‘Visible Body’ is an online resource, now available to London Met staff and students. It is an interactive human anatomy atlas that allows users to manipulate the torso and strip away layers to reveal muscles, nerves, skeletal structure etc., and to see how these components relate. It covers anatomy, physiology, muscles, the skeleton, and the circulatory system through interactive 3D models, animations, quizzes, and more.
Although the purchase was made predominantly for the School of Human Sciences, we are sure it has the potential to be a great resource for any Cass students who might be using the human body in some way in their work.
It can be used on Desktop computers, but there are also apps available for some mobile devices.
Follow the link on the libraries A-Z of e-resources, and enter your university username and password as usual to access it.
We have put together a selection of books and other materials from Aldgate library on anatomy and figure drawing to complement the online resource, including some synthetic human skin that can be found in our materials and products library!
