Dissections in this website are performed in artificial/imaginary layers- mostly in seven layers from skin to bone. They consist of the following, but some may be presscribed  with 20 layers in the face and neck and 10 or more in palm and sole.


Typical layers taken from dissections in the human anatomy museum

Layer 1- skin layer

Layer 2- superficial fascia layer

Layer 3- superficial muscles layer

Layer 4- intermediate muscle layer

Layer 5- deep muscle layer

Layer 6- layer of joint

Layer 7- bones layer

The above layers have been as adapted for electronic use and hence they may be referred to as electronic layers or elayers for use in dissectors -both elementary and advanced dissectors (automatic dissecting machines) and digital locators (machines that locate structures with help of elayers) and dissect-it-yourself machines (designed for self dissections of structures).
