Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Nobles-Pecora dissection manual of human anatomy
by Nobles, Mia S., M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 11; 10134002
Abstract (Summary)

This manual was written specifically as a guide for the beginner dissector to complete a prosected cadaver that will serve as an effective teaching and learning tool. The dissections are written in a manner that facilitates the preservation of more superfi- cial structures on the right side of the cadaver and deeper structures that otherwise would have been concealed on the left side of the cadaver. This format is ideal for students learning anatomy for the first time, as multiple planes can be compared on the same cadaver. The level of structures dissected and identified in these chapters was established with the understanding that the dissector’s knowledge of human anatomy is at the level of completion of a general undergraduate anatomy survey course.
