Reviews of previous edition: "...a core textbook in cell physiology...The need for such a book is well justified and it fulfills its objectives admirably. It is especially strong on the subjects of signal transduction, membrane biology, ion channels, and neuronal and muscle cell physiology... It is a solid textbook in its field..." - DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS "Cell Physiology Source Book 2e will be useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying cell physiology, cell biophysics, electrophysiology, and biological scientists in many fields. The book is particularly suitable for introducing cell physiology to students with training in the physical sciences and for introducing cell biophysics to students with backgrounds in biology." - BIOPHYSICAL JOURNALAbout the Author:
Professor Sperelakis currently serves as the Joseph Eichberg Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati. A cell physiologist specializing in cellular electrophysiology, he received a B.S. in Chemistry in 1951 and a Ph.D. in Physiology in 1957, both at the University of Illinois, Urbana. Dr. Sperelakis is the author/co-author of nearly 500 scientific articles in journals and books. He has lectured at numerous universities worldwide and at international conferences/symposia. He has also trained many postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, and has been a visiting professor at several foreign universities. Professor Sperelakis has served on a number of journal editorial boards. He is a member of numerous professional societies and has served on the Council for several of them.
