"Introduction to Kinesiology: The Science of Human Physical"
Activity outlines the major concepts, principles, and experimental
findings for the curious yet serious student interested in the
field of kinesiology. Like most fields of science, it is important
to provide kinesiology students with a textbook that covers the
historical development of the field, discusses career
opportunities, and provides the groundwork for future coursework.
It is also important to clearly articulate the limit and scope of
kinesiology by defining core knowledge and to emphasize the
cross-disciplinary nature of kinesiology. "Introduction to
Kinesiology" was designed to meet all of these requirements.
This manual is a practical guide to anatomy for undergraduate medical students.

This book was written in an attempt to fill a serious gap in medieal literature. A coneise anatomieal text, incorporating an atlas of the vaseular anatomy of the vertebral column and spinal cord, it has been designed to suit the needs of ort ho- pedie surgeons, neurosurgeons, and neurologists. We also fee! that this work will he!p give direetion to further studies on the morphology and physiology of spinal eirculation. The book begins with a diseussion of the origins of the arteries whieh supply the vertebral eolumn. It eontinues with adescription of the various regions of the spine, the eervieal, thoraeie, and lumbar, and of the arteries which supply the meninges and spinal cord, the veins of the verte- bral column, and venous and arterial distribution within the spinal cord. Anatomie studies of the eireulation both in bones and in the spinal cord require the use of teehniques whieh are erude and time consuming. Essential to sueeess is aecess to fresh postmortem human bodies, so that injeetions into the vaseular systems may be attempted before any disseetion has been made in the course of the routine pathologie examination. Permission to pursue these partieular anatomie studies eannot be obtained as a matter of routine. Beeause of the restrieted availability of speeimens therefore, only random sam pIes can be obtained.

This book presents an overview of a new group of progenitor stem cells. Their origins were originally detected in light- and electron microscopical sections of plastic embedded human embryonal and fetal organs. The distribution of these cells can result in a large quantity of ectopic stem cells. The observation of these ectopic stem cells leads us to postulate the existence of a basic wave of stem cell progenitors. This process proceeds earlier and independently from germ cell migration. This first wave of progenitor stem cell migration initially reaches the peri-aortal AMG-region (Aortal-Mesonephric-Gonadal region). From here, some of these progenitor cells enter the aorta, are distributed through the vascular system and become the embryonal stem cells (reserve cells) in many peripheral tissues. A second part delivers progenitor cells for the adrenal 'anlage'. Within the peripheral Zona definitiva of the adrenal cortex the progenitor cells multiplicate and subsequently leave the adrenal cortex through a gate of the capsule. The progenitor cells arrive at the pre-aortal sympathic plexus ('second brain'). Within the plexus ganglia they form new organ-like clusters, the paraganglia. In a second process the progenitor cells (Chromaffine cells) enter sympathetic nerve bundles. Here an 'axonal migration' starts, which guides the progenitor cells to several peripheral organs. During this migration process the stem cells develop into their final state. In the adrenal cortex the ingrowing nerves guide the stem cells to the adrenal medulla. In the pancreas the ingrowing nerve fibers guide the stem cells to the islets. These newly detected stem cells represent a specific developmental step which is found only in humans.

Inducing highs of excitement, anger, and terror, adrenaline fuels the extremes of human experience. A rush empowers superhuman feats in emergencies. Risk-taking junkies seek to replicate this feeling in dangerous recreations. And a surge may literally scare us to death. Adrenaline brings us up to speed on the fascinating molecule that drives some of our most potent experiences. Adrenaline was discovered in 1894 and quickly made its way out of the lab into clinics around the world. In this engrossing account, Brian Hoffman examines adrenaline in all its capacities, from a vital regulator of physiological functions to the subject of Nobel Prize--winning breakthroughs. Because its biochemical pathways are prototypical, adrenaline has had widespread application in hormone research leading to the development of powerful new drugs. Hoffman introduces the scientists to whom we owe our understanding, tracing the paths of their discoveries and aspirations and allowing us to appreciate the crucial role adrenaline has played in pushing modern medicine forward. Hoffman also investigates the vivid, at times lurid, place adrenaline occupies in the popular imagination, where accounts of its life-giving and lethal properties often leave the realm of fact. Famous as the catalyst of the "fight or flight" response, adrenaline has also received forensic attention as a perfect poison, untraceable in the bloodstream--and rumors persist of its power to revive the dead. True to the spirit of its topic, Adrenaline is a stimulating journey that reveals the truth behind adrenaline's scientific importance and enduring popular appeal.
