It was once no ancient twist of fate that Vesalius, the anatomist, preceded Harvey, the physiologist. No apology want be made for attempting to current the elemental proof of anatomy to an individual drawn to the human physique and to participants of any career with a view to need to do something about the actual and psychological difficulties of youngsters, women and men in overall healthiness and in disease. it isn't meant that the reader may still be aware of each factor contained during this book.

Xiphoid process j I I -12th thoracic vertebra 40 THE LOCOMOTOR SYSTEM. I felt as a projecting ridge. This is called the sternal angle. The second costal cartilage articulates with the sternum opposite the manubriosternal joint. The lowest costal cartilage to articulate with the sternum is the seventh. The sternum is a good example of a flat bone and consists of compact bone outside and cancellous bone on the inside. Since it is just under the skin it is used for obtaining samples of red bone marrow (sternal puncture).
Large axons usually have a thick myelin sheath and very small axons have a myelin sheath consisting of only one or two lamellae. It is the myelin sheaths of nerve fibres which make them look white. Hence the term white matter to describe bundles of nerve fibres in the central nervous system. : .. 19. A longitudinal section, and a transverse section of a peripheral nerve fibre and its sheaths. nerve trunks, or simply nerves, similarly look white. The standard staining techniques do not show very thin myelin.
