The chart’s 16 x 38″ graphic depicts the bones of the human skeletal system inside an outline of the human form. Major bones are labeled on the graphic. Overall dimensions, 26 x 39-1/2″.
As one of Carolina’s best sellers, this quality replica of the human skeleton will be an asset to teaching skeletal anatomy in your classroom. Constructed of a durable, unbreakable synthetic material, the skeleton is articulated to show normal posture; the extremities are removable; and the 3-part detachable skull has a cut calvarium, a spring-held lower jaw, and 32 individually inserted teeth.
Altay®. Life size. Model features 3 vertebrae: 1 healthy vertebra, 1 vertebra with pathological changes at first stage, and 1 vertebra with pathological changes at advanced stage. Size, 12 x 12 x 15 cm.
The muscular system is comprised of 3 types of muscle: smooth, skeletal, and cardiac. Not only does this system enable movement of the body, but it also regulates breathing, circulation, and digestion. Learners analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of the muscular system.
Smooth, skeletal (striated), and cardiac muscles are represented in this set of 3 slides. Includes set of 3 study cards.
About 1/2× life size. Shows superficial and deep muscles, blood vessels and nerves, and internal organs, which can be partially dissected.
Learn to identify 5 types of precancerous and cancerous skin lesions using this compact, economical model set. Dysplastic nevus, actinic keratosis, malignant melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma are each depicted on a hinged disk that slides out of sturdy, circular casing.
Assembling this colorful model, students can gain insights into the relationships between the different structures of our skin. This model covers the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue, germinative layer, dermal papilla, hair follicles, cutaneous nerve, sebaceous gland, arrestor pili muscle, sensory nerves, and sweat glands. The kit even includes various skin tones and hair colors so students can personalize their models.
The digestive system has multiple organs such as the stomach, liver, and small intestine. It is responsible for breaking down food into smaller molecules so that nutrients can be easily absorbed. Learners analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
Introduce students to the role of gastric and intestinal enzymes in digestion. Students test the effect of pH, temperature, and concentration on the enzymatic processes and the need for digestion before absorption.
Life size. Dissectible into 3 pieces. Stomach can be opened.
This model offers students a close-up view of tissues within the digestive system. The microanatomy of tissues from the esophagus, stomach, and small and large intestines can be visualized in the 8-part model. Also shows mucous tissue, vessels, and secretory glands.
The function of the urinary system is to maintain proper fluid balance inside the body. The kidneys intertwine with arteries and veins to filter various waste products, such as salts and proteins, from the bloodstream. Learners will analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
Perform common urine tests used by physicians. Analyze urinalysis results and compare to normal ranges of each factor tested. Use data collected to determine potential causes of any abnormal result.
The nervous system is made up of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system. Working together, they collect and interpret data from the body’s internal and external environments. Learners will analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
Sheep brains are the perfect specimens to study mammalian brain structure. Sheep brains share many anatomical similarities to human brains though they are smaller, making them perfect dissection specimens to advance your study of nervous system anatomy.
For a class of 30 students working in small groups. Students participate in activities that demonstrate inaccuracies in sensory perception, including optical illusions, afterimages, odor and taste discrimination, and more.
Students rotate through 10 activity stations to analyze their own hearing while studying the physiology of human hearing and the physics of sound. Using their classmates as subjects, students perform tests for bone conduction, auditory acuity, and sound localization. Students also learn about the structure of the ear, how each part of the ear contributes to the sense of hearing, and how loud noises over an extended period can cause hearing loss. In addition, they learn about the properties of sound waves and how sound waves affect the pitch and amplitude of sound.
The Carolina™ Cutaneous Sensations Kit is perfect for a class of 24 students working in small groups. Using an inked grid stamp and specialized stimulator probes, students investigate and compare the density and distribution of sensory receptors for touch, pressure, heat, and cold at various skin locations. With detailed instruction booklet.
The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the body’s immunity to disease and pathogens. It’s responsible for allergic reactions as well as fighting diseases that range from the common cold to cancer. Learners will analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
Use this innovative model to help your students gain an understanding of the cellular interactions of the immune system. They will make models of helper T cells, cytotoxic T cells, B cells, plasma cells, antibodies, cytokines, memory cells, and phagocytes. The learning activity then shows them how these immune cells interact to protect us from pathogens. In the process, they will cover key concepts, including innate immunity, adaptive immunity, immunological memory, clonal expansion, antigen specificity, antigen presentation, and MHC.
The human body’s internal physiological control is provided by the endocrine system, which produces a variety of hormones responsible for regulating processes such as growth, heart rate, blood pressure, the sleep-wake cycle, metabolism, and reproduction. Learners will analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
Altay®. About life size. This plaque mount features individual representations of pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, and parathyroid glands, plus a testis and a dissected ovary with fallopian tubes and associated structures. With key.
Explore the effects of Type 2 diabetes using miniature models of the brain, eye, kidney, heart, pancreas, neuron, foot, and an enlarged model of an artery. Each model illustrates the consequences of Type 2 diabetes. Stroke due to infarction in the brain; ocular pathologies, such as retinal edema and narrowed arterioles; atherosclerosis of the arteries; nephrosclerosis of the kidney; heart attack due to myocardial infarction; insulin resistance; neuropathy; and foot ulcers and gangrene are depicted in this model set.
The male and female reproductive systems are controlled by hormones produced by the pituitary gland and the reproductive organs themselves. Organs in the reproductive system make, mature, and store gametes, which provide genetic variation through sexual reproduction. Learners will analyze and understand the structures, functions, and disorders of this system.
