Human specimen images
By riyah h. on 17. March 2018 for Physical Principles That Influence Blood Circulation – Blood vessels and blood circulation

Explanation was simplified which then made understanding of the topic at hand simplistic. However, an opinion of mine would be that human specimen images should be shown before the explanation rather than later on in the lecture .
