This superb team of authors and editors provides a highly readable account of 'how the body works.' The book is structured around body systems and includes relevant diseases to illustrate the consequences of what happens when a part of a particular system fails. This book is aimed at students in biological sciences, medicine, dentistry, nutrition, pharmacy, physiotherapy and physical education. The book focuses on the core information required by students but further information is provided in small print for the interested or more advanced student.

Lecture Notes: Human Physiology provides concise coverage of general physiology for medical students as well as students of biological sciences, sport science, pharmacology and nursing. This fifth edition of the ever popular Lecture Notes: Human Physiology has been thoroughly revised and updated by a new international team of authors. The simple structure and systems-based approach remain, with a new clean layout for ease of reading and colour now incorporated to aid understanding. Lecture Notes: Human Physiology: Provides more focus on pathophysiology for clinical relevance Is the perfect introduction for medical and allied health care students Now includes physiology of pain and increased coverage of heart and the vascular system Includes a completely revised chapter on the nervous system.
Designed for use with any A&P textbook, this best-selling laboratory manual features a wide variety of exercises and activities to meet the needs of any anatomy & physiology laboratory course. Known for its thorough, clearly-written exercises, full-color art, and tear-out review sheets, this lab manual gives you a hands-on laboratory experience. It is also accompanied by an interactive website built specifically for the A&P lab course that features pre-lab and post-lab quizzes for every exercise, Practice Anatomy Lab™ 2.0, and PhysioEx™ 8.0. This new lab manual also features a brand-new art program that uses rich vibrant colors, 3D realistic rendering, and many new histology and cadaver photos.
Thorough enough to give students a strong grounding in physiological concepts, but accessible and learner-friendly enough for an introductory text, Human Physiology is ideally suited for single-semester human physiology courses. The text grounds students in cellular communication, the autonomic nervous system, and the endocrine system, giving readers the necessary knowledge base on which to build a critical approach to new and unfamiliar problems. Each chapter pushes students to integrate new knowledge into what they have already learned, increasing learner confidence and concept retention. By helping students master the fundamental physiological mechanisms known today, Human Physiology equips them with the skills to integrate the physiological processes that will be discovered in the future.

Biomechanics of the Human Body teaches basic physics concepts using examples and problems based on the human body. The reader will also learn how the laws of mechanics may help to understand the conditions of the static and dynamic equilibrium of one of the marvels of nature: the human body. The mathematical language used in physics has always been pointed out as responsible for students’ difficulties. So, each concept given is followed by explanatory examples, with subsequent application and fixation exercises. It is a richly illustrated book that facilitates the comprehension of presented concepts. Biomechanics of the Human Body can be useful to students of physical and occupational therapy, physical education, the life sciences, and health care professionals who deal with biomechanics. This book is also recommended for sport practitioners as well as the general reader interested in the mechanics of the human body.

Quantitative Human Physiology: An Introduction is the first text to meet the needs of the undergraduate bioengineering student who is being exposed to physiology for the first time, but requires a more analytical/quantitative approach. This book explores how component behavior produces system behavior in physiological systems. Through text explanation, figures, and equations, it provides the engineering student with a basic understanding of physiological principles with an emphasis on quantitative aspects. Features a quantitative approach that includes physical and chemical principles Provides a more integrated approach from first principles, integrating anatomy, molecular biology, biochemistry and physiology Includes clinical applications relevant to the biomedical engineering student (TENS, cochlear implants, blood substitutes, etc.) Integrates labs and problem sets to provide opportunities for practice and assessment throughout the course NEW FOR THE SECOND EDITION Expansion of many sections to include relevant information Addition of many new figures and re-drawing of other figures to update our understanding and clarify difficult areas Substantial updating of the text to reflect newer research results Addition of several new appendices including statistics, nomenclature of transport carriers, and structural biology of important items such as the neuromuscular junction and calcium release unit Addition of new problems within the problem sets Addition of commentary to power point presentations
The present book is compilation of my lecture notes on Human Physiology. This book is an outcome of an idea I got from my students, when I saw them taking print out of my lecture presentations and get them spirally bounded as book to study during whole semesters, especially examination days. The present compilation of important facts & concepts of human physiological system well supported with self-drawn suitable figures are very helpful in revising entire syllabus particularly during examination days when students are running short of time and plenty is there to study. The present book covers almost all human physiological systems starting from Body Fluids to Muscle Physiology, Cardiovascular System, Endocrine System, Nervous System, Respiratory System, Excretory System, Digestive System and Reproductive System. Every chapter is very well supported with proper illustrations, tables and ray diagrams. Altogether about 50 illustrations are included in the book to make the mechanisms/concept easiest to understand by the students. This book shall be helpful to the students of Medical (MBBS/MD/MS), Paramedical, Basic Sciences viz. Zoology & Applied Sciences viz. Biomedical Sciences, Biotechnology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Human Physiology, Life Sciences, Biosciences, Endocrinology, Pharmacy, Home Science, etc. I thank to readers in advance for their all love given to the book. I wish you all success in future endeavors!
Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY is a carefully condensed version of Lauralee Sherwood's HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. It provides clear, current, concise, clinically oriented coverage of physiology. Many analogies and frequent references to everyday experiences help students relate to the physiology concepts presented. Offering helpful art and pedagogical features, Sherwood promotes understanding of the basic principles and concepts of physiology rather than memorization of details and provides a foundation for future careers in the health professions.
