Dissect-it-yourself page

Self dissection of items of the human body

 

 

On this page links are provided for pages containing dissection schedule for all aspect of the human body. Dissection is initiated by clicking on the images or icons on the pages containing the dissections to be dissected. Automatic dissections proceed on their own without clicking and they are called dissectors.
