This new textbook will compete in both the “slim” segment and the full two-semester market. It will be a briefer, less-expensive alternative for instructors who have always liked Seeley et al’s Anatomy and Physiology, but struggled with the depth of the textbook, covering all of the necessary basics of anatomy and physiology.

Past editions of the text presented the topics of resting membrane potentials, action potentials, and responses of receptor molecules in a separate chapter. For the sixth edition, we have moved these discussions closer to topics where knowledge of these concepts is essential. In the process, this material has been integrated into appropriate discussions within chapter 3 (the functions of cells), chapter 9 (muscle physiology), chapter 11 (nervous system physiology), and chapter 17 (endocrine system physiology).
Coverage of the nervous system has been reorganized, and a new chapter has been added. The new sequence of chapters presents the basic organizational and functional characteristics of the nervous system (chapter 11), the structure and functions of the spinal cord and spinal nerves (chapter 12), the structure and functions of the brain and cranial nerves (chapter 13), and integrative functions of the nervous system in responding to sensory input and the generation of motor responses (new chapter 14).
