Authors: Lauralee, Sherwood
Lauralee Sherwood's HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY is a market favorite, and in this new edition, technology takes the spotlight! For students, a complimentary text-correlated CD-ROM, PhysioEdge, accompanies each copy of the book. Users will find text icons to mark animated figures on the CD. PhysioEdge focuses on the most difficult concepts -- including Membrane Transport and Acid Base Balance. With a strong diagnostic component, students receive immediate feedback on their answers to quiz questions. PhysioEdge is a smart program too! As a student improves, the question difficulty increases accordingly. For instructors, the enhanced multimedia manager offers powerful PowerPoint slides for all the illustrations and figures from the text, plus several animations. A unique segmentation feature allows users to enlarge figure portions to show more detail and they can be drawn on to highlight ideas. InfoTrac is also available and it is complimentary! This rich database offers users access to hundreds of top periodicals like Physiological Reviews, Science, and Nature. The technology package is rounded out by CNN Today Videos, which are also available on CD. Sherwood has worked hard to make the hallmark features of this title up-to-date, accurate and easy to use. Much of the anatomical and cellular art has been re-rendered. This new, three-dimensional art was conceived to support the great pedagogy instructors have come to expect. Accuracy has been maintained in a presentation that is clear, process-oriented and easy for students to understand. The central text theme of homeostasis has been retained by overwhelming reviewer demand. In support of this theme, Sherwood begins each chapter by showing how the system covered in that chapter supports homeostasis.
