Anatomy and Human Movement. Structure and Function by Nigel Palastanga

By Nigel Palastanga

For the second one version, the textual content and illustrations were reorganized and plenty of of the diagrams were redrawn or changed. New sections at the cardiovascular, respiration, digestive and urogenital structures, and at the eye and the ear were additional, in addition to new textual content on practical actions, palpation and utilized anatomy. moreover, the part masking the pinnacle, neck and trunk has been thoroughly reorganized. however, the preliminary target of the textual content has been retained in order that it is still a textbook primarily taken with the musculoskeletal process and its software to human circulation

The bony cochlea consists of two and three-quarter turns of a spiral, and resembles a shell lying on its side. It has a central supporting column of bone (the modiolus) to which is attached a thin lamina of bone partially dividing the spiral into two parts, the scala vestibuli above and the scala tympani below (Fig. 6b). The membranous cochlear duct lines the bony cochlea and is triangular in cross section. The outer wall of the triangle is thickened to form the spiral ligament, the lower part is the basilar membrane while the upper part is the vestibular membrane.

4), being more numerous on its exposed parts, especially on the palms, soles and flexor surfaces of the digits. Here the ducts open onto the summits of the epidermal ridges. Each gland has a long tube extending into the subcutaneous tissue, where it becomes coiled forming the secretory body of the gland (see Fig. 2b). The glands produce sweat, which is a clear fluid without any cellular elements, for secretion (eccrine secretion). The production of sweat is important in temperature regulation, as its evaporation from the skin surface promotes heat loss.

It occurs at the cranial end of the future embryo and gives the bilaminar disc bilateral symmetry. At the same time the extra-embryonic mesoderm begins to develop fluid-filled spaces, which join together forming a large cavity surrounding the whole of the yolk sac and the amnion, except for the mesodermal connecting stalk (Fig. 2a). This space is the extraembryonic coelom, which splits the extraembryonic mesoderm into visceral and parietal layers and separates the amniotic and yolk cavities from the outer wall of the conceptus (Fig.
