Organised around the central theme of homeostasis, Human Physiology, 9e, helps students 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 physiology concepts. The vibrant art program and empowering digital resources—including robust 3D animations and rich homework problems—enable students to visualise important concepts and processes. By focusing on core principles and sharing her enthusiasm for the subject matter, Sherwood helps students develop a solid foundation for future courses and careers in the health professions.

Features:
  • 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. New figure-focus questions, designed to check and promote comprehension, ask students to analyse, interpret, infer, and apply the content of 120 key 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" feature a Blooms-based organisation, allowing students to progress from a basic review of key terms and concepts, through quantitative exercises, to a case study that challenges them to apply their knowledge to a patient's specific symptoms, and finally to "Thinking at a Higher Level" questions that encourage them to analyse what they have learned.


  • 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.


New to the Edition

  • UP-TO-DATE COVERAGE: 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 FIGURE-FOCUS QUESTIONS: Designed to check and promote comprehension, these questions ask students to analyse, interpret, infer, and apply the content of 120 key figures.


  • New MindTap Digital Learning Platform: MindTap combines student learning tools, including readings, multimedia, activities, and assessments, into a singular Learning Path that guides students through the course. Instructors personalise the experience by customising authoritative Cengage Learning content and learning tools and adding their own content to the Learning Path. Also includes Aplia for Human Physiology, a comprehensive online homework solution that helps students learn and understand key concepts through focused assignments, and exceptional text/art integration, and immediate feedback.


  • A NEW BLOOMS-BASED ORGANIZATION FOR END-OF-CHAPTER REVIEW EXERCISES: Students progress from a basic review of key terms and concepts, through quantitative exercises, to a case study that challenges them to apply their knowledge to a patient's specific symptoms, and finally to "Thinking at a Higher Level" questions that encourage them to analyse what they have learned.
