Overview

This sense of wonderment and exploration that fuels Dee Silverthorn's interactive, case-oriented classes has given birth to the second edition of her innovative text, Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach. As in the first edition of her text, Silverthorn goes beyond simply presenting the material—she asks her readers to experience physiology and understand the themes that drive the complexities of our bodies.

Familiar active learning and integration features from the first edition include:

  • Macro-to-micro artwork from the team of William Ober, M.D. and Claire Garrison, R.N.
  • Anatomy Summaries that provide an illustrated anatomical overview.
  • Chapter outlines and chapter summaries
  • Running Problems—Extended problems that ask, "How does the material apply to life situations?"
  • Integrated chapters—Coordinate the information and form a more complete understanding.
  • Reflex pathways and concept mapping—Organize themes and coordinate the details.
  • Graphing questions—Questions to help you practice reading and interpreting graphs.

Additional learning features added for this edition:

  • Diabetes Boxes—Using diabetes as an extended example of physiological integration, select chapters have Diabetes Boxes that highlight the effect of diabetes on body systems.
  • Active learning through mediaMediaLabs promote active learning focused on Internet exploration. Readers are directed, via the free Silverthorn Website, to gatherinformation that applies to the problem at hand.
  • Increased focus on quantitative problem-solving—The three-level learning system from the first edition has now become four levels, with the new Level Four end-of-chapter questions focusing specifically on quantitative problems.

Come see for yourself why Silverthorn's Human Physiology has everyone talking. To find out more about the book and its supplements, look inside to the Owner's Manual on page vi.
