Download morphology of the brain of Sphenodon


The tuatara is considered the most unspecialised living amniote; the brain and mode of locomotion resemble those of amphibians and the heart is more primitive than that of any other reptile. The lungs have a single chamber and lack bronchi. Both species are sexually dimorphic, males being larger. Adult S. punctatus males measure 61 cm (24 in) in length and females 45 cm (18 in).Class: Reptilia. Journal of Morphology. Volume , Issue 8. Research Article. Free Access. Skull shape and feeding strategy in Sphenodon and other Rhynchocephalia (Diapsida: Lepidosauria) Cited by: RAD Magazine, July , pp. 32 "This book presents correlations between morphology and functional anatomy of the brain, as an atlas . The authors have achieved a nice and clear synopsis of the actual knowledge and possibilities of functional imaging of the anatomy of the brain.3/5(1). Following an introductory chapter, "Comprehensive anatomy of the human brain", the book is divided into a morphological and a functional imaging section. The morphological atlas presents 3D surface images followed by high-definition MR sections acquired in the axial, coronal, and sagittal planes.

The recent advances in neuroimaging techniques, particularly magnetic re- nance (MR), have greatly improved our knowledge of brain anatomy and related brain function. Morphological and functional investigations of the brain using high-definition MR have made detailed study of the brain possible and provided new data on anatomo-functional. Morphology I.

Russell and Aaron M.   Morphometric measures of brain structures can be useful in determining changes related to diverse pathologies. Attempts have been made to characterize brain shape using different metrics, but this continues to be an open challenge. A great variety of diseases can affect brain morphology either globally or in some specific regions. 4.

SPHENODON (Order Rhynchocephalia) (Suneel Singh) Albert Günther () of the British Museum proposed the order name Rhynchocephalia, meaning “beak headed” for the tuatara and its fossil relatives. The common name "tuatara" is derived from the Maori language, which means "spines on the back". Tuatara have been referred to as living fossils, which is a term used for any living species of.
