This blog was started in January 2009 in the hopes of supplementing the lectures and lab for Professor Houska's Anatomy class at Saddleback. Check the archives to the left and click on January 2009. That should get you where you need to go! If the music annoys you after awhile, just scroll down and silence the pop-out player on the left.
Don't forget to check out the videos and the lectures posted as well.
Happy studying!

PS Houska rocked!

Take an online quiz or two on the endocrine system:

Let's not forget Marian Diamond at UC Berkeley. This link contains 3 0r 4 lectures on the endocrine system. It starts with #36, but it seems to be in the middle of a lecture. I think that the end of #35 may contain the missing info. Search for it on Youtube and leave a comment if you find the missing piece.

Several links to anatomy sites:
This site is compliments of McGraw Hill and contains some great interactive tutorials as well as quizzes and flashcards. Terrific resource!
