The authors provide a detailed anatomical survey of each sensory organ, covering their ontogeny development , central pathways, and functional mechanisms.
Atlas of the Sensory Organs
The organs themselves are richly illustrated with light and electron microscopic representations of healthy and intact organs or tissues, except where pathology is directly relevant to understanding normal structure and function. Highlights include microanatomy and endoscopic images of the temporal bone, human embryonic specimens demonstrating the histology of the developing ear, and scanning electron micrographs of the organ of Corti and the vestibular receptors.
There are also easy-to-use tables providing an overview of the nerves and arteries of the eye and orbit, and clinical specimens of the eye and optic pathways. A companion compact disk contains high-resolution copies of the color illustrations used in the book. Comprehensive and richly illustrated, Atlas of the Sensory Organs: Functional and Clinical Anatomy provides a detailed portrait of all the sensory organs and related neural systems in a single volume replete with high-quality illustrations of original specimens, recordings, and numerous schematic drawings.
This is followed by the development of the organ, atlas plates and sensory pathways, and ends with recommended reading. This book is expected to continue to thrive as a handy companion for learners of neuroscience for years to come. National Center for Biotechnology Information , U. Yale J Biol Med.
