This astonishing book reveals the human body as never seen before. Using the most advanced computer imaging techniques, Inside the Body shows the inner workings of human anatomy. The journey begins with individual cells the tiny building blocks of life. There are extraordinary patterns of red blood cells, magnified thousands of times. Remarkable images then reveal the surprising architecture of tissues, muscles and complex organs that make up the body's living network of functional systems, such as the digestive system and the immune system. Finally, ground-breaking pictures shed light on the most mysterious frontier of the human body-the brain and the senses.
