Although the sensory organs-particularly the attention and ear-are of serious scientific value, the lecture time allotted to them within the anatomical curricula is proscribed as a result of their nice nomenclatural and physiological complexity. Sufficiently exact descriptions can often be came across purely in multivolume handbooks or in expert monographs protecting a unmarried sensory organ. In Atlas of the Sensory Organs: useful and scientific Anatomy, a panel of specialist clinical educators and across the world well known comparative and developmental neuroanatomists concisely, yet completely, describe the 5 major human sensory platforms including their neural pathways, from basic sensation to processing via the mind. The authors offer an in depth anatomical survey of every sensory organ, overlaying their ontogeny (development), vital pathways, and useful mechanisms. The organs themselves are richly illustrated with mild and electron microscopic representations of fit and intact organs or tissues, other than the place pathology is without delay suitable to knowing general constitution and serve as. Highlights contain microanatomy and endoscopic photos of the temporal bone, human embryonic specimens demonstrating the histology of the constructing ear, and scanning electron micrographs of the organ of Corti and the vestibular receptors. There also are easy-to-use tables offering an outline of the nerves and arteries of the attention and orbit, and medical specimens of the attention and optic pathways. A significant other compact disk comprises high-resolution copies of the colour illustrations utilized in the book.
entire and richly illustrated, Atlas of the Sensory Organs: sensible and medical Anatomy offers an in depth portrait of the entire sensory organs and similar neural platforms in one quantity replete with high quality illustrations of unique specimens, recordings, and diverse schematic drawings.
