Celebrated for its atlas-style format, appropriately detailed anatomical illustrations, and exceptionally clear photographs of tissues and cadavers, the Seventh Edition of the award-winning Human Anatomy presents practical applications of anatomy in a highly visual format. Select Clinical Notes feature dynamic layouts that integrate text with visuals for easy reading. Clinical Cases relate clinical stories that integrate text with patient photos and diagnostic images for applied learning. The Seventh Edition is supported by new Practice Anatomy Lab™ (PAL™) 3.0 and MasteringA&P™.

- Clinical Notes, located in the running narrative of each chapter, now feature a more visual and dynamic presentation of information. Select Clinical Notes showcase new dramatic layouts that integrate text, illustrations, and photos in a way that makes reading easy and science relevant.
- Clinical Cases, located at the end of each chapter that closes a body system, now include patient photos and diagnostic images. Every Clinical Case begins with a photo of the patient and his/her background information, making the case personal and real. Diagnostic images (photos, x-rays, and MRI scans) now enhance the narrative.
- NEW! Over 67 new and visually stunning histology photos and other photomicrographs appear in Chapters 3, 4, 5, 13, 18, 19, 20, and 21. The slides prepared for these photos were stained with hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) to match the types of slides that beginning students will encounter in the anatomy lab.
- NEW! Spiral CT scans with 3D volume rendering (see Figures 8.16, 22.12) provide students with unparalleled views of anatomical structures and introduce them to a new imaging technique that is increasingly used in clinical settings.
- NEW! Silhouetted treatment of the bone photos in the bone chapters (Chapters 6-7) feature a cleaner and more contemporary look, making bone markings easier to see.
- The presentation of the Nervous System (Chapters 13-18) has been reorganized to take a “bottom up” rather than “top down” approach to make the nervous system easier for instructors to present and students to understand. Specifically, the discussion of the spinal cord started in Chapter 14 (“The Nervous System: The Spinal Cord and Spinal Nerves”) now continues in Chapter 15 (“The Nervous System: Sensory and Motor Pathways of the Spinal Cord”) so that the sensory and motor pathways of the spinal cord are covered before the brain and cranial nerves in Chapter 16 (“The Nervous System: The Brain and Cranial Nerves”).
- NEW! “Hot Topics: What’s New in Anatomy” boxes highlight current research. These brief boxes, appearing in Chapters 2-5, 10, 13, 19, 21, and 23-28, introduce students to new peer-reviewed anatomical research findings that have been published within the 2 years prior to the publication of the Seventh Edition.
- More effective figure organization makes figures easier for students to understand and study. Figure titles are now located consistently at the top of each figure, to introduce it, and figure part captions are now located immediately underneath their respective figure parts for effective text-art integration and easy-reading. Many figures have been reorganized to chunk information into clearer steps in order to guide students through complex processes.
- NEW! PAL™ 3.0 is an indispensable virtual anatomy study and practice tool that gives students 24/7 access to the most widely used lab specimens, including human cadaver, anatomical models, histology, cat, and fetal pig. PAL 3.0 retains all of the key advantages 2.0, including ease-of-use, built-in audio pronunciations, rotatable bones, and simulated fill-in-the-blank lab practical exams. PAL 3.0 is available in the Study Area of MasteringA&P and on DVD. The PAL 3.0 DVD is available with every copy of this book for no additional charge.
Features of PAL 3.0 include:
- A Layering slider that allows students to peel back layers of the human cadaver and view and explore hundreds of brand-new dissections especially commissioned for 3.0
- Carefully prepared dissections that show nerves, blood vessels, and arteries across body systems
- A Photo gallery that allows students to quickly see thumbnails of images for a particular region or sub-region
- 3D Anatomy Animations of origins, insertions, actions and innervations of over 65 muscles now viewable in both Cadaver and Anatomical Modules and now including a new closed-captioning option to provide textual presentation of narration, to help students retain information and support ADA compliance
- Interactive Histology module that allows students to view the same tissue slide at varying magnifications, thereby helping them identify structures and their characteristics.
- Question randomization feature that gives students more opportunities for practice and self-assessment. Each time the student retakes a quiz or lab practical, a new set of questions is generated.
- Hundreds of new images and views, especially of the human cadaver, anatomical models, and histology
- Turn-off highlight feature in quizzes and lab practicals, giving students the option to see a structure without the highlight overlay
- NEW! Instructor Resource DVD with Test Bank for PAL 3.0 including customizable quizzes and lab practicals assignable through MasteringA&P and CourseCompass™ or for importing into Blackboard and other course management systems
- NEW! MasteringA&P™ is an online learning and assessment system proven to help students learn and designed to help instructors teach more effectively. With Mastering, students can take charge of their learning through practice and step-by-step guidance–at their convenience, 24/7–and instructors can spend more class time where students need it most. Mastering:
Lets instructors easily assign interactive tutorials, assessments, and favorite Pearson media that are all automatically graded.
Provides students personalized coaching through answer-specific feedback and hints.
Motivates students to come to class prepared.
Easily captures data to demonstrate assessment outcomes.
Award-winning art and photo program:
- “Side-by-Side” Figures provide students with multiple views of the same structure, typically pairing an artist’s drawing with a cadaver photograph taken by renowned biomedical photographer Ralph Hutchings. This approach allows students to compare the illustrator’s careful renderings to a photo of the actual structure as it might be seen in the laboratory or operating room.
- “Step-by-Step” Figures break down multifaceted processes into step-by-step illustrations that coordinate with the authors’ narrative descriptions.
- “Macro-to-Micro” Figures help students to bridge the gap between familiar and unfamiliar structures of the body by sequencing anatomical views from whole organs or other structures to their smaller parts. A typical illustration might combine a simple orientation diagram (indicating where an organ or structure is located in the human body) with a large, vivid illustration of that organ or other structure, a corresponding sectional view, and a photomicrograph.
- “Illustration-over-Photo” Figures bring depth and dimensionality to the page and ensure that the illustrated structures are visually proportional in size to the human body.
Time-saving study tools:
- Concept Check questions appear regularly throughout each chapter and allow students to check their comprehension of a completed section before moving on to the next one.
- End-of-Chapter 3-Level Learning System helps build student confidence and understanding through a logical progression from factual questions (Level 1) to conceptual problems (Level 2) to analytical exercises (Level 3). The variety of questions also gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework from the text.
- Concept Links, signaled with blue chain link icons, alert students to related material from previous chapters.
- Clinical Notes, located in the running narrative of each chapter, expand upon topics just discussed and present pathologies and their relation to normal function.
- Clinical Cases, located at the end of each chapter that closes a body system, challenge students to analyze real-life cases. Students are led from a description of a patient’s symptoms through the results of physical exams and lab work. Engaging questions encourage students to review related content in the preceding chapters. Finally, the cases lead students through brief analysis and interpretation of each case to the final diagnosis of the patient.
- Embryology Summaries provide students with highly visual presentations of the formation of organs and structures during embryological development.
- The MasteringA&P™ reference at the end of every chapter shows students which MasteringA&P resources can help them review key chapter material on their own. Within the MasteringA&P ox are references to the chapter-specific material, including Practice Anatomy Lab™ (PAL™) 3.0.
