The Tubular Organs video is an overview of the layers and structures that make up tubular organs within animals.
The Oral Cavity video examines the structure and function of the lips, cheek, tongue (mechanical and gustatory papillae), developing and maturing teeth, and palate.
The Tooth Development video discusses the development of the brachydont tooth, histology of the developing tooth/mature tooth, and compares the hypsodont tooth.
The Esophagus video discusses the structure and function of the esophagus by examining multiple specimens and comparing differences amongst the domestic species. Includes discussion and examination of avian esophagus and crop.
The Simple Stomach video examines the structure and function of the simple stomach; focuses on the esophageal, cardiac, proper gastric, and fundic gland regions; and identifies the mucous neck cells, parietal, and peptic cells.
The Ruminant Stomach video examines the microscopic structure and function of the ruminant stomach (rumen, reticulum and omasum, true stomach, and abomasum), discusses the reticular groove, and examines traumatic reticulopericarditis. The video also considers the structure and function of the llama/alpaca stomach.
The Avian Stomach video examines the microscopic structure and function of the proventriculus (glandular stomach) and the ventriculus (gizzard) of the bird.
The Intestines video examines the structure and function of the small intestines (duodenum, jejunum, ileum) and large intestine (colon, rectum, anal canal), and discusses characteristics that help differentiate segments of the intestine and portions of the digestive tract.
The Anal Canal video covers the structure of the anal canal and the function of the anal glands, circumanal glands (superficial, deep), and anal sac.
