A concise reference, this text covers the origin, insertion, action and innervation of each human skeletal muscle. Over 240 illustrations are included, many updated for this edition.From the Publisher:
Chapter One presents labeled line drawings of the skeleton, which include all structures that are used in describing origins and insertions in the later chapters. A master numbering system is used so that each structure is labeled with the same number in all drawings.
The second chapter describes the various movements of the body, while the rest of the atlas then goes on to describe origin, insertion, action, and innervation of the skeletal muscles.
Each muscle is presented on a separate page with a line drawing. The drawings include the following important features:
1. Bones and cartiledge containing muscle attachment sites are shaded.
2. Adjacent structures are shown.
3. Muscle fibers are drawn by direction.
4. Muscle fibers are shown on the undersuface of bone and cartilage as dashed lines.
5. Tendons and aponeuroses are shown.
Throughout the text, each skeletal muscle is presented in a large format with detail and accuracy.
Headings entitled "Notes" can be found throughout the atlas.
