Now in its sixth edition, Color Atlas of Physiology covers the entire subject of human physiology and brilliantly reviews everything medical students need to know to pass their pre-clinical physiology exams. Sections include the nerves and muscles, blood, respiration, the cardiovascular system, digestion, and reproduction. Providing a concise review of each thematic unit, the popular and proven layout of the book's double-page spreads with color illustrations and accompanying text allows for speedy comprehension and recall of key concepts...
The purpose of this book remains what it was in the
first seven editions: to present the fundamental principles
and facts of human physiology in a format that
is suitable for undergraduate students, regardless of
academic backgrounds or fields of study: liberal arts,
biology, nursing, pharmacy, or other allied health professions.
Transgenic Mice as Models of Genetic Disease
Several organisms have been studied extensively as genetic models, including Mus musculus (mouse), Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly), Caenorhabditis elegans (nematode), Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast), and Escherichia coli (colonic bacterium). The ability to use these evolutionarily distant organisms as genetic models that are relevant to human physiology reflects a surprising conservation of genetic pathways and gene function.
Lecture Human anatomy and physiology - Chapter 25: The urinary system (part b) include: Tubular reabsorption; sodium reabsorption; reabsorption of nutrients, water, and ions; reabsorptive capabilities of renal tubules and collecting ducts;...
Chapter 1 - The human body: An orientation (part a). This chapter presents the following content: Overview of anatomy and physiology, principle of complementarity, levels of structural organization, overview of organ systems, organ systems interrelationships, necessary life functions,...and other contents.
Lecture Human anatomy and physiology - Chapter 1: The human body: An orientation (part b). This part will be your lab assignment. Make sure you know your anatomical terminology, anatomical regions, body cavities, body positions and orientation.
Why study chemistry in an anatomy and physiology course? The answer is simple. Your entire body is made up of chemicals, thousands of them, continuously interacting with one another at an incredible pace. Although it is possible to study anatomy without much reference to chemistry, chemical reactions underlie all physiological processes—movement, digestion, the pumping of your heart, and even your thoughts. This chapter presents the basic chemistry and biochemistry (the chemistry of living material) you need to understand body functions.
Chapter 3 - Cells: The living units (part a). Just as bricks and timbers are the structural units of a house, cells are the structural units of all living things, from one-celled “generalists” like amoebas to complex multicellular organisms such as humans, dogs, and trees. The human body has 50 to 100 trillion of these tiny building blocks. This chapter focuses on structures and functions shared by all cells.
Lecture Human anatomy and physiology - Chapter 6: Bones and skeletal tissues (part a). When you finish this chapter, you should: Describe the functional properties of the three types of cartilage tissue, locate the major cartilages of the adult skeleton, explain how cartilage grows, name the major regions of the skeleton and describe their relative functions, compare and contrast the four bone classes and provide examples of each class,...
Chapter 9 - Muscles and muscle tissue (part a) provides knowledge of muscle tissues and skeletal muscle. The following will be discussed in this chapter: Types of muscle tissue, special characteristics of muscle tissue, muscle functions, gross anatomy of a skeletal muscle, microscopic anatomy of a skeletal muscle fiber, sliding filament model of contraction, physiology of skeletal muscle fibers,...
This chapter presents the following content: Gross anatomy of a skeletal muscle, microscopic anatomy of a skeletal muscle fiber, sliding filament model of contraction, physiology of skeletal muscle fibers, contraction of a skeletal muscle, muscle metabolism, force of muscle contraction, velocity and duration of contraction, adaptations to exercise.
Lecture Human anatomy and physiology - Chapter 16: The endocrine system (part a). The objectives of this chapter are to: Indicate important differences between hormonal and neural controls of body functioning; list the major endocrine organs, and describe their body locations; distinguish between hormones, paracrines, and autocrines;...
Physiology plays a major role in the scientific foundation of medicine and other
subjects related to human health and physical performance. Pharmacology is the
science which deals with the effects of drugs on living systems and their use in the
treatment of disease. This book is designed to enhance students’ understanding of
physiology and pharmacology via a series of case studies involving human disease
and its treatment.
Traditional university teaching methods focus on informing students in terms of
physiological and pharmacological theory.
Physiology's classic text continues to uphold its rich tradition-presenting key physiology concepts in a remarkably clear and engaging manner. Guyton & Hall's Textbook of Medical Physiology covers all of the major systems in the human body, while emphasizing system interaction, homeostasis, and pathophysiology. This very readable, easy-to-follow, and thoroughly updated, 11th Edition features a new full-color layout, short chapters, clinical vignettes, and shaded summary tables that allow for easy comprehension of the material. ...
Ebook "Essentials of Anatomy And Physiology" this is your textbook for your first course in human anatomy and physiology, a subject that is both fascinating and rewarding. That you are taking such a course says something about you. You may simply be curious as to how the human body functions or you may have a personal goal of making a contribution in one of the healthcare professions. Whatever your reason, this textbook will help you to be successful in your anatomy and physiology course.
T he science of human nutrition and its applications to health promotion continue to gain momentum. In
the relatively short time since the release of the first edition of this Encyclopedia, a few landmark
discoveries have had a dramatic multiplying effect over nutrition science: the mapping of the human genome,
the links between molecular bioenergetics and lifespan, the influence of nutrients on viral mutation, to name
The aim in the preparation of this treatise on the human body has been, first, to set forth in a teachable manner the actual science of physiology; and second, to present the facts of hygiene largely as applied physiology. The view is held that "right living" consists in the harmonious adjustment of one's habits to the nature and plan of the body, and that the best preparation for such living is a correct understanding of the physical self. It is further held that the emphasizing of physiology augments in no
.small degree the educative value of the subject, greater opportunity...
Agesilaus, king of Sparta, when asked what things boys should learn, replied, “Those which they will practise when they become men.” As health requires the observance of the laws inherent to the different organs of the human system, so not only boys, but girls, should acquire a knowledge of the laws of their organization. If sound morality depends upon the inculcation of correct principles in youth, equally so does a sound physical system depend on a correct physical education during the same period of life.
