Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function, 8 Ed
MGH | 2001 | ISBN: 0072908017 | 800 pages | PDF | 14 MB

Human Physiology is a text designed to teach the functions of the human body from a mechanistic approach, stressing homeostasis and control systems. The fundamental purpose of this book has remained undeniably the same: to present the principles and facts of human physiology in a format that is suitable for undergraduates regardless of academic background or field of study. Human Physiology, eighth edition, carries on the tradition of clarity and accuracy, while refining and updating the content to meet the needs of today's instructors and students.

Mechanistic approach. Physiology is explained as a dynamic process of clearly defined chains of causal links. This approach prevents students from viewing physiology as a memorizing exercise -- students must understand causal links and processes within the context of homeostasis. This mirrors the experience they will have in the clinical setting.

Chapter Sections. Most text chapters are broken down into sections which contain their own pedagogy: key words, summaries, review questions, thought questions. Gives more pedagogical support to individual topics within chapters. Breaks information into smaller functional "chunks" which are better grasped by students.
