Practical Anatomy is designed to enable novice anatomists to grasp the biological background of the human anatomy while understanding its complexity within the clinical context. As a guide to the dissection of the human cadaver, it provides an account of the biological and systemic foundations of the human body. In keeping with the tradition of its predecessor this revised edition is primarily aimed at undergraduate allied health sciences and medical students who are encountering dissection for the first time and are intimidated by the volume of information to be understood. In addition, some dissections of more complex regions of the anatomy have been integrated into the text for more advanced students. This version has built on the solid foundation of the first edition of Practical Anatomy and Man's Anatomy, incorporating all the features unique to these texts while updating the methodology and including the latest anatomical terminology as outlined in the Terminologia Anatomica.

A practical guide to how we can positively adapt to a changing world, from the internationally bestselling authors of The 100-Year Life 'The London Business School professors Andrew J. Scott and Lynda Gratton have been predicting how society must adapt for years. Now they have a post-pandemic road map for us all' Sunday Times Smart new technologies. Longer, healthier lives. Human progress has risen to great heights, but at the same time it has prompted anxiety about where we're heading. Are our jobs under threat? If we live to 100, will we ever really stop working? And how will this change the way we love, manage and learn from others? One thing is clear: advances in technology have not been matched by the necessary innovation to our social structures. In our era of unprecedented change, we haven't yet discovered new ways of living. Drawing from the fields of economics and psychology, Andrew J. Scott and Lynda Gratton offer a simple framework based on three fundamental principles (Narrate, Explore and Relate) to give you the tools to navigate the challenges ahead. The New Long Life is the essential guide to a longer, smarter, happier life.

This newly revised fourth edition of The Concise Book of Muscles is a comprehensive guide to the major muscle groups. Fully illustrated with more than 500 drawings, and easy to use, this compact reference provides a complete profile for each muscle, clearly showing its origin, insertion, nerve supply, and action, the movements that use it, and, where appropriate, exercises that stretch and strengthen it. The book's distinctive quick-reference format shows students exactly how to locate and identify specific muscles, highlighting those that are heavily used and therefore subject to injury in a variety of sports and activities. Each muscle chapter now includes an overview of the gross anatomy of the body area, to show bony landmarks, cross-sections of muscle layers, and points of attachment, as well as a quick reference and an overview of the nerve pathways that are most relevant. The book alsoIt includes a new chapter on the pelvic floor muscles, which are of particular interest to those studying or practicing yoga and Pilates. While designed for the student and beginning practitioner of anatomy, massage, bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, physiotherapy, yoga, and Pilates or any other health-related field, The Concise Book of Muscles is equally useful for athletes and anyone interested in the workings of the human body.

This new edition has been updated with a number of recommendations from Cecilia Brassett, University Clinical Anatomist, University of Cambridge, and Councillor of both The Anatomical Society and the British Association of Clinical Anatomists,, and the writing of Dr. Dan Quemby, who has taught pharmacology, physiology, and anatomy to medical and science students at St. Andrew's University and University College London.
This completely revised edition provides a synthesis of the forces that shaped the evolution of the human growth pattern, the biocultural factors that direct its expression, the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that regulate individual development, and the biomathematical approaches needed to analyze and interpret human growth. After covering the history, philosophy and biological principles of human development, the book turns to the evolution of the human life cycle. Later chapters explore the physiological, environmental and cultural reasons for population variation in growth, and the genetic and endocrine factors that regulate individual development. Using numerous historical and cultural examples, social-economic-political-economic forces are also discussed. A new chapter introduces controversial concepts of community effects and strategic growth adjustments, and the author then integrates all this information into a truly interactive biocultural model of human development. This remains the primary text for students of human growth in anthropology, psychology, public health and education.
