Overview

About the Product

Integrated. Intuitive. Inquisitive. The second Canadian edition of Human Physiology: From Cells to Systems, has been extensively revised 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. In addition to highlighting topics of research within a Canadian context, Human Physiology second Canadian edition delves into the mechanisms of body function from cells to systems and is organized around the central theme of homeostasis – how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to function. Unique to this market leading book are vivid process-oriented figures that incorporate step-by-step descriptions, allowing students to better understand key physiological processes. A brand new feature to the second edition is a section called Integrative Physiology. These pages are distinct and easy to find with their unique purple edges and are designed to enrich student understanding of the issues covered within the chapters. They build upon the concepts introduced within the chapters and complement the physiological processes presented.

Features

  • CengageNOW personalized learning system with ebook

  • Available Virtual Physiology Labs help students put their theory learned from the textbook into practice.

  • A strong effort has been made by the authors to highlight topics of research important to Canadians, and to include statistics, organizations, and researchers from Canadian schools, institutes, and hospitals.

  • The Second Canadian Edition provides students and instructors with updated physiological concepts, new figures and tables, new trends in physiological research, and current and relevant examples of the body's function in disease, exercise and health.

  • NETA, the Nelson Education Teaching Advantage program delivers research-based instructor resources that promote student engagement and higher-order thinking to enable the success of Canadian students and educators.

About the Author

Lauralee Sherwood

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 physiology courses for pharmacy, medical technology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, nursing, medical, dental, dental hygiene, nutrition, exercise physiology, and athletic training majors. She has authored three physiology textbooks: HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: FROM CELLS TO SYSTEMS, FUNDAMENTALS OF HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY, and ANIMAL PHYSIOLOGY: FROM GENES TO ORGANISMS, all published by Cengage Learning/Brooks/Cole. Dr. Sherwood has received numerous teaching awards, including an Amoco Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award, a Golden Key National Honor Society Outstanding Faculty Award, two listings in Who's Who Among America's Teachers, and the Dean's Award of Excellence in Education.

Robert Kell

Dr. Robert Kell, Ph.D. , is an Assistant Professor of work physiology with Augustana Faculty at the University of Alberta, Canada. He teaches courses in exercise physiology and human physiology. His research program focuses on musculoskeletal conditioning and rehabilitation. Dr. Kell has worked with amateur and professional athletes, as well as injured athletes, and those with chronic pain. He regularly presents at national and international conferences, and has published and presented over 50 research papers. His recent research spotlights chronic low back pain, physical work capacity, and musculoskeletal injuries in the workplace. He has worked with many undergraduate students to foster their understanding of the human body and its response to physical stress. Dr. Kell is also involved with the Centre on Aging and Health (CAH) at the University of Regina, and is a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and the American College of Sports Medicine.

Christopher Ward

An Associate Professor in the Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences at Queen’s University. Dr. Ward has taken a leadership role in the development of innovative teaching methodologies to enhance undergraduate, graduate and medical student learning. He is credited with the launch of online courses and blended learning initiatives, and is part of a curricular redesign team responsible for pioneering facilitated small group learning at Queen’s Faculty of Medicine. A cardiac physiologist, Dr. Ward also maintains an active laboratory and graduate research team that focuses on studying the electrical activity of the heart and understanding how ion channel function can be modulated by disease states.

New to this edition

  • To help frame the material with an engaging context, the authors begin each chapter with a section called "Why it Matters".
  • An integrative physiology section (the purple pages) has been added to assist students in understanding how the different systems of the body work together to enable basic human function.
  • Exercise Physiology special topic boxes available online demonstrate to students how the body responds when pushed outside of homeostasis, and demonstrates the limits and robustness of the human body, as well as how the body adapts to inhospitable circumstances.
  • Tear-out Study cards for each chapter contain concept summaries and key figures and allow students to use these cards to study anywhere at any time. These unique cards present concepts in smaller chunks with sentence headings that provide both orientation and review assistance.
  • Information on Fructose and Epigenetics’ influence on the obesity epidemic.
