Basic Anatomy and Physiology of Human Body
by A. O. Osunderu - National Open University of Nigeria , 2008
Anatomy and physiology are closely integrated both theoretically and practically. Anatomical information provides clues about probable functions and physiological mechanisms can be explained only in terms of the underlying anatomy.
The Whole Brain Atlas
by Keith A. Johnson, J. Alex Becker - Harvard Medical School , 1999
From the table of contents: Neuroimaging Primer; Normal Anatomy in 3-D with MRI/PET; Normal Brain; Cerebrovascular Disease (stroke or 'brain attack'); Neoplastic Disease (brain tumor); Degenerative Disease; Inflammatory or Infectious Disease.
Muscle Atlas of the Extremities
by Michael Richardson - Bare Bones Books , 2011
A brief pictorial atlas of the muscles of the extremities, including 46 muscles of the upper extremity and 39 muscles of the lower extremity. Origin, insertion, action, innervation and arterial supply is listed for each muscle.
Hand Atlas of Human Anatomy
by Werner Spalteholz - G. E. Stechert , 1900
The main object of studying anatomy is to obtain a mental image of the human body rather than to memorize numerous terms. Pictures of dissections aid the imagination of the student enormously and thus guide his work from the known to the unknown.
Anatomy: Descriptive and Applied
by Henry Gray, Edward Spitzka - Lea & Febiger , 1913
As a thoroughly practical treatise on the subject for the medical student, Gray's Anatomy has long been held in the highest esteem. The essentials are here embodied into a complete account of the structures of the human body and their development.
by Gwilym G. Davis - J.B. Lippincott Company , 1916
It is not the object of this work to teach plain anatomical facts; its aim is to show the relation of structure to function, whether it is normal function or function disturbed or impaired by injury or disease. It is explanatory and utilitarian.
Surgical Applied Anatomy
by Frederick Treves - Lea Brothers and Co. , 1907
Applied anatomy serves to give a precise basis to those incidents and procedures in practice that more especially involve anatomical knowledge. It endues the dull items of that knowledge with meaning by the aid of illustrations drawn from experience.
Surgical Anatomy and Operative Surgery
by John J. McGrath - Davis , 1902
This volume combines, in a practical manner, the subjects of surgical anatomy and operative surgery, because a knowledge of the one is essential to the proper study of the other. Drawings have been used largely for the purpose of illustration.
by David Hayes Agnew - J. B. Lippincott & Co. , 1856
The work has been prepared with a single eye to the faithful economy of the Student's time. The minute anatomy of parts and the smaller ramifications of the nervous and vascular systems were omitted, belonging more properly to systematic treatises.
Anatomy at a Glance
by Omar Faiz, David Moffat , 2002
A concise and accessible introduction and revision aid to fundamental anatomy for medical and allied health students and sports science students. Following an easy-to-use format, each topic is presented as a double-page spread with key facts.
The Human Machine
by George B. Bridgman - Bridgman Publishers, Inc. , 1939
One of the leading books for artists in understanding the human anatomy. It emphasizes planes, light and dark and what lies underneath the skin. It isn't a scientific study, and it doesn't go into great detail as to the exact purpose of muscles.
Human Anatomy Online: Laboratory Dissections
- SUNY Downstate Medical Center , 2008
The authors focus on concise descriptions of steps in the dissection process and provide key illustrations. Additionally, students can access a large videodisc image gallery which serves as a guide to the various steps of dissection.
Illustrated Encyclopedia of Human Anatomic Variation
by Ronald A. Bergman, Adel K. Afifi, Ryosuke Miyauchi - Anatomy Atlases , 2006
Anatomic variations arise from our genetic composition, no two living organisms are functionally or structurally identical. The authors describe normal things, although they may differ from the usual. Useful for quick reference.
Anatomy of First Aid: A Case Study Approach
by Ronald A. Bergman - Anatomy Atlases , 2004
A first aid manual that is anatomically and medically correct. It conveys descriptions in anatomical language and graphic illustrations necessary to perform first aid and to communicate with those providing subsequent medical treatment.
Atlas of Microscopic Anatomy - A Functional Approach
by Ronald A. Bergman, Adel K. Afifi, Paul M. Heidger - W B Saunders Co , 1999
This atlas was prepared with the student as the foremost consideration. The Atlas' function is classroom-oriented, it supplements textbooks heavily weighted towards electron microscopy, it provides concise structural/functional correlations.
Atlas of Human Anatomy in Cross Section
by R. Bergman, A. Afifi, J. Jew, P. Reimann - Anatomy Atlases , 2004
High-quality color atlas of sectional anatomy in the axial plane. Photographic images offer the best means of correlation with radiologic images. This book is sufficiently visually precise and detailed to aid in difficult interpretations.

This atlas is translated from the original atlas entitled Handbuch der Anatomie des Menschen which was published in 1841 in Leipzig, Germany. The author of this atlas was Professor Dr. Carl Ernest Bock, who lived from 1809 - 1874.
