When I'm watching videos about the human body, why does the left side of the body appear on the right side of my computer screen and vice-versa?
Videos about the human body take place inside the anatomical figure, the standard reference figure that is used in science to depict anatomical structures and locations. In the standard anatomical position the anatomical figure is facing forward, the feet are on the floor slightly apart, the arms hang downward near its sides, the hands are open and the palms face forward. When viewing the figure from the front the left side of the figure is your right side and the right side of the figure is your left side. Variations of the standard anatomical position are used in the Biol-O-Gee R.A.P.™ videos to create emphasis and/or to simplify complicated processes.
