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 Fifth Edition has been significantly updated throughout and features substantially revised art and Running Problems in the book and on the reader Companion Website. Recognized as an extraordinary educator and active learning enthusiast, Dr. Silverthorn incorporates time-tested classroom techniques throughout the book and presents thorough, up-to-date coverage of new scientific discoveries, biotechnology techniques, and treatments of disorders.
Dr. Silverthorn also co-authored the accompanying Student Workbook and Instructor Manual, ensuring that these ancillaries reinforce the pedagogical approach of the book.The Fifth Edition includes access to Interactive Physiology® 10-System Suite (IP-10), PhysioEx™ 8.0, A&P Flix animations in 3D, and The Physiology Place Companion Website.

Market: Intended for those interested in learning the basics of human physiology
Focuses on problem solving, the integrative nature of physiology, cellular and molecular elements, and physiology as a dynamic field. Anatomy summary figures show the anatomy of each physiological system from a macro- to micro-perspective in large spread. Other nice features include reflex pathway and concept maps; chapter scenarios that appear in segments; integration chapters which illustrate how the body's systems coordinate their function; and special focus features on the skin, liver, thymus, pineal gland, bone marrow, and spleen.
