Organized around the central theme of homeostasis, the third Canadian edition of Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems aims to support student understanding of how the mechanisms of body systems and physiological concepts are linked together. Updated to include the very latest Canadian and International physiological research, statistics, and current and relevant examples of the body's function in diseases, exercise, and health, this text is designed to meet the needs of Canadian students and instructors in core physiology programs, as well as related programs such as kinesiology, life science, and nursing. New to the third edition are Check Your Understanding questions at the end of each major section, Further Reading lists which highlight relevant research articles from international journals, Chapter Terminology list of relevant key terms at the end of each chapter, and three Integration of Human Physiology Purple Pages sections that highlight the normal physiological responses to stimuli, such as movement, altitude, and exercise.
Following graduation from Michigan State University in 1966, Dr. Lauralee Sherwood joined the faculty at West Virginia University, where she is currently a Professor in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, School of Medicine. For the past 40 years, Professor Sherwood has taught an average of over 400 students each year in phy...
