We Were Soldiers Once ... And Young
Ia Drang, The Battle That Changed The War In VietnamBook - 1992
Sensory organs constitute and elaborate and demanding chapter of anatomical study, and there is an unprecedented amount of nomenclature involved in the field of sensory organs, yet the time allotted to their study is remarkably limited and usually discussed in the framework of the nervous system. This is the first atlas to demonstrate all major sensory systems together in one place, highlighting their neural pathways, from primary sensation all the way to the brain. The contents are based primarily upon light and electron microscopic preparations supplemented by a few special semi-macroscopic anatomical preparations, as well as immunohistochemistry studies. The majority of original specimens and recordings are accompanied by schematic explanatory drawings, in addition to overview figures and tables. Each chapter begins with a detailed anatomical overview, covering the development of sensory organs, the functional aspect of sensory mechanisms and a description of the central pathways relevant to the respective sensory organ. The introductory part is followed by original images from macroscopic, microscopic and functional/clinical materials.
