In 1768, Ahmad al-Damanhuri became the rector (shaykh) of al-Azhar, which was one of the most authoritative and respected positions in the Ottoman Empire. He occupied this position until his death. Despite being a prolific author, whose writings are largely extant, al-Damanhuri remains almost unknown, and much of his work awaits study and analysis. This book aims to shed light on al-Damanhuri's diverse intellectual background, and that of and his contemporaries, building on and continuing the scholarship on the academic thought of the late Ottoman Empire. The book specifically investigates the intersection of medical and religious knowledge in Eighteenth-Century Egypt. It takes as its focus a manuscript on anatomy by al-Damanhuri (d. 1778), entitled "The Clear Statement on the Science of Anatomy (al-qawl al-sarih fi 'ilm al-tashrih),". The book includes an edited translation of The Clear Statement, which is a well-known but unstudied and unpublished manuscript. It also provides a summary translation and analysis of al-Damanhuri's own intellectual autobiography. As such, the book provides an important window into a period that remains deeply understudied and a topic that continues to cause debates and controversies. This study, therefore, will be of keen interest to scholars working on the "post-Classical" Islamic world, as well as historians of religion, science, and medicine looking beyond Europe in the Early Modern period.
This is an overview of human physiology and anatomy, including health and hygiene. A resource for Steiner-Waldorf teachers of Classes 7 and 8 (age 12-14).

This book is a contemporary statement of what is known about morphological development of the normal and abnormal human nervous system and puts into perspective the continued importance of changes that occur in the course of foetal development and how these processes may become defective. The first part of the book deals with the development of the central nervous system (CNS) from a morphological point of view including data from the fields of biochemistry, immunology and genetics. The second part reviews the genetic and nongenetic etiology of abnormal CNS development and discusses throughly all patologic syndromes that are related to disturbances of brain development. With the rapid progress in such modern branches of science as neurochemistry, genetics and molecular biology, this book will be invaluable for researchers working in these fields.
The main purpose of this book is to provide the reader with a better understanding of spinal nerve root injuries caused by various pathologies (e.g. disc herniation, space-occupying lesions, trauma etc.). The standard anatomical description of spinal nerve roots origin, course and arrangement (described in the first chapters of the book) is now strongly influenced by the frequent findings of their intraspinal extradural and intradural connecting branches and by other variations, which are considered to be the major cause of the surgical therapy failures. Intraspinal extradural and intradural neuroanatomical roots variations may affect in fact the clinical picture, diagnosis, and surgical treatment; their recognition can minimize the damage to neural structures in the spinal anaesthesia, in spinal operations, in spondylosurgery, in endoscopic surgery, laser discectomy, etc. Their aetiology is unknown and it has to be elucidated, and they are rarely found during the usual preoperational examinations, a reason that encouraged various anatomical dissection studies finalized to their description. The data shown in this book will be surely helpful for traumatologists, orthopaedists, spinal surgeons, neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons and for all those dealing with intraspinal variations of nerve roots.
Nowadays, English-speaking undergraduates in medicine, dentistry, veterinary science, nursing, physiotherapy, and allied professions lack the basics in Latin and Greek - the languages from which the great majority of anatomical terms are derived. The glossary presented in this expanded second edition takes the word-root of key anatomical terms and explains their meanings. It gives examples of their use in anatomical and other contexts, including everyday English usage. The meanings are reinforced with questions about related anatomical knowledge.

The grasp of neuroanatomy, maybe more than in other organ systems, is closely related to function, neurophysiology and neuro-biochemistry. Its understanding requires a working knowledge of the pivotal neuro-embryological events as well as a working knowledge of general anatomy. For these reasons, it remains one of the greatest challenges, both for the aspiring student and for the dedicated mentor in the medical field. The span of books used as references in teaching neuroanatomy is either too detailed or too simplistic in their attempt to balance the time constraints against the key points for each subject. In addition, since the field of neuroscience is currently at the forefront of research, many of the textbooks that are available are written by researchers rather than clinicians, and as a result they tend to suffer a lack of clinical focus. This book, written by a tutor of neuroanatomy and a practising neurosurgeon, attempts to offer a better balance and a more useful formula. This book is composed for the medical student, relying on comments from past medical students. The book begins with an introduction chapter which discusses the organisation of the nervous system, anatomical planes, introduction to neuro-embryology, as well as relevant scalp and skull anatomy. The next succeeding six chapters discuss the central nervous system regionally. Each chapter begins with the key embryological processes that shape the anatomy and function of that region. The gross anatomical description is followed by a short discussion of microscopic anatomy, grey and white matter anatomical features, major connections and key clinical correlations. The next three chapters tackle specific problematic topics separately. The meninges, the cerebrospinal fluid and the lateral ventricles are discussed first, followed by an overview of the cerebral blood supply. A unique chapter focusing on specific skull base complex structures, such as the cavernous sinus region, the sphenoid sinus, and the jugular foramen is subsequently presented. The book ends with two chapters presenting the special sensory senses, vision and audition. These chapters are organised in a system rather than in regional anatomy forms, with an in-depth discussion of related anatomical features.
Standing is the static posture most commonly evaluated in balance assessments. This is because of its ubiquitous nature and because the act of precariously balancing two thirds of our body mass some distance from the ground imposes critical demands on the postural control system. In this book, the authors present topical research in the study of posture, including the changes with ageing and exercise of postural control; the influence of sport training on sagittal spinal curvatures; mathematical models, their biofidelity and applications in human standing posture; the relationship between muscle-tendon unit stiffness, joint stability and posture and H-reflex assessment in understanding motor functions in postural control.

Kathrin Stauffer a biochemist and seasoned body psychotherapist takes a look at organ systems of the human body to illuminate the connections between body and mind, exploring the body as both the ground of our physical experience and as a metaphor for our emotional life. Beginning with a discussion of the basic building blocks of the body, cells and molecules, Stauffer works through the body system by system, showing through clinical case examples that an understanding of each system can greatly enhance the art of psychotherapy: The Central Nervous System, The Skeletal Musculature, The Respiratory System, The Skin, The Digestive System, Fluids and Connective Tissue, The Endocrine System, The Reproductive System, and The Respiratory System. Throughout, Stauffer presents human anatomy and physiology in clear, simple terms, with facts selected for interest and relevance to psychotherapists. Many links are made between physical and psychological function to give readers a taste of how body psychotherapists work in clinical practice to integrate body and mind, and thus help their clients become more whole. Anatomy & Physiology for Psychotherapists invites psychotherapists, complementary therapists, and anyone else interested in the mind/body connection to engage with the physical body to bring more depth into their therapeutic work."
Geared toward the shorter A&P course, this text provides students with a basic knowledge of human anatomy & physiology by briefly touching on each body system through an overview design and incorporating flash cards. They are given the basic concepts of the structure and function of the human body upon which they can continue to build as they pursue a career in healthcare.
