MCAT Basics Podcast

The Lymphatic System

This MCAT podcast covers the lymphatic system. Sam and Alex first talk about the anatomy of the lymphatic system and then get into its three main functions:

  1. Returning materials and fluid to the blood
  2. Supporting the immune system
  3. Absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients

Lastly, Alex talks about some exciting research that is going on to investigate the connection between the brain and the lymphatic system.
