Atlas of Human Brain Connections (Paperback): Marco Catani, Michel Thiebaut De Schotten Atlas of Human Brain Connections (Paperback)

One of the major challenges of modern neuroscience is to define the complex pattern of neural connections that underlie cognition and behaviour. Brain connections have been investigated extensively in many animal species, including monkeys. Until recently, however, we have been unable to verify their existence in humans or identify possible tracts that are unique to the human brain. The Atlas of Human Brain Connections capitalises on novel diffusion MRI tractography methods to provide a comprehensive overview of connections derived from virtual in vivo tractography dissections of the human brain. The book introduces the reader to the fundaments of human brain organization as derived from the study of the surface, sectional and connectional anatomy. It starts with an historical overview of the giant steps taken in neuroanatomy, from its birth more than 2000 years ago, to contemporary neuroimaging insights. Next, detailed descriptions of the major white matter connections, their function, and associated clinical syndromes are dealt with in detail. The composite maps of the Atlas are an excellent anatomical resource for teaching, clinical, and research purposes. By reviewing the basic principles of neuroanatomy, its historical roots, and its modern achievements in the field of DTI tractography, the book fills the gap between the detailed connectional anatomy of the monkey brain and the 19th century descriptions of white matter tracts from post-mortem human dissections. Covering a wide range of topics in the field of clinical neuroanatomy, this book constitutes both an excellent introduction to the brain, and a valuable reference work for experienced clinicians and researchers working in the field of neurology, psychiatry, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology.

The book presents an integrative review of paleoneurology, the study of endocranial morphology in fossil species. The main focus is on showing how computed methods can be used to support advances in evolutionary neuroanatomy, paleoanthropology and archaeology and how they have contributed to creating a completely new perspective in cognitive neuroscience. Moreover, thanks to its multidisciplinary approach, the book addresses students and researchers approaching human paleoneurology from different angles and for different purposes, such as biologists, physicians, anthropologists, archaeologists and computer scientists. The individual chapters, written by international experts, represent authoritative reviews of the most important topics in the field. All the concepts are presented in an easy-to-understand style, making them accessible to university students, newcomers and also to anyone interested in understanding how methods like biomedical imaging, digital anatomy and computed and multivariate morphometrics can be used for analyzing ontogenetic and phylogenetic changes according to the principles of functional morphology, morphological integration and modularity.

Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrated Approach combines the study of anatomy and physiology into one well-organized and illustrated text. It teaches students about the purposes of organ systems, as well as their interconnections. It educates readers about interactions between systems and how disruption to a single system can impact overall function. The material in Anatomy and Physiology focuses on primary concepts and how to apply them. Linked learning strategies, section-specific references, and short summaries throughout each chapter emphasize and reiterate material to enhance learning and retention. Anatomically accurate, vibrant, realistic artwork helps readers visualize anatomic and physiological principles. Written as an integrative text, Anatomy and Physiology provides a consistent, balanced discussion of both anatomy and physiology within and across chapters. The book provides detailed information on the topics covered in the traditional, two-course sequence of college-level anatomy and physiology but avoids overwhelming readers with inessential information. It is suitable for courses on anatomy, physiology, and human biology, particularly those designed for programs in health care professions.

Cell-material interface plays a key role in the interaction of cells with artificial materials designed for construction of body implants or tissue engineering. Physical and chemical properties of the material surface, such as its polarity, wettability, electrical charge and conductivity, roughness and morphology, rigidity or elasticity as well as the presence of various chemical functional groups, strongly influence the cell adhesion. The latter is mediated by adsorption of cell adhesion-mediating molecules (eg: vitronectin, fibronectin, collagen, laminin, fibrinogen) from the serum of the culture medium or body fluids in appropriate spatial conformation or flexibility enabling the accessibility of specific sites on these molecules (eg: certain amino acid sequences or saccharide-based ligands) by adhesion receptors on the cell membrane (eg: integrins). After binding these ligands, the adhesion receptors are recruited into focal adhesion plaques, where they associate with cascades of various structural and signalling molecules, such as cytoskeletal proteins and kinases. By these cascades, the signal provided by the cell-material interaction is delivered to the cell nucleus. It influences the gene expression, and thus the further behavior of cells, manifested by their viability, synthesis of various molecules, proliferation, differentiation, functioning, immune activation, stress adaptation or cell death. This interdisciplinary review involves: (i) physical modifications of the material surface by plasma discharge, irradiation with ions or ultraviolet light and effects of these modifications on the surface wettability, electrical conductivity and formation of chemical functional groups influencing cell adhesion, (ii) deposition of organic or inorganic layers on the material surfaces, especially those nanostructured (eg: nanofibers of fibrin and extracellular matrix molecules, carbon nanoparticles, such as nanodiamonds, fullerenes and nanotubes, nanocomposite metal/C:H layers), (iii) functionalisation of the material surface with amino acids and oligopeptidic ligands for cell adhesion receptors (e.g., GRGDSG), (iv) effect of all these modifications on the extent and strength of adhesion of vascular and bone-derived cells, cell proliferation activity, switch between cell proliferation and differentiation, expression of cell-type specific markers of differentiation and other cell functions.
