The human body is a complicated and beautiful machine, governed by the laws of physics and chemistry. By understanding its physiology - how it performs its varied functions - it is possible to build strategies for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.

In this extensively-revised edition, a new structure, additional learning features, and an expanded use of artwork, make Human Physiology even more student-friendly than its predecessors.

Human Physiology provides clear explanations of the principles that govern the body's physiological processes and shows how these can be applied. This is the ideal course companion for any student needing a solid foundation in the subject for a future career in human biology, biomedical science, or medicine.

Review:

This welcomed fourth edition builds upon the positive aspects of previous editions and provides a fresh perspective to a complex area of study. Ease of reading and understanding is a key strength for this text and students will obtain detailed content, balanced with key effective learning tools to enhance knowledge exchange. (Dr Jamie O'Driscoll, Department of Sport Science, Tourism and Leisure, Canterbury Christ Church University)

(About the previous edition) Loads of detail, easy to read and useful summaries at the end of topics. Also laid out in a really comprehensive way. (From Amazon UK)
