Vander’s Human Physiology


By (author): Eric Widmaier, Hershel Raff, Kevin Strang

Eric Widmaier (Boston University), Hershel Raff (Medical College of Wisconsin), and Kevin Strang (University of Wisconsin) have taken on the challenge of maintaining the strengths and reputation of Vander’s Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function. Moving beyond the listing of mere facts, it stresses the causal chains of events that constitute the mechanisms of body function. The fundamental purpose of this textbook is to present the principles and facts of human physiology in a format that is suitable for undergraduates regardless of academic background or field of study.

Vander’s Human Physiology, fourteenth edition, carries on the tradition of clarity and accuracy, while refining and updating the content to meet the needs of today’s instructors and students. The fourteenth edition features a streamlined, clinically oriented focus to the study of human body systems. It has also responded to reviewer requests for more clinical applications. Physiology Inquiries are maintained throughout the chapters. These critical-thinking questions associated with figures are just one more opportunity to add to the student’s learning experience.

Biochemistry of Oxidative Stress: Physiopathology and Clinical Aspects (Advances in Biochemistry in Health and Disease)


The strongest point of this book titled “Biochemistry of Oxidative Stress: Physiopathology and Clinical Aspects”, is that the academic and scientific background of the authors/editors guarantee the authorship of a book comprising all aspects of oxidative stress, ranging from very molecular aspects, to clinical application, including the antioxidant therapy. Of particular importance is the fact that the aforementioned aspects are described in the book in a general section and in three different and important pathologies, such as cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer. The importance of these pathologies lays in the fact that, taken separately or together, they represent by far the leading cause of death in the world. Finally, all the chapters have been written by highly recognized authorities in the field of their investigations. At least to our knowledge, this is the first book with this characteristics in the field of oxidative stress.

Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrated Approach


By (author): Julian Pittman

Anatomy and Physiology: An Integrated Approach combines the study of anatomy and physiology into one well-organized and illustrated text. It teaches students about the purposes of organ systems, as well as their interconnections. It educates readers about interactions between systems and how disruption to a single system can impact overall function. The book provides detailed information on the topics covered in the traditional, two-course sequence of college-level anatomy and physiology but avoids overwhelming readers with inessential information. Rather, the material focuses on primary concepts and how to apply them. Linked learning strategies, section-specific references, and short summaries throughout each chapter emphasize and reiterate material, enhancing learning and retention. Anatomically accurate, vibrant, realistic artwork helps readers visualize anatomic and physiological principles. Written as an integrative text, Anatomy and Physiology provides a consistent, balanced discussion of both anatomy and physiology within and across chapters. The book is suitable for courses on anatomy, physiology, and human biology, particularly those designed for programs in health care professions.

Julian Pittman holds a doctorate from the Mississippi State University College of Veterinary Medicine. His formal training is in neuroscience and pharmacology/toxicology, and he has taught anatomy and physiology at Christopher Newport University and William and Mary. Currently Dr. Pittman is Associate Chair of the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at Troy University in Alabama. In addition to teaching, Dr. Pittman maintains an active research program, where his research interests are focused on understanding the behavioral, neuroanatomical, and neurochemical substrates of anxiety and depression. Dr. Pittman is a member of the Society of Biological Psychiatry.
