It’s time to kick off the summer with a new type of quiz! I haven’t dissected in awhile, but I recently got the opportunity to whip out a scalpel and scissors again. I forgot how satisfying it is to gently tear through fascia and reveal the structures underneath. I would make a terrible surgeon because I have little interest in vessels or nerves – I’m all about the muscles. Of course, this appreciation for musculature is nothing new.
1. The appendage (there’s a punny hint in the paragraph above);
2.The superior-most tendons visible in the dissection shown below (the ones heading for digits 2-5);
3. The bone visible at the very base of the photo (it is still covered in fat and soft tissue).
Answers below the jump.
