Human Growth After Birth
Growth is a process which affects every individual from the hour of birth to the hour of death and forms a background to almost every medical discipline, and Human Growth After Birth has been extremely successful in five editions. This book is written in a clear and approachable style and is the only publication which provides an elementary overview of the various manifestations of human growth. Professor David Sinclair, Professor of Human Anatomy, University of Aberdeen, wrote the first five editions, the last of which was published in 1989. Dr Peter Dangerfield, Department of Human Anatomy, University of Liverpool has updated the book for this new edtion while maintaining the unique style and appeal of the text. The new edition covers recent concepts in cell growth, the cell cycly and growth inhibitors. This book also contains the latest information on genes and the human genome. The sections on the growth of the CNS and on reproduction and infertility have been revised in line with current thinking. The references have been fully updated and boxed further reading has been added. Key points are highlighted throughout, and there are a number of new illustrations.
