Lauralee Sherwood's HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY is the leading physiology text, and in this edition, she has made this text even more up-to-date, accurate and easy to use. The organization has shifted slightly with a new Chapter 4, "Principles of Neural and Hormonal Communication," that now combines the topics of intercellular communication and signal transduction, hormonal communication, and comparison of the nervous and endocrine systems with those of neuronal physiology, synapses, and neuronal integration. The overwhelmingly praised central theme of homeostasis continues to open and close each chapter and helps students better understand how the systems of the body work together. Media tools for learning and teaching continue to be a key strength. For students, PhysioEdge, a text-correlated CD-ROM with tutorials and quizzes, accompanies each new copy. Text icons mark figures that are animated. PhysioEdge focuses on the most difficult concepts and, with a strong diagnostic component, gives students immediate feedback on their quiz answers. PhysioEdge is a smart program, too ? raising the level of difficulty of questions as a student's performance improves! For instructors, the new PowerLecture tool offers easier Lecture Prep. PowerLecture tool puts all chapter lecture resources into a single PowerPoint tool. Each chapter's lecture slides include these resources, organized by chapter section: all chapter illustrations, diagrams and photos, bulleted points on key content, and all the animations and interactions from PhysioEdge. Plus PowerLecture also offers the ability to edit the lecture slides, to present art in segments, to select and enlarge portions of a figure, to edit or remove labels or to present one label at a time, as well as Word files of the Instructor's Resource Manual and Test Bank for each chapter.
Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY is a carefully condensed version of Lauralee Sherwood's HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. It provides clear, current, concise, clinically oriented coverage of physiology. Many analogies and frequent references to everyday experiences help students relate to the physiology concepts presented. Offering helpful art and pedagogical features, Sherwood promotes understanding of the basic principles and concepts of physiology rather than memorization of details and provides a foundation for future careers in the health professions.

Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY helps students understand how each component of the course depends on the others and appreciate the integrated functioning of the human body. Author Lauralee Sherwood uses clear straightforward language, analogies, and frequent references to everyday experiences to help students learn and relate to the physiology concepts. The updated art program and new digital resources -- including robust 3D animations -- enable students to visualize important concepts and processes. By focusing on the core principles and sharing enthusiasm for the subject matter, Sherwood provides a solid foundation for future courses and careers in the health profession.

Human Physiology, Biochemistry and Basic Medicine is a unique perspective that draws together human biology, physiology, biochemistry, nutrition, and cell biology in one comprehensive volume. In this way, it is uniquely qualified to address the needs of the emerging field of humanology, a holistic approach to understanding the biology of humans and how they are distinguished from other animals. Coverage starts with human anatomy and physiology and the details of the workings of all parts of the male and female body. Next, coverage of human biochemistry and how sugars, fats, and amino acids are made and digested is discussed, as is human basic medicine, covering the science of diseases and human evolution and pseudo-evolution. The book concludes with coverage of basic human nutrition, diseases, and treatments, and contains broad coverage that will give the reader an understanding of the entire human picture. Covers the physiology, anatomy, nutrition, biochemistry and cell biology of humans, showing how they are distinguished from other animals Includes medical literature and internet references, example test questions, and a list of pertinent words at the end of each chapter Provides unique perspective into all aspects of what makes up and controls humans
Textbooks on human physiology abound. However, they are either basic in nature or are rigorous treatments written for medical and graduate students and exceed the level of detail that student pharmacists need. Putting important topics right at your fingertips, Essentials of Human Physiology for Pharmacy describes physiology with just the right amount of detail. The book begins with an overview of cell membrane physiology emphasizing nerve cell function. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the two major regulatory systems in the body, the nervous system and the endocrine system. The author provides in-depth discussions of the muscular, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, and renal systems. She focuses on how tissue and organ function is regulated in order to maintain homeostasis. Underlining the connection between the two disciplines, subsections separate from the actual text relate concepts in physiology to the practice of pharmacy. The clear, concise presentation of important principles and mechanisms, make the book an invaluable resource that you will refer to time and time again.
The new edition has been significantly revised to include an expanded problem section at the end of each chapter with more quantitative examples and some clinical problems where appropriate. The clinical physiology chapter is now broken into several short chapters.
