Anatomy, to be certain, is the basic origin of scientific perform, however it is way greater than that. at the start, anatomy is a organic technology. there's order and good judgment to the association of the human physique and the association of its components. And, as all sciences, anatomy deals problem and discovery.

Concepts in Anatomy isn't really a textbook, yet extra of a quick instruction manual that's selective instead of encyclopedic in scope, notion instead of specific in its process. It stresses basic ideas, in order to reduce rote studying, and it presents order and path to the research of gross anatomy. Anatomy is inherently complex and complicated; this quantity is helping you're making feel of it in a fashion that still goals to motivate its examine. Richly illustrated with unique drawings, Concepts in Anatomy is a necessary source for someone presently learning or educating the topic, or as a reference for complex researchers.

Some, like the anterior and posterior longitudinal ligaments, are densely fibrous and stretch-resistant (Fig. 7). , plural ofJlavus = yellow), are made of elastic tissue. Here, then, is an important lesson in functional anatomy: vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs, both of which are primarily weight-bearing structures, are tied together by strong and unyielding longitudinal ligaments to prevent destabilization of the spine by gravitational forces. In contrast, adjoining vertebral arches are connected to each other by elastic ligamenta flava that will stretch when muscles, acting through vertebral arches, flex, extend, or rotate the vertebral column.

The same nerve also innervates geniohyoid, the only muscle above the hyoid bone supplied by a spinal nerve. Cutaneous innervation of the neck, front and sides, also is through superficial branches of a nerve plexus-the cervical plexus, anterior rami C2-4. B. Some authors consider the ansa part of the cervical plexus, whose roots then are Cl-4). The roots-meaning here the segmental outflow-of the brachial plexus whose terminal branches distribute to skin and muscle of the upper limb are anterior rami C5-6-7 -8 and T1; those of the lumbosacral plexus, the nerve THE PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM 49 supply to the lower limb, anterior rami L4-5 and SI-2-3.

The Vertebral Column The vertebral column, or "spine," is composed of some 33 vertebrae stacked vertically in single file, and tied together by intervertebral discs and ligaments which convert this column of bones into a stiff yet flexible support structure (Fig. 2). ) in the female; one-fourth to one-fifth of the column length is due to the presence of intervertebral discs. We shrink as we age, because discs lose resiliency and flatten. The vertebrae are classified according to their location in the body.
