Vascular Territories: Anterior Cerebral Artery

Vascular Territories

The color intensity is directly proportional to the frequency of distribution.

For example, in this ease, the area in dark red indicates the distribution of the anterior cerebral artery identifiable in 100% of the population. The surrounding area in lighter shades expresses the possible extension of vascularity in relation to individual variability in progressively decreasing percentages.

Essentials of Human Physiology

This ebook provides an introductory explanation of the workings of the human body, with an effort to draw connections between the body systems and explain their interdependencies. A framework for the book is homeostasis and how the body maintains balance within each system. This is intended as a first introduction to physiology for a college-level course.
