Is still essentially the most dynamic forces in scientific schooling, offering abundantly illustrated and clinically crucial content material in a quickly increasing box of perform. Now in its 8th variation, this atlas keeps to construct upon its acceptance as a best instructing source, combining the easiest of either worlds-anatomical and scientific.

Beyond Neurotransmission: Neuromodulation and Its Importance for Information Processing

This e-book presents the principles for knowing the mobile and molecular foundation for neuromodulatory results. It illustrates key examples of the jobs performed through neuromodulation in sensory processing, neuromuscular transmission, iteration of motor behaviors, and studying. The ebook additionally underscores the significance of knowledge processing via the anxious approach in destiny stories.

Sample text

Skin fibroblasts: These are different from epidermal cells. These cells proliferate rapidly to repair damage from a cut or wound and are responsible for generating scar tissue, as discussed in the next section. ✓ Liver cells: Normally, these cells divide only rarely. However, if large numbers of liver cells are removed — by surgical removal of part of the liver, for example — the remaining cells proliferate rapidly to replace the missing tissue. This makes it possible to transplant part of the liver of a living donor to a recipient, or to split a single liver from a nonliving donor to two recipients.

Some cells specialize in transporting the products of other cells around the body, or in transporting metabolic waste products out of the body. Some of these transporting cells have other functions as well. Others do nothing but 45 46 Part I: Locating Physiology on the Web of Knowledge that one job through their entire life cycle. Red blood cells are an extreme example of the one-job model. They lose their nuclei during differentiation and thereafter do nothing but transport gas molecules from one place to another.

Just like on a map, a region refers to a certain area. The body is divided into two major portions: axial and appendicular. The axial body runs right down the center (axis) and consists of everything except the limbs, meaning the head, neck, thorax (chest and back), abdomen, and pelvis. The appendicular body consists of appendages, otherwise known as upper and lower extremities. 17 18 Part I: Locating Physiology on the Web of Knowledge Image not available in this electronic edition.
