The long-awaited 7th Edition by Drs. Bruce M. Koeppen and Bruce A. Stanton, continues this tradition of excellence. With integrated coverage of biophysics and neurophysiologykey experimental observations and examples, and full-color design and artwork, this mid-size text is “just right” for a strong understanding of this complex field.

  • logical and intuitive organ-system-based approach clearly describes all of the mechanisms that control and regulate bodily function.

 

  • Authored by experts with both science and medical backgrounds.
  • More “In the Clinic” and “At the Molecular Level” boxes help readers better understand and apply what they’ve learned.

 

  • New coverage includes expanded discussions of gut and lung microbiota,; the limbic system; the hypthalamus and control of food intake; cardiac and vascular function curves during exercise; new aspects of lipid absorption; GI and metabolic consequences of bariatric surgery, the role of innate lymphoid cells in defense of the respiratory system, molecular mechanisms in normal and pathological muscle contraction; arterial pulse changes with age and the ankle-brachial index; regulation of the blood-brain barrier and cerebral blood flow; the regulation of phosphate; and thyroid hormone mechanism of action.

 

  • Each chapter begins with an all-new bulleted list of questions and ends with key concepts covered in that chapter.
