Buy Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach with MasteringA&P access card 6e (ISBN 9781447963196) if you need access to Mastering as well, and save money on this brilliant resource. Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach. The newly revised Sixth Edition introduces a major reorganization of the early chapters to provide the best foundation for the course and new art features that streamline review and essential topics so that students can access them more easily on an as-needed basis. Features: Four chapters on Integrative Physiology (chapters 6, 13, 20, and 25) demonstrate how physiological processes work together in an integrated system. These chapters also explore how body systems influence each other and show that overall systems are often more complicated than the sum of their component parts. Interactive pedagogyencourages students to assess their knowledge as they read rather than waiting until the end of the chapter:Background Basics sections at the beginning of each chapter encourage students to revisit and review topics for the upcoming chapter. Concept Links (signaled with white and blue chain link symbols) help students locate material they need to review. Concept Checks are placed at intervals throughout the chapters and ask students to test their understanding before continuing to the next topic. Figure and graph questions promote analytical skills by encouraging students to interpret data and information. Running Problems appear in segments throughout each chapter and require students to apply what they have learned to a real life pathophysiology case study. The end-of-chapter, four-level learning system helps build student confidence and understanding by progressing from factual questions to conceptual problems, and from these, to analytical exercises to quantitative questions. Superb art program features: Anatomy Summaries show the anatomy of a physiological system from a macro to micro perspective. Reflex pathway maps and concept maps present material in a logical, consistent, and easy-to-navigate format. Coordinated feature boxes provide relevance and enhance students� understanding of ‘hot topics.’ These include Clinical Focus (featuring several discussions on Diabetes), Biotechnology, and Emerging Concepts boxes. Powerful instructor supplements include a comprehensive Instructor Resource DVD with A&P Flix� animations in 3D that cover key physiological concepts and invigorate classroom lectures, Lecture Outlines, Active Lecture Questions, Physiology Review Quiz Show Games, all book art in PowerPoint�, and more. About the Author Dee Unglaub Silverthorn studied biology as an undergraduate at Tulane University and received a Ph.D. in marine science from the University of South Carolina. Her research interest is epithelial transport, and recent work in her laboratory has focused on transport properties of the chick allantoic membrane. She began her teaching career in the Physiology Department at the Medical University of South Carolina but over the years has taught a wide range of students, from medical and college students to those still preparing for higher education. At the University of Texas-Austin she teaches physiology in both lecture and laboratory settings, and instructs graduate students on developing teaching skills in the life sciences. She has received numerous teaching awards and honors, including the 2009 Outstanding Undergraduate Science Teacher Award from the Society for College Science Teachers, the American Physiological Society’s Claude Bernard Distinguished Lecturer and Arthur C. Guyton Physiology Educator of the Year, UT System Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award, and multiple awards from UT-Austin, including the Burnt Orange Apple Award. The first edition of her textbook won the 1998 Robert W. Hamilton Author Award for best textbook published in 1997 – 98 by a University of Texas faculty member. Dee recently completed six years as editor-in-chief of Advances in Physiology Education and she works with members of the International Union of Physiological Sciences to improve physiology education in developing countries. She is the incoming president (2012-13) of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, and an active member of the American Physiological Society, the Society for Comparative and Integrative Biology, the Association for Biology Laboratory Education, and the Society for College Science Teachers. Her free time is spent creating multimedia fiber art and enjoying the Texas hill country with her husband, Andy, and their dogs.
