Sigma KEE - BodyPart
A collection of Cells and Tissues which are localized to a specific area of an Organism and which are not pathological. The instances of this Class range from gross structures to small components of complex Organs.
Parents AnatomicalStructure A normal or pathological part of the anatomy or structural organization of an Organism. This class covers BodyParts, as well as structures that are given off by Organisms, e.g. ReproductiveBodies.
Children AnimalShellA hard shell of calcium that serves as a supporting structure for some Invertebrates.
 BodyCavityAny BodyPart which contains an unfilled space, e.g. BodyVessels, the atria and ventricles of the heart, the lungs, etc.
 BodyCoveringAny BodyPart which is a covering of another BodyPart or of an entire Organism. This would include the rinds of FruitOrVegetables and the skins of Animals.
 BodyJunctionThe place where two BodyParts meet or connect.
 BodySegmenta part of the body that is capable of some degree of intentional independent motion from some other part of the body to which it is connected.
 BoneParts of the body that are made up of BoneTissue.
 CellThe fundamental structural and functional unit of living Organisms.
 CellPartpart of a Cell
 ChinA part of the Face which protrudes slightly and which is lower than all other parts of the Face.
 CorneaTThe biological lens of the Eye that focuses light on the Retina.
 DigitAppendageAny of the extremities of Limbs that are found in the higer Vertebrates and the Amphibians.
 EardrumIn the anatomy of humans and various other tetrapods, the eardrum, also called the tympanic membrane or myringa, is a thin, cone-shaped membrane that separates the external ear from the middle ear. Its function is to transmit sound from the air to the ossicles inside the middle ear, and then to the oval window in the fluid-filled cochlea. Hence, it ultimately converts and amplifies vibration in the air to vibration in cochlear fluid. The MalleusBone bridges the gap between the eardrum and the other ossicles. Rupture or perforation of the eardrum can lead to conductive hearing loss. Collapse or retraction of the eardrum can cause conductive hearing loss or cholesteatoma. [from Wikipedia]
 ExoskeletonThe system of Bones that are on the Outside of an organism and make up the supporting structure of many Invertebrates.
 EyebrowA part of the Face above each Eye that typically has Hair.
 FaceThe part of the Head from forehead to chin and from ear to ear.
 FeatherEach instance of this class is one of the structures that make up the external covering of Birds.
 ForeheadThe region of the front of the Head above the eyes and forward of the hairline or scalp.
 FrontalLobeThe frontal lobe, which is located in the front of the head, is the largest section of the brain. It plays a role in many conscious functions, including personality and movement. It also helps the brain interpret smells.
 HeadThe part of the body containing the sense organs and the brain.
 HoofThe hard end of the Foot of a HoofedMammal.
 HumanBackThe back of the Torso of a Human.
 HypothalamusThe part of the Brain lying below the thalamus that serves to regulate AutonomicProcesses.
 JawThe lower part of the Mouth of an Animal. It is involved in Chewing and creating an opening of the Mouth suitable for Breathing in Mammals. Motion of the jaw is involved in Speaking in Humans.
 LimbAny of the limbs of a Vertebrate. Animal Appendages with joints that are used for movement and grasping.
 LipFolds of Tissue surrounding the mouths of some Vertebrates.
 MedullaThis is the lowest part of the brainstem. It helps control Heart and Lung function.
 MouthPart of the Face, used for Ingesting Food and Vocalizing.
 MuscleA normal or pathological part of the anatomy or structural organization of an Organism. This class covers BodyParts, as well as structures that are given off by Organisms, e.g. ReproductiveBodies.
 NasalSeptumThe nasal septum divides the NavalCavity into two parts, one leading from each Nostril.
 NeckThe part of the body that connects the Head to the rest of the body.
 OccipitalLobesPositioned near the back of the brain, the occipital lobe primarily interprets vision signals.
 OrganA somewhat independent BodyPart that performs a specialized function. Note that this functional definition covers bodily systems, e.g. the digestive system or the central nervous system.
 ParietalLobeSituated in the middle of the brain, the parietal lobe supports the identification of objects and spatial reasoning. It also plays a role in interpreting pain and touch signals.
 PlantBranchThe stem of a Plant or any shoot arising from the stem of a Plant.
 PonsLocated above the medulla in the brainstem, this area helps control eye and facial movement.
 ReproductiveBodyReproductive structure of Organisms. Consists of an Embryonic Object and a nutritive/protective envelope. Note that this class includes seeds, spores, and FruitOrVegetables, as well as the eggs produced by Animals.
 ShoulderThe part of a Primate between the Arm and the neck.
 SkeletonThe system of Bones that make up the supporting structure of Vertebrates.
 TemporalLobesLocated on either side of the brain, the temporal lobes play a role in numerous functions, including speech, scent recognition, and short-term memory.
 ToeThe five extremities of a Foot.
 TonguePart of the Mouth, used for Tasting Food, Vocalizing, and the initial stage of Digesting.
 TorsoThe body of a Primate excluding its Limbs.
 VirusPartThe class of structures which are typically found or may be found in viruses.
 VocalFoldA smooth muscle found in pairs and comprising the VocalCords.
 WaistThe waist is the part of the abdomen between the rib cage and hips. On proportionate people, the waist is the narrowest part of the torso.
 XyphiodProcessxyphiod process
