Brain-Friendly Muscle Viewer
The Brain-Friendly Muscle Viewer (BFMV) app helps you study and memorize the muscles of the human body. It is designed to match the textbook Mastering Muscles & Movement, and it allows you to easily compare and contrast images and text using the MMM brain-friendly approach.

When you click/tap on the icon to the right, a new browser tab will open to run the BFMV app. To exit the app when you are finished, simply close the browser tab.

Using the Brain-Friendly Muscle Viewer

The BFMV is a web app that runs in the browser on phones, tablets or computers. Note that due to the level of detail displayed in this app, some smartphone screens may be too small for effectively viewing the information. Muscles are studied in groups, as organized in the textbook. Below are some sample screens from the BFMV.
