NOW WITH ACCESS TO FULL TEXT ONLINE PLUS MANY OTHER EXTRAS - POSTED ON STUDENTCONSULT.COMlt;/b> ACCESS IS VIA UNIQUE PIN NUMBER IN FRONT OF BOOK. Here is a comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date textbook of human physiology that emphasizes fundamental mechanisms and concepts. One of the leading texts in its field, PHYSIOLOGY is known for its direct, scientific approach to the subject matter. Its well-respected authors use an organ system-based approach to clearly describe all of the mechanisms that control and regulate bodily function. This 5th Edition features a greatly increased emphasis on molecular biology and genetic diseases. And, the Nervous System section has been completely reorganized in accordance with the latest trends in medical education
