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.
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.
This text is written for the two semester anatomy & physiology course. The writing is comprehensive, providing the depth necessary for those courses not requiring prerequisites, and yet, is presented with such clarity that it nicely balances the thorough coverage. Clear descriptions and exceptional illustrations combine to help students develop a firm understanding of the concepts of anatomy and physiology and to teach them how to use that information. Great care has been taken to select important concepts and to perfectly describe the anatomy of cells, organs, and organ systems. The plan that has been followed for ten editions of this popular text is to combine clear and accurate descriptions of anatomy with precise explanations of how structures function and examples of how they work together to maintain life. To emphasize the concepts of anatomy and physiology, the authors provide explanations of how the systems respond to aging, changes in physical activity, and disease, with a special focus on homeostasis and the regulatory mechanisms that maintain it. This text has more clinical content than any other A & P book on the market.
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. This volume provides an introduction to basic sciences specifically relevant to this disease group, then focuses on each subgroup in turn: hyperphenylalaninaemias, mitochondrial encephalomyopathies, organic acidoses, urea cycle defects, lysosomal storage and peroxylsomal disorders. Finally, a discussion of long term follow-up and family related issues also reports the results of a four-year research project led by the Mariani Foundation.
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>
"Here is a book which compiles the most accurate data on bone age
in an extremely useful form, so that the practicing clinician,
pediatrician, general practitioner, internist, or radiologist may
find data quickly and accurately. . . . This book represents a
tremendous amount of work, a study of over 1,000 individuals, with
from two to twenty films each, in an effort to find an acceptable
series of standards. . . . This book should be in te possession of
all those who expect to interpret skeletal age from films or assess
the patient from that clinical point of view."--Stanford Medical

Muscle testing - A Concise Manual, provides a reference for understanding how structure relates to function, and how by knowing function we can learn structural configurations. Often muscular anatomy is taught as a dry subject whereby each muscle is painstakingly reviewed and the learner is expected to cite origin, insertion, action, nerve supply and blood supply. This commonly used approach may not necessarily aid understanding of muscle function, nor does it demonstrate muscular positioning. Through muscle testing, one is better equipped to consider how muscles function individually and in working groups. It is the knowledge of symmetrical movement, range of motion, contractile patterns, resistance and gravity that provides the fuller picture for muscle function and dysfunction. The text is organised in such a way as to enable the reader to understand anatomical position and assessment of muscular contractile strength. The manual provides movement-relevant illustrations to aid understanding of muscle location and testing positions. This is further enhanced through links to video footage for each test. The book summarises the key anatomical facts and figures, give methods for muscle testing by several techniques, and provides clinically useful information to supplement the tests.

The comprehensive approach to anatomy is a new attempt to understand the organization of anatomical structures instead of only memorizing details, which is both time-consuming and prone to error. The basic principle is that man did not design man, a truth which presents the solution and not the problem. This kind of approach requires first observing a function and identifying, in engineering terms, the technical problems that need to be solved in order to achieve that function. In a second step the anatomical solution is examined in terms of validation and should always be an intelligent solution that puts the characteristics of specific living tissues to optimal use. Anatomy is obviously the mandatory basis of all types of medical practice. For centuries, its rigorous methodology has relied on dissection, which is the only means to precisely identify the morphology of organs and for surgeons to learn how to directly and safely reach the structures they need to operate on. Accordingly, this book includes illustrations of many dissections and anatomical sections in order to provide a realistic view of the complex organization of the human body. This book addresses the needs of a broad range of medical and paramedical practitioners interested in movements and their disorders: MDs and surgeons of all specialties, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, X-ray manipulators, osteopathic specialists, etc. Its goal is to demonstrate the amazing intelligence and complexity of human motor functions and to better grasp the how and why of their construction.
