Did you know that breast milk contains substances similar to cannabis? Or that it s sold on the Internet for 262 times the price of oil? Feted and fetishized, the breast is an evolutionary masterpiece. But in the modern world, the breast is changing. Breasts are getting bigger, arriving earlier, and attracting newfangled chemicals. Increasingly, the odds are stacked against us in the struggle with breast cancer, even among men. What makes breasts so mercurial and so vulnerable? In this informative and highly entertaining account, intrepid science reporter Florence Williams sets out to uncover the latest scientific findings from the fields of anthropology, biology, and medicine. Her investigation follows the life cycle of the breast from puberty to pregnancy to menopause, taking her from a plastic surgeon s office where she learns about the importance of cup size in Texas to the laboratory where she discovers the presence of environmental toxins in her own breast milk. The result is a fascinating exploration of where breasts came from, where they have ended up, and what we can do to save them."
A new era for liver anatomy has dawned. With the development of multidetector row computed tomography (MDCT) in the 1990s, precise volume-rendered 3-D images could be constructed, leading to new observations. Liver anatomy has since been reevaluated from the standpoint of portal segmentation and drainage veins and includes a reclassification of the liver. Better surgical results and fewer complications have supported the rationale for the new liver anatomy. Based on the work and spirit of Team Chiba from Chiba University, this publication is a testament to the collaboration, perseverance, and innovation in the field of liver anatomy. With high regard for the early pioneers in this field, Team Chiba can be credited with pioneering its own antiviral treatment, percutaneous ethanol injection therapy, radiation therapy, and US-guided hepatic resections. It is the team's hope that the new liver anatomy will find acceptance worldwide and will contribute to the advancement of the health and welfare of mankind.
This book presents topical research in the study of the composition, functions and pathology of endothelium and epithelium. Topics discussed include the pathophysiology of endothelium; the role of epithelial innate immunity in inflammatory diseases; morphofunctional characteristic features of statis endothelium and dynamic epithelial cell populations; changes of respiratory epithelium in bronchial asthma; interleukin-6 (IL6) signalling and its role in the development of cardiovascular disease; endothelium-dependent effects of heat shock on vasomotor tone; the Gasdermin Superfamily functioning in epithelial cells and tight junctions in upper airway epithelium.
Why do testicles hang the way they do? Is there an adaptive function to the female orgasm? What does it feel like to want to kill yourself? Does 'free will' really exist? And why is the penis shaped like that anyway? Research psychologist and award-winning columnist Jesse Bering takes readers on a bold and captivating journey through some of the most taboo issues related to evolution and human behaviour. Exploring the history of cannibalism, the neurology of people who are sexually attracted to animals, the evolution of human body fluids, the science of homosexuality and serious questions about life and death, Bering boldly goes where no science writer has gone before. With his characteristic irreverence and trademark cheekiness, Bering leaves no topic unturned or curiosity unexamined, and he does it all with an audaciously original voice. Whether you're interested in the psychological history behind the many facets of sexual desire or the evolutionary patterns that have dictated our current phallic physique, Why Is The Penis Shaped Like That? is bound to create lively discussion and debate for years to come.
This book provides information on testosterone and its role in human anatomy, physiology, psychology and pathology. In particular, it proposes articles on testosterone biosynthesis and metabolism peculiarities; on the regulation of dominant behaviour; on cognitive and emotional factors and the cardiovascular system involving testosterone and on androgen suppression mechanisms during stress. The book includes topics on the therapeutic effects of testosterone and effective methods of detecting androgens in the human body and presents a variety of clinical, experimental, theoretical and review articles. This collection gathers the latest research from around the world in this field and will be of value for researchers studying the effects of hormones, as well as for androgen deficiency therapists.

The Theory of Endobiogeny Volume 1: Global Systems Thinking and Biological Modeling for Clinical Medicine offers researchers and clinicians a detailed introduction to the theory of Endobiogeny. The book presents a new approach to medicine that is at once scientific and humanistic, quantitative, and qualitative. The philosophical and experimental basis of a global complex systems approach to physiology is presented along with a mathematical approach to modeling the dynamism of the terrain. The importance of the history and physical examination are renewed as a source of "big data" readily available to clinicians for greater insight into the patient's state. Expansion of the therapeutic compendium is proposed based on a rational, clinical approach correlated to mathematical indicators of the physiologic state. What is proposed in this work is a fundamental shift in scientific thinking with a resulting expansion of the boundaries of clinical medicine for the 21st century and beyond.
Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are increasingly common. Every year, approximately 80,000 people rupture their ACL in the United States alone. Of those, it is mostly the young and active population that suffers the injury. This book provides an overview of the psychological models of injury rehabilitation, the role of coping with ACL injury and the role of social support. Detailed discussions are included related to specific stages of rehabilitation from ACL injury. Furthermore, to investigate the subtle biomechanical changes in the knee following ACL deficiency and reconstruction, both in vitro robotic testing systems and in vivo imaging and computerised modelling techniques have been employed and are examined.
The English Edition contains a few differences from the first ItaHan Edition, which require an explanation. Firstly, some imag es, especially some 3D reconstructions, have been modified in order to make them clearer. Secondly, in agreement with the Publisher, we have disowned one of our statements in the preface to the Italian Edition. Namely, we have now added a brief introductory text for each section, by way of explanation to the anatomical and physiological notes. This should make it easier for the reader to understand and refer to this Atlas. These differences derive from our experience with the previous edition and are meant to be an improvement thereof Hopefully, there will be more editions to follow, so that we may further improve our work and keep ourselves busy on lone some evenings. Finally, the improvements in this edition are a reminder to the reader that one should never purchase the first edition of a work. UAquila, January 2006 The Authors Preface to the Italian Edition I have been meaning to publish an atlas of neuroradiologic cranio-encephaHc anatomy for at least the last decade. Normal anatomy has always been of great and charming interest to me. Over the years, while preparing lectures for my students, I have always enjoyed lingering on anatomical details that today are rendered with astonishing realism by routine diagnostic ima ging.
