Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) made prolific and lasting contributions to understanding "the life of the infinitely small." Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) made prolific and lasting contributions to understanding "the life of the infinitely small." Widely thought of as the founder of neuroscience, Cajal made remarkable explorations into the organization and function of the nervous system. His work is still referred to more than that of any other scientist in the field.W. Maxwell Cowan's foreword to this edition conveys the excitement and energy of Cajal's life and endeavors, the liveliness and flamboyance of his engagements with the microscope. Cowan surveys Cajal's salient discoveries, noting that almost every important conceptual issue in neurobiology was foreshadowed in Cajal's work: the initial description of the climbing fibers of the cerebellum, the discovery of the growth cone, the concept of the "dynamic polarity" of the neurom an anticipation of the later discovery of axonal transport, and the prediction that new synapses may be formed throughout life to serve as a physical basis for learning and memory. W. Maxwell Cowen is Vice President and Chief Scientific Officer at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
Molecules to Medicine with mTOR: Translating Critical Pathways into Novel Therapeutic Strategies is a one-stop reference that thoroughly covers the mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). mTOR, also known as the mammalian target of rapamycin, is a 289-kDa serine/threonine protein kinase that is ubiquitous throughout the body and has a critical role in gene transcription and protein formation, stem cell development, cell survival and senescence, aging, immunity, tissue regeneration and repair, metabolism, tumorigenesis, oxidative stress, and pathways of programmed cell death that include apoptosis and autophagy. Incorporating a translational medicine approach, this important reference highlights the basic cellular biology of mTOR pathways, presents the role of mTOR during normal physiologic function and disease, and illustrates how the mechanisms of mTOR can be targeted for current and future therapeutic treatment strategies. Coverage of mTOR signaling includes the entire life cycle of cells that impacts multiple systems of the body including those of nervous, cardiovascular, immune, musculoskeletal, endocrine, reproductive, renal, and respiratory origin.
This volume provides researchers with up-to-date protocols and takes a close look at current research and promising applications. Optogenetics: Methods and Protocols contains a collection of recently developed technical protocols on optogenetic applications in neuroscience, brain mapping, treatment of neurological disorders, and restoration of visual function. Several introductory and discussion chapters offer a wide overview about sources and diversity of optogenetic tools, design strategies, and potential applications in other fields like plant research. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting edge and thorough, Optogenetic: Methods and Protocols, delivers an interdisciplinary view of optogenetic applications and its potential to develop as a valuable tool for basic research, as well as biomedical and biotechnological applications.
An understanding of the relevance of anatomy to clinical practice is fundamental for medical students and young doctors. For this reason most of the questions in this self-assessment book are presented as case histories or clinical puzzles that require anatomical information for their elucidation. This will confirm the importance of basic anatomy to the clinical situation in line with modern teaching practices which encourage problem solving and will facilitate effective student-centred learning enabling the reader to assess his/her own progress. This book covers the whole field of topographical (gross) anatomy, regional, systematic and clinical, and as anatomy is essentially a visual subject, high quality full colour illustrations are included along with radiographs, MRI and CT images which will benefit visual appreciation of important anatomical features.
Publisher's Note: Products purchased from 3rd Party sellers are not guaranteed by the Publisher for quality, authenticity, or access to any online entitlements included with the product. The new edition of Bruce Wingerd's The Human Body: Concepts of Anatomy and Physiology helps encourage learning through concept building, and is truly written with the student in mind. Learning Concepts divide each chapter into easily absorbed subunits of information, making learning more achievable. Since students in a one-semester course may have little experience with biological and chemical concepts, giving them tools such as "concept statements," "concept check" questions, and a "concept block study sheet" at the end of each chapter help them relate complex ideas to simple everyday events. The book also has a companion Student Notebook and Study Guide (available separately) that reinvents the traditional study guide by giving students a tool to help grasp information in class and then reinforce learning outside of class. With additional, powerful options like PrepU and the ADAM Interactive Anatomy Online Student Lab Activity Guide, students have access to learning activities to help them study, understand, and retain critical course information.
The diagnosis and treatment of the diseases of the nose, paranasal sinuses and skull base have changed dramatically in the past few years, transforming rhinol- ogy in one of most exciting and attractive medical fields. The increasing advance in this area has addressed the ENT physicians to keep up with the expanding information in the high tech area of sinus surgery and its expansion into skull base surgery. The intention of this book is to present in a unique way basic information on Anatomy, Endoscopy, Rhinomanometry, Imaging, Allergy, Nasosinus Infection, and Polyposis followed by by clinical and surgical chapters written by some of the most experienced rhinosurgeons around the world. We belive that this book will be of value for all levels of Otolaryngology, from house officers to experienced surgeons and, although principally for Otolaryngologists, Radiologists, Patholo- gists, Maxillofacial surgeons, Ophthalmologists, Neurosurgeons, and Infectious Diseases Specialists may find the book of value because of its overlap with their interests. We would like to show that, both from the technical and conceptual points of view, success can be achieved using different techniques and philosophies. Cer- tainly, both endoscopic instrumentation and the surgical microscope have proved to be of great assistance in nasal and sinus surgery, and now image systems are providing further progress.
This classic guide to human anatomy will be welcomed by students and health professionals alike -- as well as anyone fascinated by science. Organized by anatomical region -- the most common method of studying the body in anatomy and biology courses -- and rigorously indexed, this essential medical reference is the fruit of an intensive collaboration between internationally recognized scientists, dissectors, and graphic artists. It ' s astoundingly rich in information: 650 detailed illustrations, including topographical, schematic, and sectional images, provide a comprehensive map of the human body ' s organ systems in lifelike full color. From systemic anatomy and the body wall to the central nervous system, visual organs, and orbital cavity, it ' s all here. Superbly drawn and meticulously labeled illustrations follow the most current International Anatomical Terminology, adopted by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists in 1998. The Color Atlas of Human Anatomy is the authoritative, practical guide to the body ' s complexities.
