D 617.6561 G3 F


Geriatric Dentistry: Caring for Our Aging Population provides general practitioners, dental students, and auxiliary members of the dental team with a comprehensive, practical guide to oral healthcare for the aging population. Beginning with fundamental chapters on the psychological, environmental, and social aspects of aging, the book approaches patient care from a holistic point of view. Subsequent chapters show the importance of this information in a practical context by discussing how it affects office environment, decision -making and treatment planning, and the management and treatment of common geriatric oral conditions. Case studies and study questions are used to illustrate application of educational presentations to practice settings. Contributed by leaders in the field, Geriatric Dentistry will strengthen readers’ understanding and clinical acumen in addressing this special population.

Gender Equality Data and Statistics

This data portal is a virtual goldmine of worldwide statistics on gender, based on data sets gathered by the United Nations and the World Bank.

To start, click the Visualize Gender Equality map on the homepage, which visually displays the shifting landscape of labor force participation between 1990 and 2012. The Data Visualization App is home to other related visual aids. Readers can peruse statistics and articles by region (e.g.  East Asia & Pacific, Europe & Central Asia, etc.) and by country. Other resources include Thematic Data, Microdata for Researchers, and World Bank Lending Data.

Comparative Mammalian Brain Collections

The University of Wisconsin, the University of Michigan, and the National Museum of Health and Medicine have come together to assemble one of the world’s largest collections of well-preserved mammalian brains. Now readers can access photographs of the brains of over 100 different species and view stained sections of a variety of brains, including those of humans, sea lions, and otters. Readers can scout the site by the List of Specimens, which is organized both by common name and scientific name or read selections about Brain Sections, Brain Evolution, and Brain Development, among other topics. This site will be of interest to biology teachers or anyone with an interest in the fascinating world of mammalian brains.
