Download Skeletanatomie (Röntgendiagnostik) / Anatomy of the Skeletal by E. Fischer, J. Henssge, E. Jonasch, D. von Keiser, D. G. PDF

By E. Fischer, J. Henssge, E. Jonasch, D. von Keiser, D. G. Rochlin, G. Viehweger, E. Zeitler, Z. B. Zsebök

Die Strukturierung der speziellen Skeletbande muBte von der Aufgabe ausgehen, daB fur jeden einzelnen Skeletteil nach der Einstellungstechnik die Anatomie, die normale Entwicklung, die Variationen und Mif3bildungen, die traumatischen Veranderungen und die Begutachtungsfragen getrennt abgehandelt werden, wahrend generalisierte oder systematische Erkrankungen, Strahlenschaden und Entzundungen, Geschwiilste und Erbkrankheiten - um nur einige zu nennen - wegen ihres die einzelnen Skeletteile ubergreifenden Charakters oder ihrer grundsatzlichen Erscheinungsbilder zusammen gefaBt werden, weil sich nur auf diese Weise unertragliche Uberschneidungen und Wieder holungen vermeiden lassen. Dieser Aufgabe entsprechend bildet dieser Band eine Zusammenfassung un seres heutigen Wissens auf einem Gebiet, auf welchem vor den Radiologen schon viele Anatomen Generationen wissenschaftlich erfolgreich tatig waren, eines Wissens, zu dem neb en den Anatomen, Pathologen und Radiologen auch Chirurgen, Orthopaden und Padiater intensiv beigetragen haben. Das dadurch zwangslaufig sehr breit gestreute Schrifttum muBte ausgewertet und dem wissenschaftlich Tatigen in einer noch praktikablen shape zuganglich gemacht werden. Hier die richtige Auswahl zu treffen, durfte zu den schwierig sten Aufgaben eines Autors gehoren. Dariiber hinaus solI dieser Band jedoch auch fur die tagliche Praxis ein nutzlicher Helfer und in schwierigen Fragen ein zuverliissiger Ratgeber sein.

Download The Anatomy of Change: A Neo-institutional Perspective by John Damm Scheuer, Steen Scheuer PDF

By John Damm Scheuer, Steen Scheuer

Globalization, the hot economic system, and the IT revolution are a few of the phrases used whilst researchers, in addition to practitioners, attempt to clarify the likely ever-increasing pace of switch in modern society. regardless of the label, organisations this day are dealing with switch in a number of other methods. occasionally they act as 'change-takers', pressured to evolve to adjustments and concepts coming from the surface. At different occasions they're 'change-makers', who foster innovation and alter, giving them a aggressive virtue or a heightened legitimacy. occasionally they strength others to evolve to those adjustments. The analyses offered during this quantity supply abundant facts of the way the point of view of recent institutionalism may also help us comprehend the anatomy of swap, and the way a few actors keep away from entire stasis via using small openings rather than breaking down the full wall.

Download Recent Advances on the Modular Organization of the Cortex by Manuel F. Casanova, Ioan Opris PDF

By Manuel F. Casanova, Ioan Opris

The approach you understand the realm, plan, make judgements and speak your concepts and emotions is dependent upon the functionality and hierarchical association of cortical modules. the power to either supply adaptive responses to our ever-changing atmosphere and to pursue an invaluable position in society is an important challenge confronted through cutting-edge neuroscientists. In essence, the workings of cortical modules outline the character of our soul, making every one folks who we're. This e-book presents a breath-taking view of other views by way of international popular professionals as to the workings of those cortical modules either within the basic kingdom and in psychological disorders.

Download Dawn of the Neuron: The Early Struggles to Trace the Origin by Michel Anctil PDF

By Michel Anctil

In technological know-how, occasionally you should maintain issues uncomplicated. first and foremost discrediting the invention of neurons in jellyfish, mid-nineteenth-century scientists grouped jellyfish, comb-jellies, hydra, and sea anemones jointly below one time period - "coelenterates" - and deemed those animals too just like vegetation to warrant a fearful process. In sunrise of the Neuron, Michel Anctil indicates how Darwin's concept of evolution thoroughly eliminated this concept and cleared the best way for the trendy research of the neuron. as soon as zoologists approved the proposal that various degrees of animal complexity may well evolve, they started to use simple-structured creatures comparable to coelenterates and sponges to appreciate the development blocks of extra advanced apprehensive platforms. sunrise of the Neuron offers attention-grabbing insights into the labours and lives of scientists who studied coelenterate fearful structures over a number of generations, and who approached the difficult beginning of the 1st nerve cells during the method defined in evolutionary concept. Anctil additionally unearths how those scientists, who have been prepared to embody more suitable and paradigm-changing medical equipment, nonetheless published their cultural backgrounds, their societal biases, and their attachments to high schools of inspiration and educational traditions whereas providing their ground-breaking paintings. Their attitudes towards the neuron doctrine - the place neurons are person, self-contained cells - proved decisive within the exploration of the way neurons first emerged. that includes images and historic sketches to demonstrate this quest for wisdom, sunrise of the Neuron is a remarkably in-depth exploration of the hyperlink among Darwin's concept of evolution and pioneering reports and understandings of the 1st developed fearful systems

Download Biomechanics of the Locomotor Apparatus: Contributions on by Professor Friedrich Pauwels Dr. med., Dr. med. h. c., Dr. PDF

By Professor Friedrich Pauwels Dr. med., Dr. med. h. c., Dr. Ing. E. h. (auth.)

The contents of this booklet are dependent nearly solely on merely anatomical researches. those have been prompted by means of questions posed in scientific perform. the consequences are directed to working towards surgeons. Their chronological series results in a step-by-step improvement of theoretical bases and to a innovative rejection of previous conceptions. particularly within the box of orthopaedic surgical procedure, a liable angle is feasible neither with no strong anatomical wisdom, nor with out an concept of sensible relationships. W. Roux had already validated this and he sought after his works of sensible anatomy to be thought of from this perspective. He in particular preoccupied himself with a uniform conception of sensible version. hence it really is comprehensible that the theories ofRoux shaped the foundation from which to begin. Our personal researches appeared firstly to corroborate the information of Roux, at the very least partially. this is often nonetheless obtrusive within the monograph pertaining to fractures of the femoral neck. Later it seemed that ST. KROMPECHER had made a step forwards within the subject of chondrogenesis while he deserted the shear thought postulated by means of Roux and held that compression used to be the one powerful stimulus for the forma­ tion of cartilage. The study in regards to the therapeutic of fractures is predicated in part at the concept of KROMPECHER which was once new at the moment. yet finally progressively more discoveries may well not be defined through this belief which used to be in simple terms somewhat varied from the older theories (1.
