Lecture no. 23 from the course: Understanding the Human Body: An Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, 2nd Edition
Taught by Professor Anthony A. Goodman | 45 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
This is the first of two lectures on the urinary system. We examine the anatomy of the kidneys, the ureters, and the bladder. We consider the kidneys' major functioning unit—the nephron. The lecture concludes by reviewing the conduits through which urine passes before excretion from the body.
