Physiology, Page 578
Here is a comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date textbook of human physiology that emphasizes fundamental mechanisms and concepts. One of the leading texts in its field, PHYSIOLOGY is known for its direct, scientific approach to the subject matter. Its well-respected authors use an organ system-based approach to clearly describe all of the mechanisms that control and regulate bodily function. This 5th Edition features a greatly increased emphasis on molecular biology and genetic diseases. And, the Nervous System section has been completely reorganized in accordance with the latest trends in medical education. Key experimental observations and examples provide a rich understanding of the body's dynamic processes. Clinical information is emphasized throughout, via shaded boxes that highlight clinical correlations. Self-study problems, as well as a mini-exam available through the evolve site, help students master the material. Greatly expanded and updated coverage of molecular biology and genetic diseases throughout explores how recent scientific discoveries in these areas have expanded our understanding of physiology. The Nervous System section has been thoroughly restructured to reflect the most current trends in medical education.
