The discipline of anatomy has had a pivotal influence on the history of medicine as it serves almost as the language of medicine. This concept has not been changed till today, but the modalities that we use to understand the subject have been significantly changed. This book is unique in that the essential contents are put together allowing one to browse through anatomical knowledge on a daily basis. It should also satisfy anyone who believes that medical faculty must follow a system which is educationally sound. Developing an excellent anatomy curriculum, assessment system, and anatomy resource centre are key to success that will allow us to address the question of "how do we teach anatomy?" If we have to continue teaching an important subject such as anatomy to medical students, we must be innovative in terms of our approach of teaching in the presence of decreased contact hours to fulfil the curricular need of more integration. This book will target medical educationists and students who may find it easier to develop concepts in gross anatomy, embryology, histology and neuroanatomy. Since planning learning experiences, their implementation and student assessment, are closely related activities, care is taken to develop a process for clinically-oriented multiple choice questions in anatomy that satisfy the theme and objectives of anatomy. The issues related to laboratory activities have also been addressed so as to emphasise objective-structured practical examination that is integrated and clinically relevant during the early period of the medical curriculum. The students' perception has been brought to our attention and given a great focus. This book for the first time addresses education in anatomy and provides a great resource for medical schools engaged in problem-based learning or integrated systems curriculums.
The inner ear originates from an ectodermal thickening, the otic placode, which lies adjacent to the developing hindbrain. Complex interactions between regulatory signalling molecules guide development of the simple otic placode into the elaborate, multifunctional organs of hearing and balance. This book delves into recent research in the field, focusing on successive stages of inner ear development and how they are influenced by the co-ordinate activity of signalling molecules. This book begins with an overview of the evolutionary adaptation of the organ of Corti (organ of hearing) and the molecular signals that characterise ancestral development of the inner ear. Following this, the topics addressed include the complex signalling interactions underlying induction of the otic placode, key molecular mediators influencing inner ear development and patterning, genetic signalling of the vestibular (balance) system and clinical correlations to human balance disorders, commitment to auditory hair cell fate, and reliance of the inner ear on retinoic acid, a biologically-active derivative of vitamin A, for appropriate development. This timely and comprehensive book provides an excellent resource for researchers, clinician-scientists and students alike.
Sobotta Tables of Muscles, Joints and Nerves The booklet comprises 100 tables with schematic illustrations of muscles to facilitate their systematic study. You can use it in combination with the Atlas: just take a table and look at the corresponding figure in the Atlas to learn all about the origin, insertion, innervation and function of an individual muscle. In the figure legends you will find a cross-reference to the corresponding muscle table, and vice versa from a table to the figure exposing a specific muscle. The 16th edition of "Sobotta" not only presents 600 completely revised images, but also 250 new insights into the human body. In this edition even more attention was paid on the clinical relevance and regarding the medical exam. With its expanded content on more than 1,300 pages including 500 exemplary test items of medical exams, the "Sobotta" is now bigger than ever before. Didactical conception: "Sobotta" learning loop Synopsis: the introductory overview of each chapter offers essential anatomical information "at a glance". Main topics, summarised according the National Competence-Based Catalogue of Learning Objectives for Undergraduate Medical Education (NKLM). Having studied the text thoroughly, the student will be able to explain all specific topics of a chapter. Clinical relevance: being illustrated by a typical case history in each chapter Dissection tips: valuable hints and know-how of experts as optimal preparation for exercises in the dissection room Focusing the essential: by bold-typing of keywords in legends and labels Exemplary test items of oral anatomical exams: to check one's knowledge Structure and layout Optimal orientation: by unequivocal descriptions, clear structural arrangement and improved layout Learning with legends: comprehensive legends highlight the anatomical key structures and explain their anatomical relationships Focusing the essential: by bold-typing key structures in legends and labels This edition is greatly enlarged by "Clinical Remark" boxes with descriptions of clinical pictures, where the displayed structure plays an important role. This helps keeping the learned information better in mind. Numerous tables, lists and diagrams facilitate the general overview and comprehension of complex anatomical connections.
The book provides a comprehensive description of the basic ultrasound principles, normal anatomy of the lower limb muscles and classification of muscle strain injuries. Ultrasound images are coupled with anatomical schemes explaining probe positioning and scanning technique for the various muscles of the thigh and leg. For each muscle, a brief explanation of normal anatomy is also provided, together with a list of tricks and tips and advice on how to perform the ultrasound scan in clinical practice. This book is an excellent practical teaching guide for beginners and a useful reference for more experienced sonographers.
Master anatomy by coloring it in!" Grant's Anatomy Coloring Book uses an interactive approach to help students deepen and reinforce their anatomical knowledge.

Follows the same chapter organization as Grant's Atlas of Anatomy and Grant's Dissector - making it easy to use in conjunction with these authoritative resources.
Functional impairment, defined as any abnormality of organ, or psychological function or anatomical structure that leads to inability to perform normal activities, is growing to be a huge challenge. The recent advancements in science as well as technologies, have aided in prolonging human lives, and with that, newer challenges have surfaced as to the quality of this extended life. Thus identifying causes and types of functional impairments with different organ systems and methods of management of these impairments are very crucial. The authors aim to shed some light on this important topic of functional impairment, and to discuss the various causes, manifestations and management of these impairments.
Oxidative stress, which is caused by endogenous and exogenous reactive-oxygen-species (ROS) formation, may significantly affect health-span and longevity. Endogenous oxidative stress could be attenuated in two ways: by the reduction of ROS formation and by quenching ROS with antioxidants. Numerous results of clinical trials in which individuals received one or more synthetic antioxidants failed to demonstrate conclusive benefits of antioxidant supplementation. Even oral supplementation with endogenous antioxidant enzymes cannot alter the antioxidant balance due to their degradation in the digestive system. Likewise, life-span or health-span is not increased significantly in genetically modified models overexpressing antioxidant enzymes. An alternative approach to attenuate the ROS-induced stress/damage may be through triggering an adaptive stress response in order to increase the endogenous antioxidant and damage repair processes. Moderate stress induced by CR, physical activity or mimetic compounds may induce such activation of endogenous antioxidative defence and cellular repair processes. These processes may increase cellular resistance to subsequent more severe stress and do not seem to interfere with ROS-dependent cellular signalling.
