New York/Stuttgart - Thieme Publishers is pleased to announce the launch of WinkingSkull.com (www.winkingskull.com), a free, interactive resource for medical students and people interested in science.

The American Medical Student Association (www.amsa.org), which boasts a membership of 68,000, is excited about the website. "WinkingSkull.com is an excellent enhancement for students to hone their anatomy skills. What could be more beneficial than having your own personal tutor in a must-know subject such as anatomy? In today's academic environment, any assistance students can obtain helps to pave their way," states Michael Ehlert, M.D. national president of AMSA.

An intuitive website design allows quick access to the region of interest. Users can turn labels on or off while studying. A testing feature allows users to drag and drop labels onto the anatomical illustrations while being timed. Users may view test results instantly to measure their proficiency of the material and compare scores with other users.

WinkingSkull.com features highly detailed images, derived from the award-winning "THIEME Atlas of Anatomy" series. For eight years, the medical illustrators Karl Wesker and Markus Voll worked together on the atlas series using a digital drawing board. Thousands of extraordinary anatomy illustrations emerged from that process and 200 of them are now available for all to see on this new website.

Internationally recognized, the atlas series is known for its stunning illustrations and exceptional production quality as well as its effectiveness in assisting healthcare professionals. The ever-expanding series consists of "General Anatomy and Musculoskeletal System," "Neck and Internal Organs," and "Head and Neuroanatomy." DVDs, with the corresponding set of illustrations, are also available for each book.
