Organized around the central theme of homeostasisâ"how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to functionâ"HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY helps you 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 you learn and relate to the physiology concepts. The updated art program and new digital resourcesâ"including robust 3D animationsâ"enable you 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.
