Experimental and Applied Physiology Laboratory Manual, Eighth Edition, is a comprehensive, stand-alone laboratory manual for the one-semester physiology course taught at the undergraduate level. It can accompany any physiology textbook on the market, and reinforces those principles that are fundamental to all courses on physiology. The strengths of this lab manual are its emphasis on hands-on experiments, a practical balance of background information, and clear procedural instructions.
Introduces undergraduate human physiology students to the basic principles of human physiology through laboratory experimentation. Can be used with most recent textbooks. Each experiment is designed to be performed in a two-hour laboratory period, and most require the use of physiological recording systems. This fifth edition incorporates material on cranial nerves. Other topics include somatic sensation, neural control of skeletal muscles, the cardiac cycle, and digestion. Lacks an index and a bibliography. Wire spiral-bound. Annotation c.

Richard D. Pflanzer teaches at three schools: Purdue University School of Medicine, Indiana University of Medicine, and Indiana University-Purdue University at Indianapolis. He is well known within the ranks of physiologists, with not only his lab manual to his credit, but also a higher-level physiology text (with Saunders).
