Spinal Column, often referred to as the spine, is a column of bones called
vertebrae. It protects the spinal cord. This section features a wide variety of anatomical
models. The first three pages contain anatomical models of the human spinal
column. The next three present the vertebrae.
Many of the models present the vertebrae in sets: the cervical spinal column
vertebrae, the thoracic spinal column vertebrae and the lumbar spinal
column vertebrae. Both sets of pages begin with the most simple
models. As you proceed through them, the models generally more
detailed and/or specialized.
