Excerpt from An Introduction to Biophysics
The scope Of the book has been slightly altered to make it more in accord with the Syllabus of Biophysics suggested by the General Medical Council. Sections I. And II., with the corresponding exercises in Part II., cover the syllabus of the Physical Physiology required by The Examining Board in England of the Royal College of Physicians of London and the Royal College of Surgeons of Eng land. The text, however, has not been cut merely to suit examina tions, but an attempt has been made to view the human body as far as possible as a physical machine. To do this adequately a knowledge of mathematics beyond the stage usually professed by medical and other students of the Biological Sciences is necessary. We have therefore cut down mathematical treatment to the minimum and have indicated Where the student who desires to study the subject further may get additional information.
In spite of efforts to keep the book reasonably small, expansion has taken place. A new chapter on Emulsions and Soaps has been added, and the chapters on Surface Tension, General Receptors, Eye, Ear, Voice and Movements of the Limbs have been almost entirely rewritten. The greatest changes have been made in Part II., as the result Of six years' teaching experience.
