With a new typographical style and a more spacious format, this eighth edition is designed for maximum effectiveness in learning. The opening chapters cover general anatomical principles and the organization and function of the systems of the body. Subsequent chapters follow the normal dissection sequence. The text incorporates clinical notes, discussions of applied anatomy, and summary tables to help students organize their study. The hundreds of carefully selected figures - including exceptionally fine full-colour plates - have been improved and added to, providing coverage comparable to most atlases. Other new features in this edition include a description of the central nervous system, and new sections on embryology and neuroanatomy, which provide introductory overviews. All terminology is defined in the glossary.
