Dissecting went well yesterday. Pretty cool really. My partner and I dissected the left, posterior, upper limb. After about 6 hours of work, all that remains to be done is a small amount of "clean-up". There is still a very small amount of adipose tissue to remove from the area where the long head of the triceps brachii goes under the teres minor, heading for it's origin. There is also a small amount of adipose tissue at the termination point of the triceps brachii. Really about an hour of very careful work...we don't want to cut any muscles or tendons!

I'm actually a little disappointed. Because of the lack of available cadavers, each team dissects one small area...and we are done. I would really like to be able to do more, but it's not possible.
