About Us

Learnbones.com is a premier rescource for students of anatomy. The site offers relevant information on the bones of the human body in a concise and pertinant manner. Many of the images displayed are from Grays Anatomy, the ultimate text book for students. We have started offering information on various bone disease to give a broader knowledge to those interested in human anatomy. We have also decided to expand the knowledge contained on this site to include the  muscles of the human body. This is a large project to undertake and we expect to have this completed within a few months.
