 The 3 rd edition of Gray's Anatomy for Students builds on

the past and looks toward the future.

It maintains the goals and objectives of the 1 st and 2 nd

editions while at the same time continuing to incorporate

input from our readers and adjusting the content to align

with the evolving educational environment.

One of the maj or focuses of our attention as we prepared

the 3 rd edition was clinical content. The reason for

this is that learning in context has become an important

theme not only in medical education but in anatomical

sciences education generally. We dealt with the clinical

content in two ways. First, we reevaluated and updated

the "In the clinic" boxes, clinical material in the body of

the text, clinical cases at the end of the chapters and in the

online resources, and in the surface anatomy section.

Second, we added new clinical material so that the reader

would have up-to-date examples relating anatomical information

to clinical situations.

In addition to updating and revising the clinical

content, the section on cranial nerves has been significantly

expanded. Understanding these important components

of the nervous system is critical for students at

every level. To facilitate student learning a new figure

summarizing the location, function, and distribution of

each cranial nerve has been added, as has a new figure

summarizing how maj or structures , including cranial

nerves, enter and leave the cranial cavity. We also have

included a new figure illustrating the clinical importance

of vascular structures in and around the cranial cavity.

Another new feature in this edition relates to review

materials. While these useful study aids have always been

available on Student Consult as an online resource, in this

edition the appropriate review materials for each chapter

are listed at the beginning of that chapter. This information

includes an online anatomy and embryology self-study

course, medical clinical cases , physical therapy clinical

cases, self-assessment questions , and more.

We believe that with these changes the 3 rd edition of

Gray's Anatomy for Students is a much improved version of

the 2nd edition and hope that the book will continue to be

a valuable learning resource for students .
