Understanding Our Five Senses Video Series

Using colorful illustrations and graphic animation sequences, this video series explores the phenomena of sight, hearing, smell, taste, and touch. Designed for use at the middle or secondary level, the videos examine the scientific processes by which stimuli from outside or inside the body are received and processed. Each program details the structure and function of the sense organs and related parts of the body, supplemented by information on common sensory disorders and safety tips. Interviews and real-world analogies add to the viewer's understanding of the complex workings of the senses. The programs are divided into segments for easy lesson planning, with helpful recaps at the end of each segment.

Winner of two Videographer Awards of Distinction for educational video and animation. Telly Award Winner.

Topics covered include: basic tastes; the influence of temperature on flavor; how gustation works; and the important role of saliva in the process. Physicians describe factors that lead to the inability to taste, and emphasize the importance of caring for the tongue and taste buds. 22 minutes. © 2001.  03-V04-W  89.00  
Ouch! Touch & Touching The sense of touch is vital to human survival, and is critical to our emotional well-being. This program examines the integumentary system and the functions of skin, hair, and nails. It also describes the function of nerve endings and the sense of pain. Other topics include: reasons for loss of feeling, including strokes; the damaging effects of the sun; and the effects of alcohol, tobacco, and other substances. 27 minutes. © 2001.  03-V04-W  89.00

Human Heart - This fascinating journey into the human heart features state-of-the-art 3D animation, vividly illustrating the heart's basic structure and function. Succinct and well organized, the video combines easy-to-follow narrative with dynamic imagery. Physicians and other health experts discuss the mechanics of the heart and explain how nutrition, exercise and smoking affect this vital muscle.

The video is divided into three main segments:

I. The Heart's Parts – reveals the heart's basic structure, including chambers, valves, coronary circulation, and the conductive system.

II. The Heart at Work – explains the circulation process, pulmonary and systemic circulation, and diastole vs. systole.

III. Heart Smarts – investigates heart health, including advice on maintaining a strong heart and circulatory system.

Designed specifically for classroom use, this teacher-friendly learning tool minimizes technical jargon and clearly explains each learning point. Key information is restated throughout the video, and comprehensive reviews follow each section. Paced for easy note-taking and clear understanding, the program is also loaded with exciting graphics and animations which make it fun to watch. 25 minutes. © 2002.

Amazing Adventures Inside The Human Body Series

Featuring highly detailed and colorful graphic animation, this video series takes the viewer on a virtual tour of the systems of the human body. Each program introduces one of the body's major systems, describes structure and function of the organs and other components of the system, illustrates key processes carried out by the system, and reveals the “amazing adventures” inside the body that support seemingly routine activities such as moving, breathing, eating and feeling.

Interviews with experts (biologist, cardiologist, family practitioner, internist, and gastroenterologist) provide insight into the remarkable processes and functions of these intricate systems. Each program includes discussion of common disorders and diseases, along with advice on keeping the body's systems running smoothly. Grades 7-12.

The Digestive System: Down the Hatch! How does a slice of pizza provide fuel for the body? From the salivary glands in the mouth, through the stomach, small intestine, large intestine and colon, this video follows both the mechanical and chemical processes of digestion that turn food into nutrients and vitamins the body can absorb. Also discussed are disorders such as upset stomach, ulcers, acid reflux, eating disorders, and cancer, along with the importance of healthy eating. 25 minutes.

 The Nervous System: The Ultimate Control Center It is one of the body's most sophisticated systems, and it controls just about everything we do. This program explores voluntary and autonomic functions, the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and the network of nerves and other structures which make up the peripheral nervous system. Also discussed: the parts of the brain, the components of a neuron (dendrite, nucleus, and axon), as well as how signal impulses and synapses work. The program also touches on some possible problems with the system, including meningitis, Parkinson's disease, strokes and injuries. 26 minutes. © 2001.    03-V22-W


The Respiratory System: Take a Deep Breath! Did you know we breathe in about 13 pints of air every minute? This program takes a deep look into the importance of oxygen, the process of respiration and cellular respiration, and the important connection between the respiratory and circulatory systems. Animations help to illustrate the functions of the nose, larynx, pharynx, trachea, bronchi, lungs, as well as the role of the diaphragm. Experts discuss colds, asthma, emphysema, lung cancer and the detrimental effects of smoking on this delicate system. 22 minutes. © 2001.    03-V23-W


The Circulatory System: Go with the Flow! The circulatory system works like a network of highways, superhighways, and narrow streets. But in this case, the highways are a means of delivering nutrients to major organs and carrying away wastes and toxins. Using this analogy, the video explains and illustrates the systemic and pulmonary routes, the structure and function of the heart, the network of arteries and veins, as well as the different roles and components of blood. Other topics include blood pressure, anemia, leukemia, heart failure and heart attack, the effects of cocaine and smoking on the heart, and the vital role of exercise in maintaining a healthy heart. 26 minutes. © 2001.    03-V24-W
