Although the sensory organs-particularly the attention and ear-are of serious scientific significance, the lecture time allotted to them within the anatomical curricula is proscribed due to their nice nomenclatural and physiological complexity. Sufficiently distinctive descriptions can often be chanced on in basic terms in multivolume handbooks or in expert monographs overlaying a unmarried sensory organ. In Atlas of the Sensory Organs: practical and medical Anatomy, a panel of specialist scientific educators and across the world popular comparative and developmental neuroanatomists concisely, yet completely, describe the 5 major human sensory structures including their neural pathways, from basic sensation to processing through the mind. The authors supply a close anatomical survey of every sensory organ, protecting their ontogeny (development), principal 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 correct to realizing common constitution and serve as. Highlights comprise microanatomy and endoscopic photographs 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 summary of the nerves and arteries of the attention and orbit, and medical specimens of the attention and optic pathways. A spouse compact disk comprises high-resolution copies of the colour illustrations utilized in the book.
accomplished and richly illustrated, Atlas of the Sensory Organs: sensible and scientific Anatomy offers a close portrait of the entire sensory organs and similar neural structures in one quantity replete with top of the range illustrations of unique specimens, recordings, and various schematic drawings.
