Bone tissue plays a vital role in the human system for its biological and mechanical activities, resulting from its regenerative capacity and permanent remodelling process. Bone damage, either due to pathologies or traumas, is a very common occurrence and represents a major problem in orthopaedics. This book briefly summarises recent literature concerning modification and applications of osteoinductive materials for reconstructive surgery. Several recent developments of biocomposites containing silica nanoparticles or calcium sulphate intended for bone regeneration are also reported. In addition, new therapies are identified for bone regeneration in an injured or diseased state, as well as for bone loss in ageing. Also discussed in this book is normal bone development, mesenchymal stem cells in osteogenesis, and essential elements that regulate osteogenesis at the extracellular, intracellular and nuclear levels.

Skin anatomy refers to the structure of the skin, which consists of two principal parts: the outer, thinner portion which is called the epidermis and the inner, thicker portion which is known as the dermis. Alternatively, skin physiology is the subdivision of physiology which concerns the functions of the skin including the regulation of body temperature, protection, sensation, excretion, immunity, blood reservoir and the synthesis of Vitamin D. There are more than a thousand conditions that may affect the skin but some of the most common skin diseases include rashes, bacterial infections, fungal infections, parasitic infections, pigmentation disorders, tumours and cancers and skin diseases that result from trauma. This book gathers the latest research from around the globe in this field.
Almost every medical faculty possesses anatomical and/or pathological collections: human and animal preparations, wax- and other models, as well as drawings, photographs, documents and archives relating to them. In many institutions these collections are well-preserved, but in others they are poorly maintained and rendered inaccessible to medical and other audiences. This volume explores the changing status of anatomical collections from the early modern period to date. It is argued that anatomical and pathological collections are medically relevant not only for future generations of medical faculty and future research, but they are also important in the history of medicine, the history of the institutions to which they belong, and to the wider understanding of the cultural history of the body. Moreover, anatomical collections are crucial to new scholarly inter-disciplinary studies that investigate the interaction between arts and sciences, especially medicine, and offer a venue for the study of interactions between anatomists, scientists, anatomical artists and other groups, as well as the display and presentation of natural history and medical cabinets. In considering the fate of anatomical collections - and the importance of the keeper's decisions with respect to collections - this volume will make an important methodological contribution to the study of collections and to discussions on how to preserve universities' academic heritage.

This unique text fills the gap between shorter texts, containing little explanatory material, and the compendia, for those advanced in the field of neurological disorders. It is written both for novices and for physicians who require an update on the subject. To understand the symptoms and signs requires a sound knowledge of the gross anatomy of the central nervous system and supporting tissues. This book achieves this using the author's own detailed diagrams, backed up with concise and practical guidance on diagnosis and treatment, as well as relevant case studies.The long-awaited second edition of this highly popular guide reflects such recent advances as computed tomography and MRI. The tutorial approach presents readers with an authoritative view of the fundamentals of practical neurology.
Complex physiopathological relationships have been proven to exist between two of the body's most vital organs; the brain and the heart. In Cell Cycle Regulation and Differentiation in Cardiovascular and Neural Systems Antonio Giordano, Umberto Galderisi and a panel of the most respected authorities in their field offer an in-depth analysis of the differentiation process in two systems that have profound relationships with one another. The text looks at several aspects of the cardiovascular and nervous systems from a new point of view, describing the differences and similarities in their differentiation pathways with an emphasis on the role of cell cycle regulation and cell differentiation. Topics discussed include neurogenesis in the central nervous system, neural stem cells, and the basic-helix-loop-helix transcription factors in neural differentiation. Ground-breaking and authoritative, Cell Cycle Regulation and Differentiation in Cardiovascular and Neural Systems is a must have for all researchers in cardiovascular medicine and neuroscience and will prompt the scientific community to perceive cell cycle regulation and differentiation under a novel and more comprehensive light.
Of the approximately 640 muscles in the human body, over 10% of them are found in the craniofacial region. The craniofacial muscles are involved in a number of crucial non-locomotor activities, and are critical to the most basic functions of life, including vision, taste, chewing and food manipulation, swallowing, respiration, speech, as well as regulating facial expression and controlling facial aperture patency. Despite their importance, the biology of these small skeletal muscles is relatively unexplored. Only recently have we begun to understand their unique embryonic development and the genes that control it and characteristic features that separate them from the skeletal muscle stereotype. This book is the most comprehensive reference to date on craniofacial muscle development, structure, function, and disease. It details the state-of-the-art basic science of the craniofacial muscles, and describes their unique response to major neuromuscular conditions. Most importantly, the text highlights how the craniofacial muscles are different from most skeletal muscles, and why they have been viewed as a distinct allotype. In addition, the text points to major gaps in our knowledge about these very important skeletal muscles and identified key gaps in our knowledge and areas primed for further study and discovery.

The primary function of appetite is to control adequate energy intake in order to meet an organism's metabolic requirements. The interplay between hunger, appetite stimulation and food intake is tightly regulated by the central nervous system and conditioned by numerous inherently biological as well as acquired social and cultural phenomena. Appetite is closely linked to individual behaviour, thereby affecting energy intake as well as qualitative food structure and represents a basis for possible therapeutic intervention in individuals with impaired appetite regulations. This book presents several perspectives on appetite regulation in humans and animal models. The importance of understanding altered appetite regulation in cancer is highlighted as well as the effects of exercise on appetite. Finally, this book also presents new research into the role of genetic variability in ghrelin in dietary composition.
