Commemorations And Memorials: Exploring The Human Face Of Anatomy (Hardcover): Goran Strkalj, Nalini Pather Commemorations And Memorials: Exploring The Human Face Of Anatomy (Hardcover)

A major component of many modern human anatomy programs is commemorating people who have donated their body for education and research. In addition, some institutions have also organized memorial places to honor the body donors. This book is an edited volume which explores the phenomena of commemorations and memorials in anatomy. It includes both descriptive papers focusing on the content of the ceremonies and theoretical papers contextualizing and examining these within the broader ethical, scientific, medical and educational frameworks. Building up on the idea of a community of practice, the main objective of the volume is to enhance the exchange of ideas and sharing of experiences. The concepts of 'commemoration' and 'memorial' in anatomy programs are presented as emerging. They are seen as phenomena that will continue to evolve and ramify within different cultural and educational contexts, and this volume is expected to facilitate these processes. Indeed, meager literature on the topic indicates potentially enormous practical value in sharing and combining practices from different cultural and teaching/research traditions.

Anatomy and physiology, a key part of the core curriculum in surgical technology, is the central basic science course around which the knowledge of surgical technology revolves. However, most conventional A&P books do not cover the surgical aspects of anatomy and physiology that the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology requires. Surgical Anatomy and Physiology for the Surgical Technologist provides the basic concepts of A&P and applies them to practical surgery. Throughout the book, examples show how the anatomy and physiology of a particular body system or organ relates to a surgical procedure. This resource includes case studies, review questions, key terms, objectives for each chapter, and information boxes that tie specific anatomical elements to surgical practice. This book meets the requirements of the current edition of the Core Curriculum for Surgical Technology.

The discipline of anatomy has had a pivotal influence on the history of medicine as it serves almost as the language of medicine. This concept has not been changed till today, but the modalities that we use to understand the subject have been significantly changed. This book is unique in that the essential contents are put together allowing one to browse through anatomical knowledge on a daily basis. It should also satisfy anyone who believes that medical faculty must follow a system which is educationally sound. Developing an excellent anatomy curriculum, assessment system, and anatomy resource centre are key to success that will allow us to address the question of "how do we teach anatomy?" If we have to continue teaching an important subject such as anatomy to medical students, we must be innovative in terms of our approach of teaching in the presence of decreased contact hours to fulfil the curricular need of more integration. This book will target medical educationists and students who may find it easier to develop concepts in gross anatomy, embryology, histology and neuroanatomy. Since planning learning experiences, their implementation and student assessment, are closely related activities, care is taken to develop a process for clinically-oriented multiple choice questions in anatomy that satisfy the theme and objectives of anatomy. The issues related to laboratory activities have also been addressed so as to emphasise objective-structured practical examination that is integrated and clinically relevant during the early period of the medical curriculum. The students' perception has been brought to our attention and given a great focus. This book for the first time addresses education in anatomy and provides a great resource for medical schools engaged in problem-based learning or integrated systems curriculums.

This volume focuses on the cell biology and physiology of skeletal muscle regeneration. This Book is a collection of classic and cutting edge protocols optimized for mice, but in most cases adaptable to rat or other mammalian models, that will allow an investigator to develop and implement a research study on skeletal muscle regeneration. Chapters address the three major areas of study: provoking regeneration by inducing damage to muscle, analyzing the progenitor cells of skeletal muscle, and quantifying overall muscle function. Subjects discussed include: inducing skeletal muscle injury by eccentric contraction; volumetric muscle loss; single myofiber isolation and culture; satellite cell transplantation; muscle clearing for whole mount immunostaining; luciferase tracking of muscle stem cells; mitochondrial and mitophagy flux analysis; in vivo assessment of muscle contractility; force measurements on single isolated myofibers; and analysis of aerobic respiration in intact skeletal muscle tissue by microplate respirometry. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to each respective topic, 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 practical, Skeletal Muscle Regeneration in the Mouse: Methods and Protocols is an essential laboratory reference for research in skeletal muscle growth, damage, repair, degeneration, and regenerative therapy in the mouse model system.

In this collection, the authors review temporal control of tissue homeostasis and repair by the circadian system. The molecular regulation of circadian timing has been well-characterized in several species as a highly conserved transcriptional feedback loop that maintains roughly 24-hour cellular periodicity. A current challenge is determining how the outputs of the master clock affect peripheral oscillators and numerous biological processes. A subsequent study seeks a more detailed understanding of the physiology and molecular mechanism underlying circadian changes in the plasma of glucose, which might allow for the identification of novel targets for the developing therapeutic approached to the diabetes and obesity diseases. Procambarus acanthophorus, a burrower crayfish, follows a nocturnal circadian rhythm due to the way it spends long periods of time building tunnels to reach the water table during the dry season. Therefore, it follows that this species must have a close relationship with soil. The authors suggest that soil might be an ecological factor with high perceived value, influencing ecological aspects, and physiological functions such as growth, reproduction, and organization of the circadian system. The genes involved in the maintenance of circadian rhythm and its impact on the immunological system are described as disruption of the circadian rhythm leads to significant alterations of the organism and is associated with several biological responses. In the concluding review, some of the most useful characteristics of zebrafish for studying the molecular, cellular, and behavioral aspects of the circadian clock system are described. Zebrafish have been established as an attractive vertebrate model for the examination of light signaling pathways and their impact on the cellular clock because zebrafish cellular clocks have an unusual attribute of being directly light responsive. Additionally, the molecular components of the mammalian and zebrafish cellular clocks are highly similar.
