Gehirnschnitt-Modell / Brain Section Model: Bauanleitung / by Eduard M. W. Weber

By Eduard M. W. Weber

Das Gehirnschnitt-Modell von Weber ist ein Klassiker des Medizinstudiums. Generationen von Studenten haben durch das Zusammenfügen des Modells die räumlichen Verhältnisse der verschiedenen Hirnstrukturen gelernt und - im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes - begriffen.
Das Modell wurde von einem Studenten für Studenten entwickelt. Dabei ist das Modell so gestaltet, daß trotz der unvermeidlichen Schematisierung die anatomischen Verhältnisse richtig dargestellt sind.
Auch im Zeitalter der multimedialen Darstellung bereitet die räumliche Vorstellung der einzelnen Teile des Gehirns vielen Studenten große Schwierigkeiten. So ist das Gehirnschnitt-Modell nach wie vor ein wertvoller Bestandteil von Unterricht und Studium der Gehirnanatomie.

Atlas of Stem Anatomy in Herbs, Shrubs and Trees: Volume 1 by Fritz H. Schweingruber;Annett

By Fritz H. Schweingruber;Annett B?de?ed??ede??d???rner;Ernst-Detlef Schulze

This paintings, released in volumes, includes descriptions of the wooden and bark anatomies of 3000 dicotyledonous crops of a hundred and twenty households, highlighting the anatomical and phylogenetic range of dicotyledonous crops of the Northern Hemisphere. The first volume mostly treats households of the Early Angiosperms, Eudicots, center Eudicots and Rosids, whereas the second one concentrates at the Asterids.

Presented in Volume 1 are microsections of the xylem and phloem of herbs, shrubs and bushes of 1200 species and eighty five households of assorted existence different types of the temperate region alongside altitudinal gradients from the lowland on the Mediterranean coast to the alpine area in Western Europe. the worldwide viewpoint of the findings is underlined via the research of 500 species from the Caucasus, the Rocky Mountains and Andes, the subtropical quarter at the Canary Islands, the arid zones within the Sahara, in Eurasia, Arabia and Southwest North the United States, and the boreal and arctic zones in Eurasia and Canada.

The presence of annual jewelry in all existence varieties demonstrates that herbs and dwarf shrubs are a great instrument for the reconstruction of annual biomass creation and the interannual dynamic of plant institutions. the typical precept of the anatomical expression of secondary development is a key consider realizing evolution and version strategies in all lifestyles types, from the two cm tall whitlow grass (Draba arctica) within the arctic to the forty m tall beech (Fagus sylvatica) in imperative eu controlled forests. The research opens massive fields of analysis for dendrochronology, wooden anatomy, taxonomy and ecology.

Cancer Drug Resistance (Cancer Drug Discovery and by Beverly A. Teicher

By Beverly A. Teicher

Major specialists summarize and synthesize the most recent discoveries about the alterations that ensue in tumor cells as they improve resistance to anticancer medicines, and recommend new methods to fighting and overcoming it. The authors evaluation physiological resistance established upon tumor structure, mobile resistance in response to drug delivery, epigenetic alterations that neutralize or skip drug cytotoxicity, and genetic alterations that regulate drug aim molecules via lowering or doing away with drug binding and efficacy. Highlights comprise new insights into resistance to antiangiogenic remedies, oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes in healing resistance, melanoma stem cells, and the advance of greater treatments. There also are new findings on tumor immune get away mechanisms, gene amplification in drug resistance, the molecular determinants of multidrug resistance, and resistance to taxanes and Herceptin.

Exercise Physiology: Kinanthropometry and Exercise by Roger Eston, Thomas Reilly

By Roger Eston, Thomas Reilly

This is a mixed set of the 2 absolutely revised and up to date manuals Kinanthropometry and workout body structure Laboratory guide: checks, systems and Data. The in-depth analyses of anthropometry and workout body structure are offered in a single quantity for the 1st time.

Physiology and functional paintings is now a mandatory component of activities and workout technology. those texts were constructed as key assets for academics and scholars of kinanthropometry, activities technological know-how, human flow and workout body structure.

The well-illustrated manuals provide:

* assist in making plans and behavior of functional sessions
* accomplished theoretical historical past on each one subject and updated info in order that there is not any want for extra reading
* seven completely new chapters delivering a stability among kinanthropometry and physiology
* eleven stand-alone chapters in each one quantity permitting the reader to select issues of curiosity in any order
* quite a lot of assisting diagrams, images and tables.

A complete one-stop source, this set provides laboratory approaches subsequent to real-life useful examples, each one supported with applicable facts. moreover, every one bankruptcy is supplemented through a whole assessment of up to date literature, in addition to theoretical overviews, supplying a good uncomplicated creation to every subject.

The Vision Revolution: How the Latest Research Overturns by Mark Changizi

By Mark Changizi

Primates advanced binocular imaginative and prescient (both eyes dealing with ahead) so that you can see in 3 dimensions, serious as they jumped from department to department. larger primates constructed colour imaginative and prescient to higher hunt out ripe fruit. Optical illusions be successful simply because they make the most the restrictions of our visible processing. flawed! All of those ideals are fake, as groundbreaking examine through evolutionary scientist and neurobiologist Mark Changizi now unearths. Changizi's study facilities at the "why" of human imaginative and prescient. Why can we have binocular imaginative and prescient? Why can we see in colour the way in which we do? Why do optical illusions paintings? And why can we take in info by way of reading?a very new invention from an evolutionary perspective?more effortlessly than by means of listening to, which we have now advanced to do over thousands of years? The imaginative and prescient Revolution solutions those questions, and proves, with the special result of Changizi's fieldwork, that the solutions are very various than generally believed. A greatly new viewpoint of human imaginative and prescient is now rising. The imaginative and prescient Revolution is upon us.

The Physics of Living Processes: A Mesoscopic Approach by Thomas Andrew Waigh

By Thomas Andrew Waigh

This full-colour undergraduate textbook, in accordance with a semester path, provides the basics of organic physics, introducing crucial smooth subject matters that come with cells, polymers, polyelectrolytes, membranes, liquid crystals, section transitions, self-assembly, photonics, fluid mechanics, motility, chemical kinetics, enzyme kinetics, platforms biology, nerves, body structure, the senses, and the mind. the excellent insurance, that includes in-depth causes of contemporary speedy advancements, demonstrates this to be some of the most various of contemporary medical disciplines.

The Physics of residing techniques: A Mesoscopic Approach is created from 5 primary sections:

• construction Blocks

• gentle Condensed subject suggestions in Biology

• Experimental Techniques

• structures Biology

• Spikes, Brains and the Senses

The exact concentration is predominantly at the mesoscale — constructions on size scales among these of atoms and the macroscopic behaviour of entire organisms. The connections among molecules and their emergent organic phenomena supply a unique built-in point of view on organic physics, making this a big textual content throughout a number of clinical disciplines together with biophysics, physics, actual chemistry, chemical engineering and bioengineering.

An broad set of labored educational questions are incorporated, as a way to equip the reader with various new actual instruments to process difficulties within the lifestyles sciences from drugs, pharmaceutical technology and agriculture.
