Anatomy Quizzes & Trivia

In this quiz we’ll take another look at the human anatomy, with specific reference to the study of kinesiology – also known as the science of bodily movement. What can you tell us about the different planes associated with certain parts of the body? Let’s find out in this quiz on anatomy and kinesiology – chapter 3!
