Summary

Human Physiology is intended for the one-semester Human Physiology course often taken by allied health and other biology students. The beginning chapters introduce basic chemical and biological concepts to provide students with the framework they need to comprehend physiological principles. The chapters that follow promote conceptual understanding rather than rote memorization of facts. Health applications are included throughout to heighten interest, deepen understanding of physiological concepts, and help students relate the material to their individual career goals. Every effort has been made to help students integrate related concepts, and understand the relationships between anatomical structures and their functions.

New Features

  • Along with content updates in every chapter, new sections of text, new figures, and/or new clinical application boxes have been added to 75% of the chapters. Examples of new topics that have been added are: Genome and Proteome, Polarization of organelles within epithelial cells, Cable properties of axons, Emotion and memory (with a new figure on the regions of the frontal cortex involved in emotion), Inflammation and Atherosclerosis, Damaging effects of inflammation, Functional residual capacity, Endocrine Function of Adipocyte.
  • Steps have been added to 10 complex figures in the Nervous System chapters (chapters 7 & 8) and the Muscle chapter (chapter 12).
  • eInstruction questions are available with this project and can be found on the Online Learning Center. eInstruction is a wireless student response system that allows for the ultimate in classroom participation, giving you immediate feedback from every student.
