Description

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

 

For one-semester courses in human anatomy.

 

A functional approach to human anatomy

Human Anatomy, the #1 best-selling textbook for the human anatomy course, is widely regarded as the most readable and visually accessible book on the market. Using a functional anatomy theme, the text presents human anatomy as a well-illustrated “story” with the right amount of detail that learners can understand at an introductory level. Analogies and comparative descriptions make anatomical structures more memorable and understandable and explain how the shape and composition of structures allow them to perform their functions.   

 

The 9th Edition features new exercises and questions that help students learn and use anatomical language and interpret real-world medical images while learning basic human anatomy. Building on the functional anatomy approach of previous editions, selected illustrated tables have been enhanced to tell a more cohesive and logical “story” of human anatomy. In the eText edition, dozens of linked videos and animations help students visualize, manage, and master anatomical terms and structures, along with instant cross-referencing that eliminates the need to flip pages to connect concepts across body systems.

 

Mastering A&P is not included. Students, if Mastering A&P is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. Mastering A&P should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

Features

A manageable framework of introductory concepts makes it easier for students to learn anatomical language and to visualize structures

  • New - Roots to Remember vocabulary exercises open each chapter and teach students a strategic and logical way to learn the language of anatomy instead of relying on rote memorization. These activities can be assigned in Pearson Mastering A&P to provide additional practice working with word roots and anatomical terms in context.
  • Reorganized - Selected illustrated tables with an improved design emphasize the story of different structures and help students focus on “big picture” concepts before exploring the detailed information presented in the tables. Examples include:
    • Several descriptions are rearranged into bulleted lists with key terms in boldface type to help students more clearly distinguish common functions among groups of structures.
    • Muscle tables now open with a functional overview of each muscle group to provide a logical foundation for learning the details about the origin, insertion, action, and innervation of each muscle that is presented in the table.

Help students make connections between body systems, regional anatomy, and clinical examples

  • New - Interpreting Medical Images questions have been added to select figures to give students practice analyzing the kinds of images that they are likely to use in a health care setting, including X-ray, MRI, PET, and more.
  • Updated - Clinical Applications are woven into the text at appropriate places, with longer discussions set off in A Closer Look essays.  New research updates include advances in cancer treatments (Chapter 4), transdermal drug delivery (Chapter 5), medications in clinical trials (Chapter 6), discoveries about dietary supplements (Chapter 10), and recent breakthroughs in strengthening synapses through learning and associating synaptic pruning with the development of schizophrenia (Chapter 12).

Help students make connections between the human anatomy lecture and lab courses

  • Unique Focus Figures help students grasp tough topics in anatomy by walking them through carefully developed illustrations that teach key concepts. These large, dramatic layouts provide a context for understanding each concept or process.
  • Side-by-side presentations of artwork with cadaver or photomicrographs help students connect lecture images with key anatomical structures that they may see in the lab.

  • New - Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience available within Mastering. It allows students to highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place – even when offline.
  • Updated - Practice Anatomy Lab™ (PAL™ 3.1) is an indispensable virtual anatomy study and practice tool that gives students 24/7 access to the most widely used lab specimens including human cadavers, anatomical models, histology, cats, and fetal pigs. PAL 3.1 also includes multiple-choice quizzes and practice fill-in-the-blank lab practicals. PAL 3.1 is now accessible and available on all mobile devices and remains assignable in Pearson Mastering A&P.  
  • Dozens of Videos and Animations that instructors favor are linked in the eText and can be assigned in Pearson Mastering A&P.
    • Cat Dissection Videos help students prepare for cat dissection lab and identify key anatomical structures.
    • Bone and Organ Dissection Videos cover major bone and organ dissections to help students prepare for lecture and lab.
    • A&P Flix Animations are 3D movie-quality animations that help students visualize joint movements and origins, insertions, actions, and innervations of more than 65 muscles.
