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.

Fundamentals of Human Physiology was conceived to meet the needs of students and professors struggling with the complexity and depth of the larger, more detailed human physiology textbooks currently available. In addition to being more concise and focusing on the basics of human physiology, this text is smaller in physical size, allowing for a cheaper, easier choice for instructors.

Fundamentals of Human Physiology: A Comparative Examination is written from a comparative perspective using examples from animal physiology to illustrate key principles and shed light on what is known about physiological mechanisms in humans. Over the course of ten chapters the book examines and describes these various mechanisms in detail. Fundamentals of Human Physiology begins with an introduction to histology and the organization of the body. It then goes on to focused explorations of cell, sensory, and muscle physiology, as well as neurophysiology. The text also covers the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and digestive systems. The final chapter is devoted to endocrinology. Students learn about cell structure and function, cell signaling, and transduction pathways. They explore the nervous system including somatic and visceral sensation. They become familiar with skeletal muscle, the heart and vascular systems, the lungs, and gas transport mechanisms. Each chapter concludes with a summary that support identification and retention of important concepts. Fundamentals of Human Physiology is well suited to undergraduate courses in human physiology or anatomy. M. Beth Zimmer, who earned her Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, is a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Ferris State University where her course offerings include human anatomy and physiology, neurobiology, and current topics in biology. In addition to teaching, Dr. Zimmer is the biology research seminar coordinator and serves on multiple committees including the Academic Senate. Her professional writing has appeared in Respiratory Physiology and Neurobiology, the Journal of Spinal Cord Medicine, and Experimental Neurology.

We all have a natural curiosity about how the human body works. The goal of Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems is to foster this curiosity and enthusiasm while effectively teaching physiology as an enjoyable and comprehensible subject. Organized around a central theme of homeostasis, the text offers uncluttered and streamlined content that integrates topics and ideas throughout. Written for Canadian students in life science, zoology, kinesiology, nursing, and physical therapy, this edition continues to highlight important Canadian research, statistics, and researchers as well as current examples of the body's function in disease, exercise, and health. The new "Clinical Connection" feature provides even more real world applications and connections to engage students and enhance learning.

#1 selling text with great explanations and just enough anatomy! Clear explanations and a solid learning framework have been market tested and refined. Fox helps students master the fundamentals by providing appropriate anatomical detail. Human Physiology, Fourteenth Edition, is intended for the one-semester Human Physiology course often taken by allied health and 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 the book 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. Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook.

Since the first English edition of this book appeared three years ago, the authors have received many useful comments from readers. In preparing this amended edition we have carefully examined each chapter, improving and expanding the text where necessary; in the process, we have been greatly helped by their remarks. Further commentary on this edition will be much appreciated. Again, I should like to express the gratitude of all the authors to the staff of Springer-Verlag for expediting the publication of the book. Kiel, Germany, July 1981 ROBERT F. SCHMIDT Preface to the First Edition In the field of sensory physiology we are concerned with what our sense organs and the associated central nervous structures - can do and how that perform ance is achieved. Research here is not limited to description of the physi cochemical reactions taking place in these structures; the conditions under which sensations and perceptions arise and the rules that govern them are also of fundamental interest. Sensory physiology thus demands the attention of everyone who wishes to - or must - delve into the potentialities and limitations of human experience.

For courses in two-semester A&P. Using Art Effectively to Teach the Toughest Topics in A&P Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps students succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy. With the 11th Edition, the author team draws from recent research exploring how students use and digest visual information to help students use art more effectively to learn A&P. New book features encourage students to view and consider figures in the textbook, and new narrated videos guide students through complex physiology figures to help them deconstruct and better understand complicated processes. Instructors can also request a new handbook by Lori Garrett, entitled The Art of Teaching A&P: Six Easy Lessons to Improve Student Learning , which explores some of the most common challenges encountered when using art to teach A&P, alongside strategies to address these challenges. Also Available with Mastering A&P Mastering(tm) A&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to engage students and improve results by helping students stay on track in the course and quickly master challenging A&P concepts. Features in the text are supported by Mastering A&P assignments, including new SmartArt Videos, Interactive Physiology 2.0, Dynamic Study Modules, Learning Catalytics, Spotlight Figure Coaching Activities, lab study tools, Get Ready for A&P, plus a variety of Art Labeling Questions, Clinical Application Questions, and more.
