Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function - 2nd Edition

Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function - 2nd Edition Lowest new price: $84.00
Lowest used price: $25.65
List price: $97.00
Author: Brian MacIntosh

Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function, Second Edition, provides readers with a detailed understanding of the different facets of muscle physiology. Meticulously researched and updated, this text examines motoneuron and muscle structure and function. It is intended for those who need to know about skeletal muscle—from undergraduate and graduate students gaining advanced knowledge in kinesiology to physiotherapists, physiatrists, and other professionals whose work demands understanding of muscle form and function.

A unique feature of this book is that it combines basic sciences (anatomy, physiology, biophysics, and chemistry) with clinical applications (detection of disease and genetic mutations and training and rehabilitation). Each chapter ends with a section on clinical and other applied aspects of the information presented in that chapter, showing, for example, how specific defects of muscle or nerve cells can result in certain clinical disorders. The result is a thorough understanding of skeletal muscle structure and physiology.

This new edition includes the following:

-The latest research in all areas of muscle physiology

-Major revisions of chapters covering muscle contraction, muscle metabolism, and fatigue

-More than 200 drawings (many of them original) and 30 photos (mostly micrographs), all of which clarify and augment the text

-Pedagogical aids to facilitate comprehension, including key points in the margins, special interest points, an index, and a greatly expanded glossary
Skeletal Muscle: Form and Function, Second Edition, is divided into three parts. Part I presents the structures of the neuromuscular system: muscle, motoneurons, and neuromuscular junctions and sensory receptors as well as the development of these structures. Part II examines muscle function, including neuromuscular transmission, muscle contraction, motor units, and muscle metabolism. Part III focuses on the adaptability of the neuromuscular system. Among the issues it explores are fatigue, loss and recovery of muscle innervation, trophism, muscle training, and injury and repair.

The depth and breadth of the contents, combined with the practical applications, make this book the leading authority on the structure, electrophysiology, and adaptability of human skeletal muscle. It is an excellent text for students and a practical and up-to-date reference for professionals.

Cranial Nerves in Health and Disease

Cranial Nerves in Health and Disease Lowest new price: $58.00
Lowest used price: $23.70
List price: $55.95
Author: Linda Wilson-Pauwels
Brand: Brand: BC Decker Inc.

This second edition presents a thorough revision of Cranial Nerves. The format reflects the shift in teaching methods from didactic lectures to problem-based learning. It maintains the first edition's approach of blending the neuro- and gross anatomy of the cranial nerves as seen through color-coded functional drawings of the pathways from the periphery of the body to the brain (sensory input), and from the brain to the periphery (motor output). The content is targeted to students of the health sciences who may be studying neuroanatomy and gross anatomy for the first time. It will prove to be a valuable quick reference for residents in neurology, neurosurgery, otolaryngology, and maxillofacial surgery.

Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child

Neuropsychological Evaluation of the Child Lowest new price: $70.00
Lowest used price: $17.23
List price: $105.00
Author: Ida Sue Baron

This essential desk reference will meet the demand for a broad and convenient collection of normative data in child neuropsychology. In a clearly written, well-organized manner, it compiles published and previously unpublished normative data for the neuropsychological tests that are most commonly used with children. Far from being a raw collection, however, it integrates concepts and models central to the neuropsychological assessment of children into the discussions of data. All these discussions have a practical, clinical focus. As background, the author considers the current status of child neuropsychology practice, test models, behavioral assessment techniques, observational data, procedures to optimize child evaluation, communication of results through the interpretive session and report writing, and preliminary assessment methods. Then she reviews the tests and data under the broad domains of intelligence, executive function, attention, language, motor and sensory-perceptual function, visuoperceptual, visuospatial and visuoconstructional function, and learning and memory. Written by a seasoned practitioner, this book will be an extraordinary resource for child and developmental neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, child neurologists, and their students and trainees.
