PREFACE:

Preface

As we move into the 21st century, there has never been a more exciting time to study physiology. The human genome has almost been sequenced, but we are still a long way from fully understanding the physiology of the human body. We have the genetic sequence for many proteins, but we still don't know what many of them do in the living organism. Research with genetically engineered mice has shown us that we don't always understand the proteins we thought we knew. In more than one instance, researchers have created "knockout" mice that lack a certain protein, only to find that the protein was not as essential to the animal's function as they believed.

Scientists are turning back to whole animal and tissue studies in an effort to understand the integrated function of the body. Molecular biology and its technology are now merely tools to be used in the growing areas of physiology and molecular medicine. There is so much new and exciting information being reported daily, and one of the challenges of writing an undergraduate textbook is deciding what to include, and how to include it. However, as the alphabet soup of nicknamed proteins grows, it becomes more and more important for teachers and students to keep the basic themes of physiology in mind.

KEY THEMES OF THIS BOOK

In the second edition we have kept the four themes that proved so popular in the first edition.

1. Focus on Problem Solving.

One of the most valuable skills we can teach our students is the ability to think critically and use the inforh3nation they learn to solve new problems. A number of features in the book are designed to helpstudents practice these skills as they read, including Concept Checks, v tinning Problems, and Graph and Figure Questions. In this edition we added a fourth level with quantitative problems to the end-of-chapter questions.

2. An Emphasis on Integration.

The second edition of Human Physiology has retained the three chapters (Chapters 13,19, and 23) that highlight the integrative nature of physiology and the cooperative function of multiple systems in the human body when homeostasis is disturbed. In addition, I selected diabetes mellitus as a disease whose causes, complications, and treatments involve nearly every system of the body. You will find special diabetes focus boxes that run throughout the book to highlight the systemic effects of this common pathology.

3. Cellular and Molecular Physiology.

Most physiology research today is being done at the cellular and molecular level, and this edition continues to integrate physiology with cellular and molecular biology. There have been many exciting developments in molecular medicine and physiology since the first edition. For example, electrical signaling is not just for neurons and muscles any more, as you will learn in Chapter 5. And scientists have learned enough about membrane receptors to classify them into four major categories (Chapter 6). As a result, the first section of Chapter 6 has been reorganized, with seven new figures to explain signal transduction and second messenger pathways. The new information on membrane receptors is integrated with discussions of enzymes and membrane transporters to emphasize the commonalities of protein-protein binding: saturation, specificity, competition, and isoforms.

4. Physiology as a Dynamic Field.

In the book, I have tried to present physiology as a dynamic discipline with numerous unanswered questions that merit further investigation and research. It is essential that students appreciate that many of the "facts" they are learning are really only our current theories, especially as new information emerges from the union of the human genome project and basic research.

There is a tremendous need for systems level physiologists to come back into the research field to pull together clinical observations and the information uncovered by cellular and molecular research. I came across a perfect example the other day as I was doing research on guanylin and uroguanylin for this edition (see p. 583).

Leonard Forte et al. began their recent review of guanylin and uroguanylin by describing the whole-animal research from the 1970s that suggested that Na+ sensors in the digestive system monitor salt ingestion and cause release of a blood-borne substance that enhances renal salt excretion. The bulk of their review then goes on to describe what we know about guanylin and uroguanylin, from the genes that encode the guanylin family peptides to their receptors and second messengers. But the key physiological experiments that confirm the relationship between salt intake and salt excretion have yet to be done.

The physiology students of today are the next generation of scientists and healthcare providers, the people who will try to answer the unanswered questions. It is my hope that this book will provide them with an integrated view of physiology so that they enter their chosen professions with respect for the complexity of the human body and a clear vision of the potential of physiological and biomedical research.

1 SPECIAL FEATURES

This textbook has some special features that are designed to make the study of physiology easier. Please take a few minutes to look at the Owner's Manual on page vii. That section explains the symbols, boxes, and features that make this book unique.

More than a Textbook

As we begin the 21st century, computers provide us with an additional dimension to use in teaching. The book itself remains the single most important component of any physiology course, but it takes more than a textbook to improve teaching and learning.

I truly believe that HOW we teach is almost as important as WHAT we teach, particularly in this age of the Internet when students have so many options for gathering information in addition to coming to lecture and reading their textbook. What is the instructor's role in today's classroom? What can we do for our students besides be "talking heads" that convey content? I believe that we should be there to inspire our students and get them excited about physiology. We need to help them understand why the "facts" they memorize today may be "wrong" tomorrow. We are there to bridge the gap between systems physiology, which is what we teach, and physiology as it is practiced in the clinics and the research laboratory. With this in mind, we have assembled an array of innovative supplements for both students and instructors.

The Human Physiology Student Workbook

One of the most common reasons that faculty give for not including active learning in the classroom is that they are afraid that they will not be able to cover all the content their students need to know. The Student Workbook that accompanies Human Physiology is my solution to this problem, and it is derived from one that I use in my own teaching.

The Teach Yourself the Basics section of the workbook provides guided notetaking as students read the text. It is organized with the same headers as the chapter and it asks students to answer basic knowledge questions, such as "List the functions..." or "Define..." The workbook also has a complete list of vocabulary words for each chapter (Talk the Talk). Students can test their understanding with the questions in Practice Makes Perfect and Quantitative Thinking. A section on Maps provides additional lists of terms for students to compile into concept and reflex maps.

For students who want to extend their learning, each workbook chapter includes additional reading and information about the pathology discussed in the chapter's Running Problem. In Beyond the Basics, students and faculty alike will find suggestions for mini-demonstrations (Try It) and a list of articles about topics covered in the chapter. 0-13-019554-5
