Gunther von Hagens, the world's leading expert in human dissection, reveals the kinetic framework of the body in this program as well as the neural expressway that enables the structure to move. Von Hagens' dissection shows how the skeleton operates like a system of levers, giving viewers a detailed look at the shape, composition, and mobility of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Special attention is also given to the brain and spinal cord, both of which von Hagens carefully exposes and removes. The cortex, corpus callosum, basal ganglion, and other brain parts are identified, along with the flexibility and protection provided by the spinal column.

Viewer discretion is advised. Contains clinically explicit language and demonstrations.
