For the second one version, the textual content and illustrations were reorganized and lots of of the diagrams were redrawn or changed. New sections at the cardiovascular, breathing, digestive and urogenital platforms, and at the eye and the ear were additional, in addition to new textual content on useful actions, palpation and utilized anatomy. moreover, the part overlaying the pinnacle, neck and trunk has been thoroughly reorganized. however, the preliminary goal of the textual content has been retained in order that it continues to be a textbook primarily curious about the musculoskeletal process and its program to human stream

Example text

However, the central nervous system grows so rapidly following closure of the neural tube, that the developing heart and pericardial cavity come to lie in front of the future foregut (Fig. 5a). It is at this time that the single heart tube is formed, and then elongates, developing alternate constrictions and expansions, giving rise to the future parts of the heart. The identifiable parts of the heart tube are the horns of the sinus venosus, the pulmonary atrium, the atrioventricular canal, the pulmonary ventricle, the bulbus cordis and the truncus arteriosus, the latter being continuous with the aortic sac which gives rise to the aortic arches (Fig.

31 32 ANATOMY AND HUMAN MOVEMENT DEVELOPMENT OF THE CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM The cardiovascular system begins to develop during the third week with all the component parts (heart, blood vessels and blood cells) being derived from the mesodermal germ layer. It is the first system to function in the embryo with blood beginning to flow and the first heart beats occurring by the end of the third week. The area giving rise to the heart is initially anterior to the prochordal and neural plates. However, the central nervous system grows so rapidly following closure of the neural tube, that the developing heart and pericardial cavity come to lie in front of the future foregut (Fig.

STRUCTURE The skin consists of a superficial layer of ectodermal origin known as the epidermis, and a deeper mesodermal-derived layer known as the dermis (Fig. 2a). 0 mm), being composed of many layers of cells. The deeper cells are living and actively proliferating, with the cells produced gradually passing toward the surface. As they do so they become cornified (keratinized). They are ultimately shed as the skin rubs against the clothing and other surfaces. The epidermis is avascular but is penetrated by sensory nerve endings.
