            A book about the genetic evolution on the jaw from a award winning Stanford scientist and author of over 50 books. The evolution of modern speech, instead of just grunts, led to an important change in human anatomy. The top of the larynx leading to our lungs dropped, making a lar...ger air space above it and behind the tongue that can be used to greatly modify the sounds our exhaling air can make. This has huge advantages, but like many evolutionary advantages it carries disadvantages as well. Thus the advantages of walking on our hind legs is paid for in back pain and hernias, while those of being able to speak are paid for with a higher probability of choking to death since air and food travel the same pipe in the neck. Infants are spared this threat since the dropping of the larynx doesn't occur until about 2 years old, allowing infants to suck and breathe simultaneously. The agricultural revolution had another impact. For hundreds of millennia human women breast fed their children for years, eventually weaning them on the tough, chewy foods they themselves ate. Human developmental systems evolved so that the results of this regime were a healthy pattern of skull and jaw development. But with the evolution of agriculture these patterns began to change. Softer foods for weaning became available. Thus one result of the agricultural revolution has been an upsurge in serious oral problems, related to the soft foods onto which young infants in agricultural societies are usually weaned. Early weaning may lead to distorted patterns of muscle use that change the basic patterns of oral development. The effects can easily be seen by comparing the facial structures of rich and poor people from a few centuries ago. The jaws of the rich tend to be underdeveloped, palates narrowed, and the airways more compressed. Ehrlich and Kahn argue that education is urgently needed, not only within the medical and dental communities, but also among the broader public. They have thus written

            Combined in this pack - you will be a force to be reckoned with during exam time. Your knowledge and understanding of the physical and clinical anatomy will be stronger than ever! Chen's Anatomy MCQ's - Why did we publish this book? We believe that anatomy can be EASY to learn, a...nd more importantly, we believe it can be INTERESTING to learn. Unfortunately anatomy teaching has been too focused on rote learning and memorization of dry facts and images. Modern anatomy should place more emphasis on clinical application and everyday relevance. We are hoping to strike a happy balance of pure text anatomy and clinical anatomy. The questions in this book are designed to mirror questions of the university anatomy exam and provide clinical scenarios that give you clinical bases for understanding and practicing what you've learnt. How to use this book? The book is divided into 3 sections: 1.Multiple choice questions > Quick fire questions to test your knowledge of pure anatomy 2.Clinical scenario questions > In depth question that focuses on common clinical scenarios 3.Short answer questions for discussion > Open ended questions to inspire individual and group discussion We suggest you carry the book with you, quiz yourself and your friends when you have a free moment. Remember that this is not a replacement for your anatomy text, but an adjunct for your studies and revision. We hope this book whets your appetite for further anatomy research and study, Expanding knowledge through self-learning and discovery. Locket's 3D Anatomy Cutouts provides a practical approach to learning human anatomy. It contains a series of paper cutouts which isolate various functional components and anatomical regions. Every student can label, colour in, cut out, and join parts together to create in-depth, three-dimensional anatomical diagrams. This unique book encourages students to become active, hands-on learners away from the dissecting room. It is ideal for all students in health- and medical-re
