This book brings together a cross-fertilization of ideas between human molecular genetics, developmental biology, tissue biology and the biochemistry of cell signalling pathways, in order to create new insights into the mechanisms of normal and abnormal skeletogenesis. This broad perspective is essential in order to understand the aetiology of genetic diseases affecting skeletal development at all levels from genotype to phenotype, i.e. from mutation to syndrome.

This invaluable book provides the first description of the diverse and fascinating functions of heme in life processes for a broad audience. It begins with an introduction to the intricate chemical properties of heme and the history of early observations of human diseases associated with heme. It then proceeds to describe the versatile roles of heme in controlling diverse molecular and cellular processes germane to human life and disease processes. Finally, an up-to-date review of human diseases associated with heme synthesis and application of heme synthesis in photodynamic therapy in cancer treatment is presented.Heme biology is unified and logical in presentation. It is well suited for students and professionals in life sciences who wish to comprehend the fascinating biology of heme and its usefulness in health and diseases. It may also be used as a reference book for advanced readers and researchers who are interested in heme biology. The explanations in the book are detailed enough to capture the interest of the curious reader, and complete enough to provide the necessary information for researchers to have an in-depth molecular understanding of heme biology and further their studies in this fascinating realm.
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 Physiological Measurement Handbook presents an extensive range of topics that encompass the subject of measurement in all departments of medicine. The handbook describes the use of instruments and techniques for practical measurements required in medicine. It covers sensors, techniques, hardware, and software as well as information on processing systems, automatic data acquisition, reduction and analysis, and their incorporation for diagnosis. Suitable for both instrumentation designers and users, the handbook enables biomedical engineers, scientists, researchers, students, health care personnel, and those in the medical device industry to explore the different methods available for measuring a particular physiological variable. It helps readers select the most suitable method by comparing alternative methods and their advantages and disadvantages. In addition, the book provides equations for readers focused on discovering applications and solving diagnostic problems arising in medical fields not necessarily in their specialty. It also includes specialized information needed by readers who want to learn advanced applications of the subject, evaluative opinions, and possible areas for future study.
Accurate analysis of blood gases is vital to give information on a patient's respiratory and circulation state as well as the adequacy of resuscitation. This book guides the reader, with the help of clarifying cartoons, through the basic principles and a new and easy to grasp system of interpretation.
Research proves that the inner workings of the brain, its structures, and its functions are directly related to psychiatric disorders, and psychiatrists are increasingly called upon to have knowledge of behavioral neuroanatomy in order to offer the most effective treatment for their patients. However, brain regions specifically affiliated with behavior are not adequately addressed in psychiatric training. This book, a four-color visual tour of brain anatomy for psychiatric residents and practitioners, fills that gap by focusing on a range of psychiatric conditions and exploring the corresponding parts of the brain that are affected. Green and Ostrander take readers on a systematic tour of all brain regions with important behavioral affiliations or with known or theoretical involvement in psychiatric disorders, including over 190 four-color images to help readers conceptualize the relationship between brain regions and specific disorders. Psychiatrists-in-training, practicing psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals interested in the neurological bases of illness will all find this book useful.
