Human Anatomy 4th Edition

Saladin’s Human Anatomy goes beyond descriptions of body structure, to read as a story that weaves together basic science, clinical applications, the history of medicine, and the evolutionary basis of human structure. Saladin combines this humanistic perspective with vibrant photos and art to convey the beauty and excitement of the subject to beginning students.
New to the Fourth Edition
This fourth edition has numerous textual updates, as well as enhancements to the illustration program. Among the most important changes are
• Scientific and clinical updates on proteasomes (chapter 2), stem-cell technology (chapter 2), fingertip friction ridges and “prune fingers” (chapter 5), congenital hip dislocation (chapter 9), elastic myofilaments and sarcomere structure (chapter 10), microglia and astrocyte functions (chapter 13), folic acid and spina bifida (chapter 13), shingles (chapter 14), accessory nerve anatomy (chapter 15), primary motor cortex (chapter 15), and more.
• Improved columnar format for muscle tables (chapters 11–12).
• New illustrative concepts for mesenteries (figure 1.16), endocrine versus exocrine gland architecture (figure 3.29), modes of exocrine secretion (figure 3.31), cranial nerve pathways (figure 15.24), and others.
routinely choose Saladin hands down, finding Saladin clearly written, easy to understand, and a stimulating, interesting read.
