Fundamentals of Physiology: A Human Perspective Edition 3

FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY, Third Edition, is based on Lauralee Sherw


ood’s best selling Fifth Edition of HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS. While both texts cover the same key topics in a current, engaging, and clinically relevant manner, FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY is briefer, lower in level, and requires less of a background in chemistry, physics, and math than its sister text. Essential content is organized around the central theme of homeostasis, as demonstrated by the system-specific homeostatic model that opens each chapter, as well as the “Focus on Homeostasis” that completes each chapter. New to this edition are process-oriented figures, created to aid today’s visual learners. These figure

s include step-by-step descriptions summarizing and integrating various aspects of essential concepts. Another noteworthy addition is the comparative and early introduction of “Principles of Neural and Hormonal Communication”-a NE

W Chapter 4. This edition also showcases an emphasis on real-life experiences, using analogies as well as new “Clinical Note” icons, which flag clinically relevant material.
