In this second edition of A Guide to Dissection of the Human Body, certain dissecting instructions have been revised to increase clarity. Methodical and comprehensive, the guide complements various anatomy courses. The terminology has been checked and brought up to date, in accordance with the latest version of Terminologia Anatomica (1998). The major aim of this guide remains — to provide a well-rounded dissecting manual that reinforces, but does not replace, a textbook of human anatomy. The details of human anatomy covered here are of interest and importance primarily in a medical context. To this end the guide has been designed for medical, dental, osteopathy and physiotherapy students, and for students of alternative medicine where dissection of the human body is required. It has also been planned for postgraduate students proceeding to specialise in the various clinical (surgical, radiological, emergency medical, and gynaecological) sciences and thus need to revise their anatomical knowledge through dissection. It has to be stressed, learning anatomy is most efficient and retention is highest when didactic study is combined with the experience of dissection. In using this method one observes, palpates and moves parts of the body. It is a three-dimensional and visuo-tactile approach to the examination of the human body. Undoubtedly dissection reinforces and expands the knowledge gained from the textbook and from atlases and computerized-anatomy programs, The Guide is flexible enough for use in long as well as short courses, and is thus structured in such a way that the dissection of the body can be completed in 100 to 160 hours. It provides a link to real, living and variable anatomy.

Humanity is experiencing a shift in consciousness today that is expanding for the betterment of the entire earth community. As this shift continues into and beyond 2012, we must begin to collectively consider another alternative to our personal and Integrative Health Care. For many years we have accepted going to a doctor as our only hope for health. With steadily increasing costs, continual misdiagnoses, addiction and dependency to prescriptions, then more prescriptions to offset the first dose of side-effects, we need to turn the corner now into the clear understanding of our very own health. Here, you will learn the true cause of behaviors associated with your illnesses, by exploring essential steps in achieving healthy patterns and tools for memory shifting. The Sacred Language of the body is about the vast energy that fuels you mentally, emotionally, and most importantly, spiritually. It will guide you into empowering your life individually and collectively, allowing us to shape-shift our world into vibrant health once again. This is a time of recognition and reconciliation of our own spirit. A time when our human awareness is poised to experience a more fulfilling connection to the greater universe as we journey back to who we really are. Oneness within ourselves guides and produces oneness in our world. This is how true health is created. It is the Shaman's path, an integrated way of living, where simplicity and knowledge shall lead the way towards a planet of balance and harmony.

A clear, simple guide for students of anatomy as well as an excellent resource for athletes, massage therapists, and anyone interested in the workings of the human body, this user-friendly book is organized around six muscle groups. They include muscles of the face head, and neck; the trunk; the shoulder and upper arm; the forearm and hand; the hip and thigh; and the leg and foot. Each of the groups is given a distinctive color to make it easy to identify, and each muscle is shown in its relationship to the skeleton. Each gets a complete profile, including origin/insertion, action of the muscle, which nerve controls it, movements that use it, and exercises and stretches that strengthen it. The Concise Book of Muscles 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. This expanded edition of a leading anatomy reference book includes 20 muscles not previously covered, adding greater depth to the original edition while remaining accessible and affordable.

This book comprehensively addresses the physics and engineering aspects of human physiology by using and building on first-year college physics and mathematics. Topics include the mechanics of the static body and the body in motion, the mechanical properties of the body, muscles in the body, the energetics of body metabolism, fluid flow in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, the acoustics of sound waves in speaking and hearing, vision and the optics of the eye, the electrical properties of the body, and the basic engineering principles of feedback and control in regulating all aspects of function. The goal of this text is to clearly explain the physics issues concerning the human body, in part by developing and then using simple and subsequently more refined models of the macrophysics of the human body. Many chapters include a brief review of the underlying physics. There are problems at the end of each chapter; solutions to selected problems are also provided. This second edition enhances the treatments of the physics of motion, sports, and diseases and disorders, and integrates discussions of these topics as they appear throughout the book. Also, it briefly addresses physical measurements of and in the body, and offers a broader selection of problems, which, as in the first edition, are geared to a range of student levels. This text is geared to undergraduates interested in physics, medical applications of physics, quantitative physiology, medicine, and biomedical engineering.

Learning anatomy requires more than pictures and labels; it requires a way "into" the subject, a means of making sense of what is being shown. Anatomy of the Moving Body addresses that need with a simple yet complete study of the body's complex system of bones, muscles, and joints and how they function. Beautifully illustrated with more than 100 3D images, the book contains 31 lectures that guide readers through this challenging interior landscape. Each part of the body is explained in brief, manageable sections, with components described singly or in small groups. The author doesn’t just name the muscles and bones but explains the terminology in lay language. Topics include the etymology of anatomical terms; origins and attachments of muscles and their related actions; discussion of major functional systems such as the pelvis, ankle, shoulder girdle, and hand; major landmarks and human topography; and structures relating to breathing and vocalization. This second edition features all-new illustrations that use a 3D digital model of the human anatomical form. The book's thoroughness, visual interest, and clear style make it ideal for students and teachers of the Alexander and Feldenkrais techniques as well as for practitioners of yoga, Pilates, martial arts, and dance.

Ein Roman »mit einem ganz großen Herzen« Daily Express In einer regnerischen Freitagnacht wird Andrew Martin, Professor für Mathematik in Cambridge, aufgegriffen, als er nackt eine Autobahn entlangwandert. Professor Martin ist nicht mehr er selbst. Ein Wesen mit überlegener Intelligenz und von einem weit entfernten Stern hat von ihm Besitz ergriffen. Dieser neue Andrew ist nicht begeistert von seiner neuen Existenz. Er hat eine denkbar negative Meinung von den Menschen. Jeder weiß schließlich, dass sie zu Egoismus, übermäßigem Ehrgeiz und Gewalttätigkeit neigen. Doch andererseits: Kann eine Lebensform, die Dinge wie Weißwein und Erdnussbutter erfunden hat, wirklich grundschlecht und böse sein? Und was sind das für seltsame Gefühle, die ihn überkommen, wenn er Debussy hört oder Isobel, der Frau des Professors, in die Augen blickt?
