Cell Biology of Medicine

SERIES EDITORS:

Joel Pardee, Neural Essence
In order to learn we must be able to remember, and in the world of science and medicine we remember what we envision, not what we hear. It is with this essential precept in mind that we offer the Cell Biology of Medicine series. Each book is written by faculty accomplished in teaching the scientific basis of disease to both graduate and medical students. In this modern age it has become abundantly clear that everyone is vastly interested in how our bodies work and what has gone wrong in disease. It is likewise evident that the only way to understand medicine is to engrave in our mind's eye a clear vision of the biological processes that give us the gift of life. In these lectures, we are dedicated to holding up for the viewer an insight into the biology behind the body. Each lecture demonstrates cell, tissue and organ function in health and disease. And it does so in a visually striking style. Left to its own devices, the mind will quite naturally remember the pictures. Enjoy the show.

Understanding Breast Cancer Understanding Breast Cancer
Joel Pardee
The mysterious disease of cancer, including breast cancer, has plagued mankind since the dawn of recorded history. Regarding the elusive cause of the disease, the "Father of Medicine," Hippocrates of Athens (460-377 BC), wrote that, "For instability ...

The Actin Cytoskeleton in Cell Motility, Cancer, and Infection The Actin Cytoskeleton in Cell Motility, Cancer, and Infection
Joel Pardee
By now it is abundantly clear that the cells of our bodies have the ability to move because of their actin cytoskeleton. From the earliest cell migrations in the embryo that serve to form the primordial tissue layers to the outgrowth of neurons, the ...

Skeletal Muscle & Muscular Dystrophy Skeletal Muscle & Muscular Dystrophy
Donald Fischman
Histologically, muscle is conveniently divided into two groups, striated and nonstriated, based on whether the cells exhibit cross-striations in the light microscope (Figure 3). Smooth muscle is involuntary: its contraction is controlled by the auton...

How the Heart Develops How the Heart Develops
Donald Fischman
With possible exception of the atomic clock, the heart may be the most perfect machine ever devised. How it develops from a simple embryonic tube is a fascinating story of biology and lends a great deal of insight into the source of heart defects tha...

Cell Origin, Structure, and Function Cell Origin, Structure, and Function
Joel Pardee
In this lecture, we will briefly review the principles of physics, central metabolism, and cell biology that make health possible. This exercise is appropriate for those of us who have set before ourselves the problem of understanding and preserving ...
