Vander`s human physiology : the mechanism of body function

It is with great pleasure that we present the thirteenth edition of Vatider's Human Physiology. The cover of this edition reflects some of the major themes of the textbook: homeostasis, exer¬cise, pathophysiology, and cellular and molecular mechanisms of body function. These themes and others have now been introduced in Chapter 1, called "General Principles of Physi¬ology." These principles have been integrated throughout the remaining chapters in order to continually reinforce their importance. Each chapter opens with a preview of those prin¬ciples that are particularly relevant for the material covered in that chapter. The principles are then reinforced when specific examples arise within a chapter. Finally, assessments are pro¬vided at the end of each chapter to provide immediate feed¬back for students to gauge their understanding of the chapter material and its relationship to physiological principles. These assessments tend to require analytical and critical thinking; answers are provided in an appendix.
Users of the book will also benefit from expanded assess¬ments of the traditional type, such as multiple choice and thought questions, as well as additional Physiological Inquiries associated with various key figures. In total, approximately 70 new assessment questions have been added to the textbook; this is in addition to the several hundred test questions available on the McGraw-Hill Connect site associated with the book.
As in earlier editions, there is extensive coverage of exer¬cise physiology (see the special exercise index that follows the

detailed Table of Contents), and special attention to the clinical relevance of much of the basic science (see the Index of Clini¬cal Terms in Appendix B). This index is organized according to disease; infectious or causative agents; and the treatments, diagnostics, and therapeutic drugs used to treat disease. This is a very useful resource for instructors and students interested in the extensive medical applications of human physiology that are covered in this book.
As textbooks become more integrated with digital con-tent, we are pleased that McGraw-Hill has provided Vander's Human Physiology with cutting-edge digital content that continues to expand and develop. Students will again find a Connect Plus site associated with the text. The assessments have been updated and are now authored by one of the author team, Kevin Strang. For the first time we also have Learn-Smart! McGraw-Hill LearnSmart™ is an adaptive diagnos¬tic tool that constantly assesses student knowledge of course material.
We are always grateful to receive e-mail messages from instructors and students worldwide who are using the book and wish to offer suggestions regarding content. Finally, no textbook such as this could be written without the expert and critical eyes of our many reviewers; we are thankful to those colleagues who took time from their busy schedules to read all or a portion of a chapter (or more) and provide us with their insights and suggestions for improvements.
