What happens when people sleep? How does the heart beat? This CD-ROM offers an interactive journey inside the human body to discover what every part of the body is called, where it is situated, what it looks like, and how it functions. Through three intuitive search paths: "The body machine" explains how the body carries out complex processes such as seeing and hearing, using interactive questions and answers; "The body organs" focuses on the body's individual components; "The body systems" shows how the organs work together to perform important functions. This blend of 3-D images, microphotography, illustrations, animations, sounds, and text shows how the body works. There are 90000 words of spoken and written text, more than 1000 illustrations, over 700 screens and pop-up windows, over 100 animations and 45 minutes of audio. To run these CD-ROMS, an IBM or compatible PC is needed with: 386SX/25 MHz or faster microprocessor with 4Mb RAM, MPC-compatible CD-ROM drive and sound card, SVGA 256-colour display, a mouse, loudspeakers or headphones, and Microsoft Windows version more
