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.
