Preface
Nothing enhances the ecient learning of scientic material more than good artwork. Personal teaching experience has shown us the power of visual learning in the classroom and the positive eect it has on students. A well-done, accurate, and eye-catching illustration captures one's attention and stimulates one's imagination. Visualization of a concept enhances and solidies one's understanding and internalization of it, and a good illustration becomes the template upon which future learning can be superimposed. We were thus excited when we were approached with
the idea of publishing a visual pharmacology book. That is the intent of this book— to provide high-quality illustrative aids that will enhance the learning of the basic principles of pharmacology and present them in a manner that is both scientically rigorous and enjoyable. It is designed for the visual learner in all of us. But can there be illustrations of pharmacology? Isn't the study of pharmacology the memorization of innumerable drugs, their trade names, their doses, and other nonvisual material? Hardly. Just as all other basic sciences have their practical side, pharmacology has its application in the use of drugs for treatment of diseases and disorders. But in the past couple of years, there has been a virtual explosion in understanding of the biologic features and events that underlie the therapeutic action of a drug. It is now possible, with the creative input and insight of an artist's eye, to visualize the anatomical, physiologic, biochemical, and molecular underpinnings of pharmacology. This exciting new aspect of pharmacology is the focus of this book. We believe that this is the rst book to place such emphasis on artwork for the explanation of pharmacologic principles. There is, of course, no better starting point for this task than the renowned work of physician-artist Frank H. Netter, MD, whose illustrations have educated generations of students. Having access to the Netter collection of illustrations was a rare opportunity to approach the subject of pharmacology visually. To provide illustrations of more recently discovered concepts, we called upon James A. Perkins, MS, MFA, and other talented artists to create dynamic new illustrations of the detailed molecular events that underlie drug action. The translation by these artists of recent complex research ndings into clear, precise, and engaging artwork was a pleasure to observe and is a highlight of this book. Three authors with dierent but complementary backgrounds and expertise jointly wrote this book. Our collaboration was intended to provide the most authoritative
and broadest possible coverage of both the basic science and the clinical applications of pharmacology. We have written this book with medical, pharmacy, dental, nursing, and other professional students in mind, hoping that it will serve as a valuable adjunct to their more comprehensive textbooks. Each of us has found the illustrations to be useful in our own learning or teaching of the material. However, this book was also designed to be a stand-alone, discussing pharmacologic principles in a manner that allows a great deal of material to be covered in a concise fashion. It is thus also appropriate for use in an introductory course for undergraduate students or even for the interested general reader. We sincerely hope that all nd the book useful and the
presentation enjoyable.

About the Authors
Frank H. Netter, MD,was born in 1906, in New York City. He studied art at the Art Student's League and the National Academy of Design before entering medical school at New York University, where he received his MD degree in 1931. During his student years, Dr. Netter's notebook sketches attracted the attention of the medical faculty and other physicians, allowing him to augment his income by illustrating articles and textbooks. He continued illustrating as a sideline after establishing a surgical practice in 1933, but he ultimately opted to give up his practice in favor of a full-time commitment to art. After service in the United States Army during World War II, Dr. Netter began his long collaboration with the CIBA Pharmaceutical Company (now Novartis Pharmaceuticals). This 45-year partnership resulted in the production of the extraordinary collection of medical art so familiar to physicians and other medical professionals worldwide. In 2005, Elsevier, Inc. purchased the Netter Collection and all publications from Icon Learning Systems. There are now over 50 publications featuring the art of Dr. Netter available through Elsevier, Inc. (in the US:www.us.elsevierhealth.com/Netter and outside the US:www.elsevierhealth.com) Dr. Netter's works are among the nest examples of the use of illustration in the teaching of medical concepts. The 13-bookNetter Collection of Medical Illustrations, which includes the greater part of the more than 20,000 paintings created by Dr. Netter, became and remains one of the most famous medical works ever published. The Netter Atlas of Human Anatomy,published in 1989, presents the anatomical rst paintings from the Netter Collection. Now translated into 16 languages, it is the anatomy atlas of choice among medical and health professions students the world over. The Netter illustrations are appreciated not only for their aesthetic qualities, but, more importantly, for their intellectual content. As Dr. Netter wrote in 1949, “. . . clarication of a subject is the aim and goal of illustration. No matter how beautifully painted, how delicately and subtly rendered a subject may be, it is of little value as amedical illustrationit does not serve to make clear some medical if point.” Dr. Netter's planning, conception, point of view, and approach are what inform his paintings and what makes them so intellectually valuable. Frank H. Netter, MD, physician and artist, died in 1991. Learn more about the physician-artist whose work has inspired the Netter
