Overview

HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY, 7th edition focuses on the mechanisms of body function from cells to systems and is organized around the central theme of homeostasis—how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to function. As an author, Lauralee Sherwood is known for the most up-to-date and accurate coverage as well as strong pedagogy making the text the most effective learning tool. Plus, the program offers a complete complement of media tools for learning and teaching. Additionally, this new edition has an entirely revised art program offering realistic and three-dimensional art as well as new flow diagrams. The new art program helps students visualize difficult concepts and processes for better understanding and mastery of concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
New edition of a text for undergraduate students preparing for health-related careers. It is designed to promote understanding of the basic principles and concepts of physiology rather than the memorization of details. Sherwood (physiology, School of Medicine at West Virginia U.) presents 20 chapters that discuss homeostasis; the plasma membrane and membrane potential; cellular, neuronal, muscle, and cardiac physiology; the central and peripheral nervous systems; blood, blood vessels and blood pressure; body defenses; respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive systems; fluid and acid-base balance; energy balance and temperature regulation; and the central and peripheral endocrine glands. Illustrated in color. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
