Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach
"Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach"broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach . The newly revised Fourth Edition strengthens the coverage of the "big picture" themes in the study of physiology and helps students tie concepts together in a logical framework for learning. BASIC CELL PROCESSES: INTEGRATION AND COORDINATION, Introduction to Physiology, Molecular Interactions, Compartmentation: Cells and Tissues, Energy and Cellular Metabolism, Membrane Dynamics, Communication, Integration, Homeostasis, HOMEOSTASIS AND CONTROL, Introduction to the Endocrine System, Neurons: Cellular and Network Properties, The Central Nervous System, Sensory Physiology, Efferent Division: Autonomic and Somatic Motor Control, Muscles, Integrative Physiology I: Control of Body Movement, INTEGRATION OF FUNCTION, Cardiovascular Physiology, Blood Flow and the Control of Blood Pressure, Blood, Mechanics of Breathing, Gas Exchange and Transport, The Kidneys, Integrative Physiology II: Fluid and Electrolyte Balance, METABOLISM, GROWTH, AND AGING, Digestion, Energy Balance and Metabolism, Endocrine Control of Growth and Metabolism, The Immune System, Integrative Physiology III: Exercise, Reproduction and Development. For all readers interested in the study of human physiology.
