This makes this book a perfect companion for those interested in anatomy, regardless of their previous knowledge of the subject matter. This beautiful luxury edition of Anatomy in Black features a gold foil embossed black hardback cover, with black sprayed edges, gold ribbon marker, head and tail bands, and packaged in a deluxe black slipcase with gold foil motif and ribbon pull, making it a beautiful object to adorn any anatomy enthusiasts' home.
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.
In 1768, Ahmad al-Damanhuri became the rector (shaykh) of al-Azhar, which was one of the most authoritative and respected positions in the Ottoman Empire. He occupied this position until his death. Despite being a prolific author, whose writings are largely extant, al-Damanhuri remains almost unknown, and much of his work awaits study and analysis. This book aims to shed light on al-Damanhuri's diverse intellectual background, and that of and his contemporaries, building on and continuing the scholarship on the academic thought of the late Ottoman Empire. The book specifically investigates the intersection of medical and religious knowledge in Eighteenth-Century Egypt. It takes as its focus a manuscript on anatomy by al-Damanhuri (d. 1778), entitled "The Clear Statement on the Science of Anatomy (al-qawl al-sarih fi 'ilm al-tashrih),". The book includes an edited translation of The Clear Statement, which is a well-known but unstudied and unpublished manuscript. It also provides a summary translation and analysis of al-Damanhuri's own intellectual autobiography. As such, the book provides an important window into a period that remains deeply understudied and a topic that continues to cause debates and controversies. This study, therefore, will be of keen interest to scholars working on the "post-Classical" Islamic world, as well as historians of religion, science, and medicine looking beyond Europe in the Early Modern period.
Outstanding pictures providing precious insights into prenatal human development The present anatomical atlas concentrates on the early weeks of prenatal development of the human embryo. It comprises more than 800 scanning electron-microscopic pictures of specimens of exclusively human embryos. The three-dimensional appearing illustrations show the development of the external form of the face, neck, trunk and limbs. Besides, the brain and the viscera of the head, neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis all dissected into layers are represented in their position and spatial form. The juxtaposition of pictures of temporally close developmental stages reveals the changes in the form of the organs. Photographs of the same organic system are usually shown at the same magnification and clearly demonstrate the growth process. Simple outline drawings provided with the principal nomenclature facilitate the orientation within the specimens. A brief introduction to each chapter explains the most significant developmental steps depicted. This atlas is of great interest not only to anatomists, embryologists, histologists and developmental biologists, but also to biologists, biochemists and geneticists. Moreover, it serves as a valuable reference book for clinicians such as gynecologists, obstetricians, pediatric surgeons and pediatric cardiologists.

This book brings up-to-date information on developments in studies of human stefins and cystatins, proteins with the function of cystein proteases (cathepsins) inhibition. The chapters start at the level of genes, go on with protein structure and function (proposal of alternative function), protein stability and folding, to mis-folding and mis-function. The book ends with chapters describing different disease states where stefins or cystatins are involved, from Alzheimer's disease, epilepsy to cancer.
"Cross-sectional Atlas of the Brain" provides for the first time a set of high-resolution color cross-sections of the human brain (six times higher than that of the only complete data set available to date), each image accompanied by state-of-the-art MRI and CT scans of the same specimen. The sections were made at an interval of 147 micrometers of frozen tissue, virtually artifact free, with the blood vessels filled at sub-millimeter level. The more than two hundred detailed and fully annotated images in this atlas provide a complete body of reference to the gross anatomy of the brain. The accompanying line drawings of these images provide a roadmap for easy orientation.
The unparalleled resolution of the images also made it possible to derive cross-sections of the same specimen in all standard orientations--sagittal, coronal, and axial--through multi-planar computer-aided reformatting. This feature, which eliminates inter-subject variability, has never before been available in an anatomical atlas and makes the atlas especially useful for identifying and following anatomical structures in each plane. About the Companion DVD
(View a sample in PDF format)
While the book itself contains 93 images (44 axial, 28 coronal, and 21 sagittal), the DVD contains the complete series of 1,481 axial images from one anatomic specimen from which the 44 axial images in the book were selected. These images were made at a resolution of 1525x1146 or 147 m/pixel with a digital camera. The axial images are accompanied by 1,528 sagittal and 1,146 coronal images that were made by reformatting and reslicing the axial images. By placing these images side-by-side-by-side the DVD allows the user tosee a particular region of the brain in all three orientations-axial, sagittal and coronal-simultaneously. These images are further accompanied by radiologic data. The DVD also allows the user to view a synchronized slide show of the images in all three planes. Images on the DVD that also appear in the book are highlighted with a blue background.

"a gem of a textbook which manages to produce a genuinely fresh, concise yet comprehensive guide" -Mark Leake, University of York "destined to become a standard reference.... Not just a `how to' handbook but also an accessible primer in the essentials of kinetic theory and practice." -Michael Geeves, University of Kent "covers the entire spectrum of approaches, from the traditional steady state methods to a thorough account of transient kinetics and rapid reaction techniques, and then on to the new single molecule techniques" -Stephen Halford, University of Bristol This illustrated treatment explains the methods used for measuring how much a reaction gets speeded up, as well as the framework for solving problems such as ligand binding and macromolecular folding, using the step-by-step approach of numerical integration. It is a thoroughly modern text, reflecting the recent ability to observe reactions at the single-molecule level, as well as advances in microfluidics which have given rise to femtoscale studies. Kinetics is more important now than ever, and this book is a vibrant and approachable entry for anyone who wants to understand mechanism using transient or single molecule kinetics without getting bogged down in advanced mathematics.

Recent evidence proving the molecular link between unchecked,
chronic inflammation and cancer has implicated the transcription
factor NF-kB as a key factor in both inhibiting apoptosis and
promoting cell proliferation. Since its initial identification 20
years ago as a simple regulating factor in one small part of the
immune response, NF-kB is proving to be the most protean of all
transcription factors. It has been shown to function in most cell
types as a key regulator of a number of inducible genes. Research
on the responsibilities and resulting pathologies of NF-kB has been
prolific, but until now there has been no consolidated,

The usual surgical approaches to the head and neck region are overviewed. Subdivisions were made according to the anatomical regions and their functional correlations. The approaches are explained in a short introductory text. Their execution and indications as well as possible extensions are included. Emphasis is put on the illustrative plastic images showing the approaches in 4-colored figures. These were drawn after anatomical specimens and intrasurgical findings, therefore representing the actual anatomical situation. This is not a comprehensive textbook of surgical procedures but a clear representation of surgical approaches to the different topographical regions.
This work on the nervous system includes such areas as the five senses, and the senses unnoticed by the Greeks; the physics of the nerve impulse; and the anatomical bases of motivation, pain, the endocrine glands and hormones, sensation and perception, and the higher nervous activities.
Essentials of the Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders is the first book of its kind written specifically for graduate students and clinicians. It is based on the 4-volume treatise, Handbook of the Cerebellum and Cerebellar Disorders (Springer, 2013), the definitive reference for scientists and neurologists in the field of cerebellar neurobiology. There have been fundamental advances in the basic science and clinical neurology of the cerebellum and its role in sensorimotor function and cognition. This monograph makes this large and expanding body of knowledge readily accessible to trainees and clinicians alike. The editors are world leaders in the field, and the chapters are authored by an international panel of experts drawn from ataxia clinics and cerebellar laboratories throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Essentials provides a solid grounding in the field of cerebellar research and ataxiology from cerebellar circuity to clinical practice, and it serves as a springboard to a deeper appreciation of both the principles and the complexities of cerebellar neurobiology. Clinicians are expected to have a deep appreciation of cerebellar disorders, not only in specialized ataxia clinics but also in adult and pediatric neurology, neurosurgery, psychiatry and neuropsychology practices, and in outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation settings. This book is an indispensable resource for students and practitioners navigating the evolving field of cerebellar motor and cognitive neurology. It also links to the more expansive Handbook for those who need to explore the topics in this monograph in greater depth.
