Brief Description of Grays Anatomy: Anatomy of the Human Body Book:-

Gray's Anatomy has been the definitive professional guide of the human body for medical practitioners, students, and laypeople alike since its first publication in 1858. This edition comes in a stylish slipcase and contains the first extensive sections on Osteology, the Articulations, Muscles and Fasciae, the Arteries, and the Lymphatics. ANATOMY OF THE HUMAN BODY

The term human anatomy comprises a consideration of the various structures. THE which make up the human organism. In a restricted sense, it deals merely with the parts which form the fully developed individual and which can be rendered evident to the naked eye by various methods of dissection. Regarded from such a standpoint it may be studied by two methods: (1) the various structures may be separately considered systematic anatomy; or (2) the organs and tissues may be studied in relation to one another topographical or regional anatomy.

It is, however, of many advantages to adding to the facts ascertained by naked eye dissection those obtained by the use of the microscope. This introduces two fields of investigation, viz., the study of the minute structure of the various component parts of the body-histology and the study of the human organism in its immature condition, i. e., the various stages of its intrauterine development from the fertilized ovum up to the period when it assumes independent existence embryology. Owing to the difficulty of obtaining material illustrating all the stages of this early development, gaps must be filled up by observations on the development of lower forms-comparative embryology, or by a consideration of adult forms in the line of human ancestry comparative anatomy. The direct application of the facts of human anatomy to the various pathological conditions which may occur constitutes the subject of applied anatomy. Finally, the appreciation of structures on or immediately underlying the surface of the body is frequently made the subject of special study surface anatomy. SYSTEMATIC ANATOMY. The various systems of which the human body is composed are grouped under the following headings: 

1. Osteology is the bony system or skeleton. 2. Syndesmology is the articulations or joints.

3. Myology of the muscles. With the description of the muscles, it is convenient to include that of the fascine which is so intimately connected with them.

4. Angiology is the vascular system, comprising the heart, blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and lymph glands.

5. Neurology the nervous system. The organs of sense may be included in this system.

6. Splanchnology the visceral system. Topographically the viscera form two groups, viz., the thoracic viscera and the abdominopelvic viscera. The heart, a thoracic viscus, is best considered with the vascular system.
