Significant advances in brain research have been made, but investigators who face the resulting explosion of data need new methods to integrate the pieces of the "brain puzzle." Based on the expertise of more than 100 neuroscientists and computer specialists, this new volume examines how computer technology can meet that need. Featuring outstanding color photography, the book presents an overview of the complexity of brain research, which covers the spectrum from human behavior to genetic mechanisms. Advances in vision, substance abuse, pain, and schizophrenia are highlighted. The committee explores the potential benefits of computer graphics, database systems, and communications networks in neuroscience and reviews the available technology. Recommendations center on a proposed Brain Mapping Initiative, with an agenda for implementation and a look at issues such as privacy and accessibility.
This visual and textual overview of pain provides an easy-to-understand tool for patient interaction with health professionals.

1917. Third Edition, Revised by Frank A. Stromsten. With 115 Illustrations, most of which were made by W.H. Reese, A.M., from the Author's dissections. From the Introduction: Since this book is designed for the use not only of students who have pursued the study of biology for some time, but also for those making their first actual acquaintance with the subject, it may be well to call attention to the fact that any animal or plant may be considered from several different standpoints.

The international symposium on transposition of the great arteries was held in Munich on May 3-5, 1991. It was organized by the German Heart Center Muni eh with two aims: firstly, to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Dr. Rashkind's publication: "Creation of an atrial septal defect without thoracotomy" (which appeared in 1966 in the Journal of the American Medical Association), and to honor this great pediatric cardiologist, who was one the pioneers of interventional catheterization. secondly, to give an overview of current medical knowledge about the pre- and postnatal diagnosis, medical and surgical treatment, and postoperative evalua- tion of transposition of the great arteries. Fig. 1. Dr. Rashkind in his Iabaratory checking his balloon catheter V This symposium brought tagether embryologists, morphologists, experts in fetal cardiology, pediatric cardiologists, and pediatric cardiac surgeons from 10 different countries. Thus, we were able to describe the current state-of-the-art of pre- and postnatal management and the surgical treatment of this second most common con- genital cyanotic anomaly of the heart. Dr. Rashkind's approach to create an atrial septal defect in the setting of com- plete transposition of the great arteries dramatically changed the natural history of this cyanotic heart defect, which carried a 90% neonatal mortality before this effec- tive palliation became available.
The book provides an updated overview of molecular analysis of human tissues, and the impact this analysis has on diagnosis and prognosis of human diseases.

Biomedical research is at a critical point at present. The research has led to an enormous amount of data and models describing these data, but - proachesforapplication,formalizationand integrationof this knowledgefrom the molecular to the system level are still topics of ongoing research and c- tainly far from fully developed. Also in cardiology the di?erent anatomical and physiological constituents as well as the coupling between them are being researchedin increasing detail and areoften described using computer-based models. But for this domain an integrative framework is still missing. The application of computer-based modeling as a research, development and clinical tool often necessitates the coupling of various models from di?- ent levels. Describing the interactions between these models, which are both physically sound and computationally e?cient, determines the applicability of such promising computer-based attempts. Myhopeisthatthisbookwillcontributetothecomprehension,spreadand impact of computer-based modeling in cardiology,both from a teaching point of view and by summarizing knowledge from several, commonly delimited topics relating to the cardiac manifoldness. The book evolved from revision and extension of my professorial disser- tion(Habilitationsschrift)"MathematicalModelingoftheMammalianHeart" written in 2002. This dissertation was based on notes for the lectures "C- putational Biology: Bioelectromagnetism and Biomechanics," "Simulation of Physical Fields in the Human Body," and "Anatomical, Physical and Fu- tional Models of the Human Body," which I gaveat the Universita t Karlsruhe (TH) from 1998 to 2003.

Over the last years, numerous studies have provided new insights into the structural and functional organization of the human cortical motor system. The data reviewed in this book indicate that striking similarities have been found between humans and non-human primates.
This chart illustrates general hip anatomy including bones, muscles, arteries, veins, and nerves. It shows anterior, posterior, and lateral (opened) views of the hip joint and covers blood supply and injuries such as intertrochanteric fracture, femoral neck fracture, and dislocation. It also illustrates hip joint fractures and repair and total hip arthroplasty (replacement).
The refereed proceedings of the Second International Workshop on Functional Imaging and Modeling of the Heart, FIMH 2003, held in Lyon, France in June 2003. The 29 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected for presentation. The papers are organized in topical sections on anatomy extraction and description, modeling of the cardiac mechanics and functions, electro-physiology and electro- and magnetography, motion estimation, image registration and image analysis, and data acquisition and experimental and modeling issues.
The numerous and meticulously exposed findings are the very latest and of practical use for the cardiologist who is interested in new, morphologically-based diagnostics and the establishment of an exact anatomical basis for modern non-invasive therapy; for the radiologist who strives to obtain precise anatomical data, accurate and angiographical evaluations and diagnoses; for the cardiac surgeon, who strives, through precise and safe approaches in operations on the heart, to diminish surgical risks and increase the benefit of surgery to the patient. The review includes an great variety of new findings which relate to the greater (major) and smaller (minor) cardiac venous system and narrow a gap in the rather incomplete knowledge of the venous drainage of the human myocardium. A number of the results may help to achieve the success of the rather new technique of coronary sinus catheterization and reperfusion of the cardiac veins.
This work is not an anatomical atlas nor textbook (like that of McAlpine and Anderson) nor an angiographical atlas (like that of Vlodaver et al.); it is a short and comprehensive survey of the many variations of the intrinsic cardiac vessels. The reader's attention is focused on the numerous structural details and peculiarities of the human coronary arteries. The many unique features have been revealed by meticulous dissection and present an excellent documentation. All in all, this study represents an up-to-date review of morphology of the coronary arteries.
This new book provides an accessible review of the field of lung biology and disease aimed at the graduate or medical student and biomedical researcher. The book starts by considering the anatomy and ultrastructure of the lung and the tracheal and bronchial system, the control of respiration as well as the fundamentals of pulmonary physiology, gas exchange and circulation. This is followed by discussion of the regulation of acid-base balance, high altitude physiology and pathophysiology as well as exercise and the pulmonary system. Chapters follow on the immunology of the lung, lung injury, asthma and emphysema, granulomatous lung disease, inhalation of toxic substances as well as diseases of the small airways. The final chapter considers current research into lung transplantation.
Anatomy, to be sure, is the essential foundation of clinical practice, but it is much more than that. First and foremost, anatomy is a biological science. There is order and logic to the organization of the human body and the arrangement of its parts. And, as all sciences, anatomy offers challenge and discovery.
Concepts in Anatomy is not a textbook, but more of a brief handbook that is selective rather than encyclopedic in scope, conception rather than particular in its approach. It stresses general principles, so as to minimize rote learning, and it provides order and direction to the study of gross anatomy. Anatomy is inherently complicated and confusing; this volume helps you make sense of it in a way that also aims to inspire its study. Richly illustrated with original drawings, Concepts in Anatomy is a valuable resource for anyone currently studying or teaching the subject, or as a reference for advanced researchers.
This book is a concise summary of the present knowledge about skeletal muscle fibres. The fibre types aare characterized from different points of view. The difficulties and possibilities of classifying muscle fibres in distinct non-overlapping types are shown. A main emphasis is put on metabolic fibre typing by cytophotometry as well as the adaptability of a given fibre type to altered physiological and pathological conditions. Extensive analyses of several rat hindlimb muscles revealed regional differences of fibre properties within the muscles and showed the influence of ageing, myopathy, hypoxia, diabetes and Ginkgo biloba-treatment on the different fibre tyypes.
Hypoxia remains a constant threat throughout life. It is for this reason that the International Hypoxia Society strives to maintain a near quarter century tradition of presenting a stimulating blend of clinical and basic science discussions. International experts from many fields have focused on the state-of-the-art discoveries in normal and pathophysiological responses to hypoxia.
Topics in this volume include gene-environment interactions, a theme developed in both a clinical context regarding exercise and hypoxia, as well as in native populations living in high altitudes. Furthermore, experts in the field have combined topics such as skeletal muscle angiogenesis and hypoxia, high altitude pulmonary edema, new insights into the biology of the erythropoietin receptor, and the latest advances in cardiorespiratory control in hypoxia. This volume explores the fields of anatomy, cardiology, biological transport, and biomedical engineering among many others.
