Known for its clear language, logical organization, and range of exercises, this versatile manual covers all the material needed for a one-semester laboratory course and can be used with any text. Over 90 exercises are organized into 22 chapters that are suitable for a two- or three-hour lab period. This revision retains Tharp/Woodman’s simple, clear artwork, challenging lab report questions, and strong technology integration—including PowerLab, Vernier, and PhysioEx. Now spiral-bound for ease of use, the Tenth Edition increases focus on clinical applications and critical thinking questions.
This laboratory manual, which contains some experiments performed on rats and frogs, is written in a generic format, and can be used with a variety of texts and equipment. Experiments are grouped into 23 teaching units; each unit consists of a group of related experiments suitable for a three-hour laboratory period. Tear out lab reports are provided after each exercise, and consist of data tables, graphs, and questions. Intended for a one semester introductory physiology course. A companion computer program, mentioned in the appendix but not included, is available to supplement or replace some wet lab experiments. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
