Physiology, general

  • Breathing, Emotion and Evolutionby Gert Holstege; Caroline M. Beers; Hari H. Subramanian

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 288.00

    Respiration is one of the most basic motor activities crucial for survival of the individual. It is under total control of the central nervous system, which adjusts respiratory depth and frequency depending on the circumstances the individual finds itself. For this reason this volume not only reviews the basic control systems of respiration, located... more...

  • Liver Metabolism and Fatty Liver Diseaseby Oren Tirosh

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 129.95

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is one of the most common liver diseases worldwide affecting patients from all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds. It comprises a spectrum of hepatic pathology ranging from simple steatosis, in which there is an increase of fat accumulation in hepatocytes, to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and cirrhosis. The significant... more...

  • Eccentric Exerciseby Hans Hoppeler

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Eccentric muscle contraction, during which a muscle lengthens while under tension, is a fundamental process of human movement but a surprisingly under-researched area of exercise science. Evidence suggests that training programmes which incorporate both eccentric and concentric contractions can result in greater strength gains than concentric contractions... more...

  • The Complexity Paradoxby Kenneth Mossman

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Living systems exhibit a fundamental contradiction: they are highly stable and reliable, yet they have the capacity to adapt to changing environmental conditions. This paradoxical behavior arises from the complexity of life--a high degree of order and cooperation that emerges from relatively simple interactions among cellular components. The Complexity... more...

  • Bioimpedance and Bioelectricity Basicsby Sverre Grimnes; Orjan G. Martinsen

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 130.00

    Bioimpedance and Bioelectricity Basics, 3rd Edition paves an easier and more efficient way for people seeking basic knowledge about this discipline. This book's focus is on systems with galvanic contact with tissue, with specific detail on the geometry of the measuring system. Both authors are internationally recognized experts in the field. The... more...

  • Heart and Toxinsby Dr. Meenakshisundaram Sundaram Ramachandran

    Elsevier Science 2014; US$ 199.95

    The Heart and Toxins brings together global experts to provide the latest information and clinical trials that make the connection between genetic susceptibility, gene expression, and environmental factors in cardiovascular diseases. This unique reference, edited by renowned cardiologist Meenakshi Sundaram Ramachandran, solves the problem of managing... more...

  • Gastrointestinal Physiologyby Eugene Trowers; Marc Tischler

    Springer 2014; US$ 109.00

    This volume provides a practical hands on guide to gastrointestinal physiology. The book emphasizes an appreciation of basic physiological concepts and their application to novel clinical situations. It exposes the physician-in-training to fundamental principles that are useful in treating patients and lays the groundwork for more advanced study in... more...

  • Experimental Phoneticsby Katrina Hayward

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 86.95

    First published in 2000. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company. more...

  • Coronary Circulationby Johnathan D. Tune

    Biota Publishing 2014; US$ 75.00

    The coronary circulation is unique in that it is responsible for maintaining adequate oxygen and substrate delivery to the organ that generates the pressure needed to drive blood throughout the entire circulatory system. In the simplest terms, coronary blood flow is directly proportional to the arterial pressure gradient across the coronary vasculature... more...

  • Control of Breathing During Exerciseby Susan A. Ward

    Biota Publishing 2014; US$ 60.00

    The control of breathing during exercise remains the source of considerable debate. Classical schemes of the exercise hyperpnea have incorporated elements of proportional feed-back from chemoreceptor sites (carotid body and brainstem) and feed-forward neurogenic (central command and muscle reflex) control. However, the precise details of the control... more...
