If you are thinking of buying any books, have a good look at them in the library first if possible, to make sure that you personally find them helpful - most undergraduate anatomy textbooks will contain the same information, but the layout, writing style and diagrams will be different and these factors will impact how easy you find them to use. 

For Movement we recommend one of the following core texts. Any of these is a good place to start with MSK anatomy; the first two are my 'go to' textbooks:

Drake, R.L., Vogl, W. and Mitchell, A.W.M. (2015) Gray’s Anatomy for Students. 3rd Edition. Elsevier, Churchill Livingstone  **Available online through the Library.**   
Moore, K.L., Agur, A.M.R. and Dalley, A.F. (2014) Essential Clinical Anatomy. 5th Edition. Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins **Available online through the Library.**    

Moore, K.L. and Dalley, A.F. (2014) Clinically Oriented Anatomy. 7th Edition. Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins    

 

There are some other excellent texts for Movement that you might find helpful, including:

Gilroy, A.M. (2017) Anatomy: An Essential Textbook. 2nd Edition. Thieme. This is written in bullet-point style with excellent illustratations.   

Gilroy, A.M. and Macpherson, B. (2016) Atlas of Anatomy. 3rd Edition. Thieme  

Gosling, J.A., Harris, P.F., Humpherson, J.R. and Whitmore, I. and Willan, P.L.T. (2016) Human Anatomy Color Atlas and Textbook. 6th Edition. Elsevier. This is a book of prosection images with labelled diagrams and text alongside; excellent if you want prosection images and text in one book. **Available online through the Library.**

 

For Control we recommend the following core text for neuroanatomy, which contains text, diagrams, some prosection images and clinical correlates:

Crossman, A.R. and Neary, D. (2014) Neuroanatomy An Illustrated Colour Text. 5th Edition. Churchill Livingstone  **Available online through the Library.**
