This book reviews current understanding of normal muscle tone and how it differs in spastic, thixotropic and hypotonic patients. The book contains practical advice on measuring the postural system and will be of interest to pediatricians and also to physiologists involved in investigating muscle tone.

A Physiological Approach to Clinical Neurology, Third Edition is a 13-chapter book that first describes pain and other sensations, weakness, neuromuscular disorders, spinal reflexes, as well as muscle tone and movement. This text also explores the disordered muscle tone, a term used to describe the sensation of resistance felt by the clinician as he manipulates a joint through a range of movement with the subject attempting to relax. Other chapters discuss the basal ganglia and their disorders and the cerebellum and its disorders. The anatomy and physiology of the special senses, cranial nerves, and autonomic nervous system are also explained. The last three chapters elucidate consciousness, unconsciousness, epilepsy, and the relationship between brain and mind. This book will be useful to those in the field of clinical neurology.

Composed of a set of chapters contributed by past and present collaborators of the Nobel laureate Sir Andrew Huxley, this book covers the areas of muscle research to which Huxley made major contributions. The purpose of the book is to discuss the way that muscles work, asking questions at a fundamental level about the molecular basis of muscle tone production and muscle contraction. The majority of the chapters are concerned with muscle physiology and the relation between structure and function. The process of activation of muscles is discussed, along with the mechanism of contraction itself. Although most of the book deals with vertebrate skeletal muscle, several chapters cover cardiac muscle. Also featured are two chapters discussing Sir Andrew's achievements in both nerve and muscle physiology.

The first part of the book deals with only that part of the basic anatomy and physiology, which is important in understanding the mechanism of yoga practices. This time a special note, in the form of tips 'from yoga point of view', has been added so as to understand various concepts and aphorisms of yoga clearly. The second part of the book describes the traditional technique of asanas, pranayamas, bandhas, mudras, kriyas (cleansing practices), their possible mechanismÄ This book would help the reader: (1) To learn the basic structure and various functions of the body. (2) To understand the yogic concepts, the correct technique and the mechanism of the yogic practices as well as their physiological effects on the human body. (3) To know whether we can modify the techniques of these yoga practices with the help of the scientific information about them for better application. (4) To understand the principles of yogic therapy, its application, contra-indication and limitations. (5) To know the scientific aspect of the Aum chanting.
