Introduction to Human Gross Anatomy: A Regional Guide
Youngstown State University | Fifth Edition
Mark D. Womble, PH.D.
This textbook is for an intermediate level, undergraduate anatomy course and is aimed at health sciences students seeking to enter medical, dental, physical therapy, nursing, or veterinary school. Throughout the book, an emphasis is placed on the association between body structure and function, and the positional relationships of anatomical structures. The numerous figures are matched with this regional presentation.
The book is divided into four sections, each of which cover a specific body region (Lower Limb; Head and Neck; Back and Upper Limb; Thorax, Abdomen, and Pelvis). Each body region is examined individually and as a complete unit. The Head and Neck section also includes neuroanatomical descriptions of brain and spinal cord structure, motor and sensory pathways, autonomic nervous system, and the distribution and functions of cranial nerves.
