Cookies are used routinely by almost every website you might visit, for a variety of purposes. For example if you keep using this site, we'll assume you agree to all of the following, and we will create a cookie so we know that you've already agreed to this policy next time you come to the website. If you don't agree, then you can simply leave the website (but we'd rather you stayed!).
Measuring our visitors - We measure visitors to our website using Google Analytics. This records things like which pages you view within the site, how you arrived here, and some basic information about your computer (like whether you're using a desktop computer, or which internet browser you use). All of this information is anonymous – so we don’t know who you are; only that somebody visited the site. The information helps us understand which parts of our sites are doing well, and which could be improved.
Facebook, Twitter and other social networks - These services provide links which we use on this website. If you use their services, they'll generally know if you’re logged in, and that you visited this site. We don't have any access to their information or cookie use.
In this section we've added a few alternative study aids to help you along.
- Articles - Here you'll find a range of short articles on basic anatomy and physiology topics, complete with a few 'test yourself' questions for each one.
- Images and pdf's - Just in case you get tired of looking at the screen we've provided images and pdf files that you can print out and use for 'off-line' practice.
- Word Roots - When you learn the word roots, prefixes and suffixes contained within anatomical and medical terms, you can often work out what they mean. This can be a useful skill as you progress in your studies, so we've provided a dictionary to help you!
- Games - Finally in the resources section, we've added some simple games to make anatomy and physiology practice a little bit more fun.
