tract”. In the “Heart” area, visitors can learn about the individual parts of the heart, view an animated heart, and also take a narrated tour of the heart that will “keep your heart beating.” Moving on, the “Skeleton” section features the “Bones Narrated” tour, which will take visitors on a guided tour of the skeleton and its functions.
