This atlas features outstanding full-color photographs of actual cadaver dissections, with accompanying schematic drawings and diagnostic images. The photographs depict anatomic structures more realistically than illustrations in traditional atlases and show students exactly what they will see in the dissection lab. Chapters are organized by region in order of a typical dissection. Each chapter presents structures both in a systemic manner from deep to surface, and in a regional manner. This edition has sixteen additional pages of clinical images—including CT and MRI—that students can compare with cross-sectional anatomic photographs. Many pictures have been electronically enhanced or rescanned for better contrasts.

Perceiving in Depth, Volume 1: Basic Mechanisms

Author: Ian P. Howard

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199877343

Category: Psychology

Page: 672

View: 4313

The three-volume work Perceiving in Depth is a sequel to Binocular Vision and Stereopsis and to Seeing in Depth, both by Ian P. Howard and Brian J. Rogers. This work is much broader in scope than the previous books and includes mechanisms of depth perception by all senses, including aural, electrosensory organs, and the somatosensory system. Volume 1 reviews sensory coding, psychophysical and analytic procedures, and basic visual mechanisms. Volume 2 reviews stereoscopic vision. Volume 3 reviews all mechanisms of depth perception other than stereoscopic vision. The three volumes are extensively illustrated and referenced and provide the most detailed review of all aspects of perceiving the three-dimensional world. Volume 1 starts with a review of the history of visual science from the ancient Greeks to the early 20th century with special attention devoted to the discovery of the principles of perspective and stereoscopic vision. The first chapter also contains an account of early visual display systems, such as panoramas and peepshows, and the development of stereoscopes and stereophotography. A chapter on the psychophysical and analytic procedures used in investigations of depth perception is followed by a chapter on sensory coding and the geometry of visual space. An account of the structure and physiology of the primate visual system proceeds from the eye through the LGN to the visual cortex and higher visual centers. This is followed by a review of the evolution of visual systems and of the development of the mammalian visual system in the embryonic and post-natal periods, with an emphasis on experience-dependent neural plasticity. An account of the development of perceptual functions, especially depth perception, is followed by a review of the effects of early visual deprivation during the critical period of neural plasticity on amblyopia and other defects in depth perception. Volume 1 ends with accounts of the accommodation mechanism of the human eye and vergence eye movements.

This classic guide to human anatomy will be welcomed by students and health professionals alike--as well as anyone fascinated by science. Organized by anatomical region--the most common method of studying the body in anatomy and biology courses--and rigorously indexed, this essential medical reference is the fruit of an intensive collaboration between internationally recognized scientists, dissectors, and graphic artists. It’s astoundingly rich in information: 650 detailed illustrations, including topographical, schematic, and sectional images, provide a comprehensive map of the human body’s organ systems in lifelike full color. From systemic anatomy and the body wall to the central nervous system, visual organs, and orbital cavity, it’s all here. Superbly drawn and meticulously labeled illustrations follow the most current International Anatomical Terminology, adopted by the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists in 1998. The Color Atlas of Human Anatomy is the authoritative, practical guide to the body’s complexities.
