Question Description

Can someone explain to me what all the terms, ventral, medial, lateral, posterior, etc. mean? I'm really struggling with names.

Medial is the center/middle of the body, like between your eyes or your crotch. 

Lateral is away from the medial. The ears are lateral to the eyes, get it? 

Dorsal (aka. posterior) is the back, like the butt. 

Ventral (aka. anterior) is the front, like the face.
