About The Solution

Overview

Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY helps students understand how each component of the course depends on the others and appreciate the integrated functioning of the human body. Author Lauralee Sherwood uses clear straightforward language, analogies, and frequent references to everyday experiences to help students learn and relate to the physiology concepts. The updated art program and new digital resources—including robust 3D animations—enable students to visualize important concepts and processes. By focusing on the core principles and sharing enthusiasm for the subject matter, Sherwood provides a solid foundation for future courses and careers in the health profession.


Additional Product Information

Features/Benefits

  • HOMEOSTASIS THEME: The central theme of homeostasis helps students understand the relationship among the body systems. Each chapter begins with "Homeostasis Highlights" and ends with "Homeostasis: Chapter in Perspective," both of which help students to see how a particular system contributes to the body as a whole.
  • PEDAGOGICAL ART: Widespread use of integrated descriptions within figures, including numerous process-oriented figures with step-by-step descriptions, allows visually-oriented students to review processes through figures.
  • RELEVANCY: "Concepts, Challenges, and Controversies" boxes expose students to high-interest and relevant information on such diverse topics as environmental impact on the body, stem cell research, acupuncture, strokes, and more. "A Closer Look at Exercise Physiology" boxes increase awareness of the importance of physical fitness and show physiological impacts of exercise.
  • TOPIC SUPPORT: "Check Your Understanding" questions appear after each major section to help students review the main ideas just discussed. Also, at the end of each chapter, "Review Exercises" include a variety of question formats for students to self-test their knowledge and application of the facts and concepts presented. A "Points to Ponder" section features thought-provoking problems that encourage students to analyze what they have learned, and the "Clinical Consideration," a mini case history, challenges them to apply their knowledge to a patient's specific symptoms.
  • STUDY CARDS: Tear-out study cards for each chapter contain concept summaries and key figures and allow students to study anywhere at any time. The study cards present the major points of each chapter in concise, section-by-section bulleted lists, including cross-references for page numbers, figures, and tables.

What's New

  • NEW: Updated coverage throughout includes information based on recent discoveries. Some controversial ideas and hypotheses are presented to illustrate that physiology is a dynamic, changing discipline.
  • NEW: Check Your Understanding questions have been added after each major section to help students review the main ideas discussed.
  • NEW: Upgraded art program includes more three-dimensional art and many conceptually redesigned or new figures to enhance student understanding.
  • NEW: Many of the topics in the boxes—A Closer Look at Exercise Physiology and Concepts, Challenges, and Controversies—have been updated to expose students to current, high-interest information.
  • NEW: The accompanying Biology CourseMate program provides interactive online learning, study, and exam preparation tools. Biology CourseMate includes an interactive eBook and learning tools including 3D animations, quizzes, flashcards, videos, and more.
  • NEW: Virtual Physiology Labs enable students to conduct experiments online without expensive equipment. By acquiring data, performing experiments, and using that data to explain physiology concepts, students become involved in the scientific process—they don't just watch or read about it.
