Summary

For one-semester courses in human anatomy.

 

A functional approach to human anatomy, available in a multifunctional eText

Human Anatomy, the #1 best-selling textbook for the human anatomy course,is widely regarded as the most readable and visually accessible book on the market. Using a functional anatomy theme, the text presents human anatomy as a well-illustrated “story” with the right amount of detail that learners can understand at an introductory level. Analogies and comparative descriptions make anatomical structures more memorable and understandable, and explain how the shape and composition of structures allow them to perform their functions.   

 

The 9th Edition features new exercises and questions that help students learn and use anatomical language and interpret real-world medical images while learning basic human anatomy. Building on the functional anatomy approach of previous editions, selected illustrated tables have been enhanced to tell a more cohesive and logical “story” of human anatomy. In the eText edition, dozens of embedded videos and animations help students visualize, manage, and master anatomical terms and structures, along with instant cross-referencing that eliminates the need to flip pages to connect concepts across body systems.

 

Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering A&P:


Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.

If your instructor has assigned Pearson eText as your main course material, search for:

0135273013 / 9780135273012 Pearson eText Human Anatomy -- Access Card, 8/e
OR
0135273005 / 9780135273005 Pearson eText Human Anatomy -- Instant Access, 8/e


Also available with Mastering A&P

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering A&P enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.

  

If you would like to purchase both the physical text and Mastering A&P search for:

Author Biography

Elaine N. Marieb

After receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Elaine N. Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College. While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her publications are known.

 

Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She funds the E.N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and has underwritten renovation of the biology labs in Clapp Laboratory at that college. Dr. Marieb also contributes to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory. Recognizing the severe national shortage of nursing faculty, she underwrites the Nursing Scholars of the Future Grant Program at the university.

 

In 2012 and 2017, Dr. Marieb gave generous philanthropic support to Florida Gulf Coast University as a long-term investment in education, research, and training for healthcare and human services professionals in the local community.  In honor of her contributions, the university is now home to the Elaine Nicpon Marieb College of Health and Human Services.

 

 

Patricia M. Brady’s interest in human anatomical form was sparked in college when she learned that the human skeleton could reveal an individual’s age, sex, nutritional status, and even how many children a female had given birth to. She pursued this interest, earning a PhD from Brown University in biological and medical sciences. Dr. Brady has an extensive career as an undergraduate anatomy educator at Brown University, Rhode Island College, Community College of RI, and Johnson & Wales University. At the graduate level, Dr. Brady coordinates and teaches a clinically focused cadaver-based dissection course for the Johnson & Wales University Center for Physician Assistant Studies.

 

Dr. Brady’s commitment to teaching has been recognized throughout her career. In 1991 she received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching from Brown University and in 2011 the Teaching Excellence Award from the Community College of Rhode Island. Dr. Brady embraces innovation in the classroom and laboratory, incorporating Project Based Learning, POGIL activities, cooperative team-based dissection and other active learning strategies into her courses. The driving factor behind these innovations is the desire to aid student learning by making course materials accessible and to make the study of anatomy an active and interactive process. Dr. Brady has shared her tools, techniques, experience, and enthusiasm for student success through professional presentations at national and regional meetings, including those of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the New England Biology Association of Two Year Colleges (NEBATYC), and Strategies to Success Conferences.

 

In addition to teaching, Dr. Brady contributes to the development and use of multimedia course tools for human anatomy instruction, is a contributing author and reviewer for a number of anatomy and physiology publications, and is a reviewer for Anatomical Sciences Education. She is a member of Sigma Xi, the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, the American Association of Anatomists (AAA), National Association of Biology Teachers (NABT), and the PULSE Community (Partnership for Undergraduate Life Science Education).

 

Most mornings Dr. Brady can be found on the water rowing in an eight-oared shell or a single scull, pursuing another passion she developed in college.

 

 

Jon Mallatt earned his Ph.D. in Anatomy from the University of Chicago. Dr. Mallatt is currently a Clinical Faculty of the University of Washington’s WWAMI Medical Education Program at the University of Idaho. Previously Dr. Mallatt served as Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at Washington State University, where he taught human anatomy to undergraduates of all backgrounds for 37 years. WWAMI honored him with their "Excellence in Teaching Award" in 1992, 1993, 1995, and 2000, and 2017. Additionally Dr. Mallatt is an adjunct Associate Professor in the department of Biological Structure at the University of Washington. His particular areas of expertise are histology, human and comparative anatomy, and anatomical drawing, although his research now focuses on the origin and evolution  of consciousness among animals. Dr. Mallatt is an accomplished researcher with 58 publications in a variety of fields ranging from vertebrate evolution to molecular phylogeny to neurobiology and consciousness studies.
