(BQ) Part 1 book "Case files physiology" presents the following contents: Applying the basic sciences to clinical medicine (approach to learning physiology, approach to disease, approach to disease), clinical cases (fifty-one case scenarios).
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.
The field of molecular biophysics is introduced in the following pages.
The presentation focuses on the simple underlying concepts and demonstrates
them using a series of up to date applications. It is hoped that the
approach will appeal to physical scientists who are confronted with
biological questions for the first time as they become involved in the
current biotechnological revolution.
The field of biochemistry is vast and it is not the aim of this textbook
to encompass the whole area.
PET-CT: A Case-Based Approach provides practical clinical examples of studies performed
with FDG on a state-of-the-art dedicated PET-CT device. Detailed histories
and correlative imaging findings are given in each case to demonstrate the level of
detail required for image interpretation and the capabilities of this instrumentation.
Exercise Physiology for Health, Fitness, and Performance, Second Edition, reprinted by LWW, integrates basic exercise physiology with research studies to stimulate learning, allowing readers to apply principles in the widest variety of exercise and sport science careers. It combines basic exercise physiology with special applications and contains flexible organization of independent units, so instructors can teach according to their own approach.

(BQ) Part 1 book "Renal physiology - A clinical approach" presents the following contents: Getting started-The approach to renal physiology, the body’s compartments-The distribution of fluid, review questions, clearing waste-glomerular filtration.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Renal physiology - A clinical approach" presents the following contents: Maintaining the volume of body fluid-Sodium balance, concentrating the urine-Adapting to life on land, maintaining the serum concentration-water balance, maintaining the serum pH - Acid–Base balance,...
We live in the age of biology—the human and many other organisms’
genomes have been sequenced and we are starting to understand the
function of the metabolic machinery responsible for life on our planet.
Thousands of new genes have been discovered, many of these coding for
enzymes of yet unknown function. Understanding the kinetic behavior
of an enzyme provides clues to its possible physiological role. From
a biotechnological point of view, knowledge of the catalytic properties
of an enzyme is required for the design of immobilized enzyme-based
Plant response to reduced water availability and other abiotic stress (e.g. metals) have
been analysed through changes in water absorption and transport mechanisms and
also by molecular and genetic approach. A relatively new aspects of fruit nutrition are
presented in order to provide the basis for the improvement of some fruit quality
traits. The involvement of hormones, nutritional and proteomic plant profiles together
with some structure/function of sexual components have also been addressed.
A wealth of information has accumulated on the subject of hypertension, and the number of publications dedicated to topics
in this field of study continues to increase. It has become nearly impossible for medical professionals to absorb all of the
diverse information and to gather the information into a coherent theoretical concept and practical approach to treating the
disease, even for those of us who are actively involved in this research specialty on a daily basis.
This compact and concise monograph lays a foundation for the understanding of normal cardiovascular function. Students welcome the book as a practical partner or alternative to a more mechanistically oriented approach or an encyclopedic physiology text. Especially clear explanations, ample illustrations, clinical cases and problems, and chapter-opening learning objectives provide guidance for self-directed learning and help fill the gap in many of today's abbreviated physiology blocks. A focus on well-established cardiovascular principles reflects recent, widely accepted research....
The stomach is located in the epigastrium and the main physiological function of stomach is
reservoir of food and drink, then food and drink are fermenting and grinding by action of
the stomach so disturbance of these functions of the stomach will cause poor appetite,
capacity for only small amount of food, and pain in the epigastric region. Of course, only in
cooperation with the spleen's function digesting and transforming food and drink can be
performed successfully by the stomach's function of receiving, to receive, digest and
transform the food and drink.
ECOLOGY OF INDIVIDUAL INSECTS
THE INDIVIDUAL ORGANISM IS A FUNDAMENTAL unit of ecology. Organisms interact with their environment and affect ecosystem processes largely through their cumulative physiological and behavioral responses to environmental variation. Individual success in ﬁnding and using necessary habitats and resources to gain reproductive advantage determines ﬁtness.
The advances in ultra-large-scale integration (ULSI) technology mainly have been
based on downscaling of the minimum feature size of complementary metal-oxide
semiconductor (CMOS) transistors. The limit of scaling is approaching and there
are unsolved problems such as the number of electrons in the device’s active region.
If this number is reduced to less than 10 electrons (or holes), quantum fluctuation
errors will occur and the gate insulator thickness will become too small to block
quantum mechanical tunneling, which may result in unacceptably large leakage
The goal of this book is to show how usability metrics can be a powerful tool for
successfully evaluating the user experience for any product. When some people
think about usability metrics, they feel overwhelmed by complicated formulas,
contradictory research, and advanced statistical methods. We hope to demystify
much of the research and focus on the practical application of usability metrics.
We’ll walk you through a step-by-step approach to collecting, analyzing, and
presenting usability metrics.
4 Resource Allocation
INSECTS ALLOCATE ACQUIRED RESOURCES IN VARIOUS WAYS, DEPENDING on the energy and nutrient requirements of their physiological and behavioral processes. In addition to basic metabolism, foraging, growth, and reproduction, individual organisms also allocate resources.
This edited volume contains a selection of chapters that are an outgrowth of the European
Conference on Mathematical and Theoretical Biology (ECMTB05, Dresden,
Germany, July 2005). The peer-reviewed contributions show that mathematical and
computational approaches are absolutely essential for solving central problems in the
life sciences, ranging from the organizational level of individual cells to the dynamics
of whole populations.
In food matrices, bioactivity of polyphenols like all dietary antioxidants in the human body,
depends firstly on their bioaccessibility (i.e. the release from the food matrix) and
bioavailability (i.e. absorbable fraction that can be used for specific physiological functions in
organs). Polyphenols of comparatively high bioavailability include isoflavonids (absorption
cover 50%, Bohn, 2010), while e.g. anthocyanins are of very low bioavailability, usually ca.
1.7% (Sakakibara et al., 2009). The prerequisite for bioavailability of any compound is its
bioaccessibility in the gut.
