Overview

Editors Hoffman (Yale University School of Medicine) and Garbers (U. of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center) present work reflecting advances in the various fields of physiology. Of special note is a perspective chapter on principles of membrane structure, as well as two special topic sections on proton and electron transporters and advances in functional imaging in physiology. Coverage includes cardiovascular, cell comparative, endocrine, gastrointestinal, neuro-, renal, electrolyte, respiratory, and muscle physiology. Specific topics examined include estrogens in the nervous system, live optical imaging of nervous system development, and viral-based myocardial gene therapy. B&w and a few color illustrations are included. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
