Puberty: Physiology and Abnormalities


Bringing together the latest knowledge on the growth and development of children and the most important abnormalities of puberty, this comprehensive text presents the current views on the pathogenesis, diagnostic possibilities and therapeutic options of the main deviations from the normal course of puberty (e.g., precocious and delayed puberty). The chain of physical and hormonal changes in the transitional years is carefully followed, including the regulation of the hypothalamic pulse generator as well as the timing of puberty. Further topics include growth disturbances, adolescent varicocele, adolescent gynecomastia, polycystic ovary syndrome, pubertal acne, and the psychosocial development of adolescents with pubertal abnormalities. Written and edited by internationally noted experts, Puberty will be an excellent resource for pediatricians, endocrinologists, gynecologists, andrologists, urologists, family practitioners, child psychologists and public health specialists – all those who will be challenged in their everyday practice with the problems of puberty.

Oncogenes Meet Metabolism: From Deregulated Genes to a Broader Understanding of Tumour Physiology (Ernst Schering Foundation Symposium Proceedings)


Features: Used Book in Good Condition

In 1920s, Otto Warburg described the phenomenon of ‘aerobic glycolysis’, the ability of tumour cells to convert glucose to lactate in the presence of normal oxygen conditions. Warburg’s hypothesis of an altered metabolism in cancer cells found no immediate acceptance, though it was latter confirmed for most human tumours. With the advent of molecular biology the focus in tumour research has shifted towards the search for oncogenes. However, the interest in cancer molecular profiling eventually led to a renaissance of the Warburg effect trying to combine genetic alterations with effects on metabolism with the help of modern analytic technologies to rapidly analyze broad varieties of metabolites in various tissues and bodyfluids (metabonomics).

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.

See. Listen. Do. Discover beyond the book with instructor and student resources online at DavisPlus, including your Davis Digital Version, full-color, narrated animations, interactive exercises, flash cards, and learning objectives/outcomes.

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.
