Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology

Examination Questions and Answers in Basic Anatomy and Physiology

Springer. 2018

This second edition provides 2400 multiple choice questions on human anatomy and physiology, and some physical science, separated into 40 categories. The answer to each question is accompanied by an explanation. Each category has an introduction to set the scene for the questions to come. However, not all possible information is provided within these Introductions, so an Anatomy and Physiology textbook is an indispensable aid to understanding the answers. The questions have been used in...

Introductory Human Physiology

Introductory Human Physiology

Lulu Press, Inc. 2015

Physiology is an integrative science which considers the function of each organ and organ system and their interaction in the maintenance of life. This book is designed to provide the foundation for understanding the normal function of the human body. Each chapter emphasizes the basic concepts that apply to each organ and organ system as well as their integration to maintain homeostasis and proper responses to perturbations such as exercise, illness, and trauma. The organ systems covered...

Homeostasis

Homeostasis

BoD – Books on Demand. 2019

The human body is composed of several systems and organs, consisting of millions of cells that need relatively stable conditions to function and contribute to the survival of the body as a whole. The maintenance of stable conditions for the cells against the variations of the external environment is an essential function of the body and is called homeostasis. As a consequence of the loss of homeostasis, a disease is manifested. This book aims to provide the reader with an up-to-date view of...

Metabolic Control of Brain Homeostasis

Metabolic Control of Brain Homeostasis

Frontiers Media SA. 2017

Brain function is under metabolic control, which in turn determines the equilibrium of homeostatic systems that affect neuronal and glial networks on the molecular, cellular, and systems levels. The collection of articles ranges from molecules and mechanisms involved in regulating homeostasis and neuronal excitability to therapeutic mechanisms tailored to restore homeostatic function. It also features neurological diseases and novel treatment approaches that are based on metabolic and...

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Metal Biology Takes Flight: The Study of Metal Homeostasis and Detoxification in Insects

Frontiers Media SA. 2018

Metals such as copper, iron, manganese, and zinc are clearly required for proper metabolism and development, while imbalances can lead to systemic dysfunction and disease. As a result, organisms have evolved complex genetic systems for the regulation of metal levels, including import, export, and sequestration of metals within cells and sub-cellular compartments. The study of metal biology in insects has the potential to greatly expand our understanding of metal biology. The results of such...
