Understanding Anatomy & Physiology 2e: A Visual, Auditory, Interactive Approach


By (author): Gale Sloan Thompson RN

How do you learn A&P best? Whatever your learning style…by looking, listening, or doing, or a little bit of each…the 2nd Edition of this innovative, multiplatform approach to anatomy & physiology is designed just for you.

Tackle a tough subject in bite-sized pieces. A seeming huge volume of information is organized into manageable sections to make complex concepts easy to understand and remember. You begin with an overview of the body, including its chemical and cellular structures, then progress to one-of-a-kind portrayals of each body system, grouped by function. A wealth of full-color illustrations, figures, sidebars, helpful hints, and easy-to-read descriptions make information crystal clear. Each unique page spread provides an entire unit of understanding, breaking down complex concepts into easy-to-grasp sections.

Also available: Workbook to Accompany Understanding Anatomy & Physiology, 2nd Edition

 

“The integration of graphics and text is very engaging  for learners. Thompson silences the academic distractions found in traditional A&P textbooks and emphasizes all the ‘take away points’ in a concise and informative  manner. The task of learning A&P is now less  threatening.”

—Jason Johnson, Saskatchewan Institute  of Applied Science and Technology

“My students absolutely love the Thompson A&P book. It is concise and makes learning the material seem less daunting. It really hits all learning styles with the pictures, videos, text and workbook. I have seen a significant increase in student success since we implemented this book!”

—Shayna Turner RN, MS, Isabella Graham Hart School of Practical Nursing

“The numerous graphics are vivid and relevant allowing the student to focus on the concept rather than multiple paragraphs of reading.  The “Life Lesson” inserts further engage the student by placing covered concepts into real-world situations.  Understanding Anatomy & Physiology is both instructor and student friendly.”

— Nanette Mosser, RMA, BA-HCM, MedQuest College

Cerebral Autoregulation: Control of Blood Flow in the Brain (SpringerBriefs in Bioengineering)


By (author): Stephen Payne

This Brief provides a comprehensive introduction to the control of blood flow in the brain. Beginning with the basic physiology of autoregulation, the author goes on to discuss measurement techniques, mathematical models, methods of analysis, and relevant clinical conditions, all within this single volume. The author draws together this disparate field, and lays the groundwork for future research directions.

The text gives an up-to-date review of the state of the art in cerebral autoregulation, which is particularly relevant as cerebral autoregulation moves from the laboratory to the bedside. Cerebral Autoregulation will be useful to researchers in the physical sciences such as mathematical biology, medical physics, and biomedical engineering whose work is concerned with the brain. Researchers in the medical sciences and clinicians dealing with the brain and blood flow, as well as industry professionals developing techniques such as ultrasound, MRI, and CT will also find this Brief of interest.

Physiology Question-Based Learning: Neurophysiology, Gastrointestinal and Endocrine Systems


This book provides the reader with a range of questions and explanations related to essential aspects of the neural, hormonal and gastrointestinal physiology.  The focus of the book is on understanding the homeostatic control in each system by using questions to challenge the reader to think through physiology.  In addition, functional integration of the different organ systems is highlighted in an area such as neuroendocrinology and in the study of the neural mechanisms in the gastrointestinal tract.

This is the second Physiology Question-Based Learning book, written by Prof. Dr. Cheng. He has taught physiology for thirty years. He has pioneered the international physiology quiz, which is now an annual event at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and at universities around the world. As quiz master, he has designed challenging questions to test concepts and understanding in physiology. This book reflects the style of questions asked during the physiology quiz. The questions are designed to stimulate integrative and homeostatic thinking in physiology.

The Physiology Question-Based Learning books will be helpful to all students of Physiology in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and allied health sciences. This work is written to make physiology learning engaging and enjoyable and to encourage effective teaching in physiology.

Models of Calcium Signalling (Interdisciplinary Applied Mathematics)


By (author): Geneviève Dupont, Martin Falcke, Vivien Kirk, James Sneyd

This book discusses the ways in which mathematical, computational, and modelling methods can be used to help understand the dynamics of intracellular calcium. The concentration of free intracellular calcium is vital for controlling a wide range of cellular processes, and is thus of great physiological importance. However, because of the complex ways in which the calcium concentration varies, it is also of great mathematical interest.This book presents the general modelling theory as well as a large number of specific case examples, to show how mathematical modelling can interact with experimental approaches, in an interdisciplinary and multifaceted approach to the study of an important physiological control mechanism.

Geneviève Dupont is FNRS Research Director at the Unit of Theoretical Chronobiology of the Université Libre de Bruxelles; Martin Falcke is head of the Mathematical Cell Physiology group at the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine, Berlin; Vivien Kirk is an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Auckland, New Zealand; James Sneyd is a Professor in the Department of Mathematics at The University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Marine Physiology Down East: The Story of the Mt. Desert Island Biological Laboratory (Perspectives in Physiology)


By (author): David Evans

This volume offers a comprehensive history of the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory (MDIBL), one of the major marine laboratories in the United States and a leader in using marine organisms to study fundamental physiological concepts. Beginning with its founding as the Harpswell Laboratory of Tufts University in 1898, David H. Evans follows its evolution from a teaching facility to a research center for distinguished renal and epithelial physiologists. He also describes how it became the site of major advances in cytokinesis, regeneration, cardiac and vascular physiology, hepatic physiology, endocrinology and toxicology, as well as studies of the comparative physiology of marine organisms. Fundamental physiological concepts in the context of the discoveries made at the MDIBL are explained and the social and administrative history of this renowned facility is described.
