Throughout history there have been many descriptions of human copulatory behavior. Most of them belong to the fine arts, some to pornography and a few to the medical sciences. Descriptions satisfying some minimum requirements of objectivity and accuracy are more rare. Without discrediting the early pioneers in sex research, I will start my analysis of copulatory behavior with the extraordinary data collected by Alfred Kinsey and colleagues and published in two landmark books (Kinsey et al.,...

The superficial lymphatics of the head and neck drain the skin into the superficial lymph nodes located around the neck and along the external and anterior jugular veins. Superficial lymphatics include the submental, submandibular and facial, external jugular, anterior...

Internal Anatomy Of The Heart

A cross section cut through the heart reveals three layers (Fig. 7) (1) a superficial visceral pericardium or epicardium (epi upon + heart) (2) a middle myocardium (myo muscle + heart) and (3) a deep lining called the endocardium (endo within, derived from the endoderm layer of the embryonic trilamina). The endocardium is a sheet of epithelium called endothelium that rests on a thin layer of connective tissue basement membrane. It lines the heart chambers and makes up the valves of the heart....

Reproductive biology

Most species have separate sexes, but some are partheno-genetic (female clones) throughout parts of their geographic range. Males have courtship rituals to entice the female to pick up a spermatophore, which is deposited on a web spun by the male in all centipedes, except Scutigeromorpha. A male initiates courtship, tapping the female's posterior legs with his antennae this tapping ritual may last many hours. The female touches the web with the posterior end of her body so that the...
