The present anatomical atlas concentrates on the early weeks of prenatal development of the human embryo. It comprises more than 800 scanning electron-microscopic pictures of specimens of exclusively human embryos. The three-dimensional appearing illustrations show the development of the external form of the face, neck, trunk and limbs. Besides, the brain and the viscera of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis - all dissected into layers - are represented in their position and spatial form. The juxtaposition of pictures of temporally close developmental stages reveals the changes in the form of the organs. Photographs of the same organic system are usually shown at the same magnification and clearly demonstrate the growth process. Simple outline drawings provided with the principal nomenclature facilitate the orientation within the specimens. A brief introduction to each chapter explains the most significant developmental steps depicted. This atlas is of great interest not only to anatomists, embryologists, histologists and developmental biologists, but also to biologists, biochemists and geneticists. Moreover, it serves as a valuable reference book for clinicians such as gynecologists, obstetricians, pediatric surgeons and pediatric cardiologists.

This atlas offers a guide to studying the fetal face by means of ultrasound analysis. It describes key phases in cranial-facial development, allowing the reader to learn the related semiology from its most simple iteration to the most complex one. The overall examination of a newborn's face offers a rich source of information and can guide the general examination. The same applies in the context of fetal ultrasound examination. The analytical study of the fetal face not only makes it possible to screen for anomalies related to the face itself, but also yields valuable insights into the brain, the limbs, and the heart. In addition, it allows ultra-sonographers to unravel the puzzle of fetal dimorphism. Written in a pedagogical style, the book guides walks the reader through the diagnostic reasoning process step by step. The authors are pioneers in this field and teach in various university and master's degree ultrasound programs. Their aim is to share with readers their diagnostic approaches and their knowledge and passion for 2D and 3D ultrasound techniques. Each chapter includes algorithms, biometry curves, and simple guidelines that allow users to go "from sign to syndrome". The first chapter, which focuses on innovative embryology adapted to the needs of ultra-sonographers, was written by Gerard Couly, a maxilla-facial surgeon and the founding father of the specialty>
Muscle cells, including cardiomyocytes, contain a specialized smooth endoplasmic reticulum (ER), sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) calcium ions (Ca2+) release and reuptake by the sarcoplasmic reticulum trigger the contraction and relaxation of the myofibrils, respectively. This book examines the control and modulation of the SR and how this may vary among skeletal and cardiac muscle without bypassing the smooth muscle. It presents new and exciting work in this area and identifies promising new research directions. Furthermore, it considers the advances in this relatively unexplored field, offering new insights into the role of SR communication with other organelles and the new concepts about ER stress. Generally, this scientific book brings together contributions from key workersboth in basic and clinical sciences whose studies range from physiological to pathological and molecular to whole animal. In this book, the authors provide insights into the evolution of SR design and function.

The technique of electromyography, used to study the electrical
currents generated by muscle action, has become invaluable to
researchers in the biological, medical, and behavioral sciences.
With it, the scientist can study the role of muscles in producing
and controlling limb movement, eating, breathing, posture,
vocalizations, and the manipulation of objects. However, many
electromyographic techniques were developed in the clinical study
of humans and are inappropriate for use in research on other
organisms--tadpoles, for example. This book, a complete and very
practical hands-on guide to the theoretical and experimental
requirements of electromyography, takes into account the needs of
researchers across the sciences.
This book is dedicated to an update on metabolic disorders and their consequences on the developing nervous system. In the last ten years, major scientific advances in biochemical diagnosis have enabled the identification of many new disease entities, as well as a better classification of clinical symptoms and their correlation to biochemical defects.

Both the number of pediatric surgeons using minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and the number of operations involving MIS are increasing. This atlas of anatomy and operative techniques provides a thorough outline of the procedures commonly used in laparoscopic and thoracoscopic pediatric surgery. Step-by-step operative photographs are accompanied by explanatory text, and line diagrams are used to highlight the important anatomy as seen endoscopically. Alternative techniques, instruments, and steps are described when appropriate, and attention is drawn to highlights and pitfalls. While each chapter includes some basic background on the condition in question, the focus is very much on the operative procedures. This atlas will be of special benefit to those establishing a laparoscopic practice as well as to those in training who wish to embark on MIS. It will also serve as a supplementary atlas of anatomy and surgical technique for younger surgeons and medical students.
