9780071438285: Physiology Demystified

Say goodbye to dry presentations, grueling formulas, and abstract theories that would put Einstein to sleep -- now there's an easier way to master the disciplines you really need to know.

McGraw-Hill's Demystified Series teaches complex subjects in a unique, easy-to-absorb manner, and is perfect for users without formal training or unlimited time. They're also the most time-efficient, interestingly written "brush-ups" you can find.

Organized as self-teaching guides, they come complete with key points, background information, questions at the end of each chapter, and even final exams. You'll be able to learn more in less time, evaluate your areas of strength and weakness and reinforce your knowledge and confidence.

A complete, self-teaching guide to the function and interaction of bodily systems, with coverage of: comparative physiology, functions at the chemical and cellular levels, organic compounds, the cell, physiology of muscle, nerves and glands, sensory physiology, motor functions, autonomic nerves and the endocrine system, air and blood transport, digestive and genitourinary systems, and more.

From the Back Cover:

THE HUMAN BODY FOR EVERYBODY!

If you've ever wondered how the body functions -- how it converts food to energy, registers hunger or thirst, balances on two legs, responds to danger or a pleasing face -- now you can find out. In Physiology Demystified, popular physiology professor Dale Layman provides an effective and painless way to learn or review physiology and body functions, from the chemical level through the entire organism.

With Physiology Demystified, you master the subject one step at a time -- at your own speed. This unique self-teaching guide identifies a set of Key Facts in every chapter, and provides questions at the end of each chapter and part, to reinforce learning and pinpoint weaknesses. The 100-question final exam checks your understanding of the entire book. Use it as a standalone reference or together with Anatomy Demystified, as part of a “dynamic duo” for learning everything about human body structure and function.

This heavily illustrated self-teaching guide gives you everything you need to:
* Learn how human muscles, nerves, bones, organs, glands, connective tissue, and more function and communicate with each other
* Discover the molecular-level workings of your glandular, genitourinary, digestive, cardiovascular, and other systems
* Conquer comparative and cellular physiology
* Find the Latin and Greek origins of many physiological terms
* Learn more in less time, with the most enjoyable physiology course you'll ever take
* Take a final exam and grade it yourself!

A fast, effective, and fun way to learn physiology, Physiology Demystified is the perfect shortcut to a deeper understanding of function and feedback in the human body.
