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 understa ...show morending 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 to This Edition

Features
  • The innovative pedagogical techniques utilized in Human Physiology helps students to make the most of the information in the text. Each chapter includes the following learning aids:
  • 1) "Refresh Your Memory" boxes at the start of chapters alert students to material covered in previous chapters they may need to review as they begin a new chapter.
  • 2) Take Advantage of the Technology boxes acquaint students with the wide range of resources available on the text web site and within the Multimedia Applications to complement each chapter in the textbook.
  • 3) Clinical Investigations are brief case studies presented at the beginning of the chapters to present a fascinating puzzle. Clues to solving the case are given along the way, as each relevant piece of information is presented.
  • 4) Clinical and Fitness Applications boxes help students understand physiological concepts through medical and exercise applications.
  • 5) Test Yourself Before You Continue Questions are placed at the end of every major section so students can quickly assess whether they are ready to move on to the next section.
  • 6) Interactions pages provide cross-links (with page references) to information in other chapters of the book. The page references are similar to hyperlinks on the internet; in fact they're called HPer Links (a hybrid of hyperlinks and the initials of Human Physiology).
  • 7) Review Activities at the end of each chapter, are organized into three learning levels- Knowledge of Terms and Facts, Understanding of Concepts, and Analyze and Apply your Knowledge. This graduated approach is designed to assist students as they progress from memorization to higher levels of understanding.
