This video from 1987 is fun to watch just to see how Jon Zahourek thinks—and observes. In less than a minute, he covers so much ground. Scapula. Glenohumeral joints. Thorax. Clavicle. And a horse comparison for good measure—comparative anatomy. Form and function. Always. . . . . . #anatomyinclay #insightswithjonzahourek #anatomyinsights #brachiatingscapulae #clavicle #scapula #glenohumeraljoints #thorax #comparativeanatomy

Check this brief, interesting video clip below from Jon Zahourek looking at the comparisons between horse and human tibiotalar joints. You can practically feel the strength and power in the horse as Jon demonstrates the “tremendous mortising” and “tremendous design” of the horse’s tibiotalar joint.
Once again, we are here to round up all the anatomy new that’s fit to blog about! Here are some recent items worth noting: Diet & Speech One of the very coolest stories recently should have been page one news. This one is pretty wild. Scientists recently announced research showing that man’s progress into agriculture changed the way the human jaw is shaped and that shift, in turn, expanded the range of our vocal sounds. Yes, the advent of crops led to the introduction of soft
If you are passionate about the science and study of human anatomy, you no doubt have an alert set up through Google that will help you keep track of what’s new. You don’t have one? It’s easy to set one up: https://www.google.com/alerts Try entering the phrases ‘human anatomy’ or ‘comparative anatomy’ or a combination like ‘human anatomy + science.’ These search phrases cast a pretty wide net, but you’ll be able to easily spot what is relevant to your needs, returned to you
You can’t begin to understand human anatomy unless you also acknowledge that human beings (that’s us primates!) are quadrupeds. We are animals. You can’t take the study of anatomy out of the zoological context. And, therefore, evolution. We recently asked Anatomy in Clay® Learning System founder Jon Zahourek to chat about this issue as he was preparing to teach four classes at the CorePower® Yoga Leadership Summit in Estes Park. The beautiful mountain setting doesn’t matter e
