Book Description

PHYSIOLOGY is a comprehensive, accurate, up-to-date, and authoritative textbook of human physiology. An emphasis is placed on fundamental mechanisms and concepts and individual concepts are presented via an organ systems approach, clearly describing all mechanisms that control and regulate function. Key experimental observations and examples are included for students who want a better understanding of the body's dynamic process. Clinical relevancy has been enhanced with the addition of shaded boxes highlighting clinical correlations. New pedagogical features include essay questions and a 250-item multiple choice USMLE-type exam.* Emphasizes fundamental mechanisms and concepts rather than isolated facts the "bottom line" information. * Key experimental observations and examples are included, for the student who wants a better understanding of the body's dynamic processes. * Presents individual concepts via an organ systems approach, clearly describing all mechanisms that control and regulate functions. * Covers all the hot topics in physiology, such as membrane transport, neurotransmitters, cell and molecular biology, and more). * Includes a section on neurophysiology for medical schools that have not instituted a neuroscience course. * Clinical information is emphasized throughout, via shaded boxes that highlight clinical correlations.A Brandon Hill Title
