What can we say? Without the Larynx, not a great deal! With this BIOX you will be guided through the anatomical structures of the Pharynx, Larynx, and Eosophagus.
This specimen features an array of anatomical gems that will keep you elbows deep in knowledge and ...tissues! Lets travel down the pharynx through its three domains. Stop off at the tongue - this protruding boneless mass that you can curl and bend at will is extraordinary - its one of the few muscles which makes its anchorage through others muscles and not forgetting the frenulum! Why do you get tongue tied? Find out in this BIOX. On to the Larynx! dissect to view the infra hyoid muscles, expose the glowing thyroid cartilage and use two point discrimination to navigate inferiorly to the laryngeal prominence and cricoid cartilage. Move the larynx to mimic the action of swallowing and enhance your understanding of one of the most basic functions necessary for life. The Oesophagus is one not to be missed, dissect out and pick apart the circular and longitudinal layers of the smooth muscle, squeeze out its contents mimicking peristalsis - by the end you will be lost for words!
