9780323014878: Human Embryology and Developmental Biology, 3e (HUMAN EMBRYOLOGY & DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY (CARLSON))

The completely revised and updated New Edition delivers comprehensive, clearly written coverage of the development of the human embryo from conception to birth. Using a classical morphological approach to embryology, it offers mechanistic explanations for both normal and abnormal human development, enabling readers to understand development in terms of cellular and molecular controls. And, a wealth of reader-friendly features make this resource exceptionally user friendly.

  • Features an exceptionally reader-friendly format that includes Clinical Correlations boxes · Clinical Vignettes · timelines which highlight the progression of development · Key Molecules tables · and end-of-chapters summaries.
  • Uses a wealth of full-color illustrations to provide a realistic representation of developmental concepts.
  • Presents a new chapter that explores the fundamental aspects of molecular mechanisms in development, with coverage of important developmental molecules such as homeobox-containing genes · members of the transforming growth factor family · the fibroblast growth factor family · and the Pax genes.
  • Includes new content on two developmentally important molecules: sonic hedgehog and retinoic acid.
  • Offers updated material on left-ring asymmetry · major signaling centers in the early embryo · cross-sectional organization of the nervous system · the molecular organization of the gut · and the basis for the early establishment of the vascular system.

Review:

"This is an excellent introduction to classical human embryology from a mechanistic and molecular viewpoint. It fills an important niche at a time when medical educators are faced with a conundrum. The genetic basis of disease and development are becoming more stressed in medicine at the same time that there is decreased coverage of classical embryology in the undergraduate medical curriculum, where it has been subjugated to a few lectures in most anatomy courses. The speed of change in the growing field of molecular and developmental biology warrants this revised and updated version. Overall, it improves upon the third edition it replaces, with improved artwork and the new approach to the development of the head that dental students will find very useful." - Mark Jaffe, DPM, MHSA (Nova Southeastern University), from Doody’s Reviews

"This is an excellent content bridge between anatomy and clinical practice: the vignettes are great and the images from the book are available online and downloadable as slides. It could become a best seller as its content and presentation are excellent, and the web-based support is very good." BMA Book Awards 2009 - judges comments
