Experimental and Applied Physiology Laboratory Manual / Edition 8

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.
