Physiology

  • ECGs for Beginnersby Bayé; Antoni s de Luna

    Wiley 2014; US$ 98.95

    Mastery of ECG interpretation is achieved not only by pattern recognition, but equally importantly, by a clear, practical understanding of how electricity moves through the heart and how disruption of that movement manifests itself via ECG tracings.  ECGs for Beginners, written by one of the world's most respected electrophysiologists... more...

  • Speech and Brain Mechanismsby Wilder Penfield; Lamar Roberts

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 48.00

    The outcome of ten years' work, this book is a carefully planned study of brain dominance, aphasia, and other speech disturbances, and includes a discussion of the cerebral mechanisms of speech and the learning and teaching of language.

  • 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...

  • Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosisby A. Wayne Orr; Jr. Arif Yurdagul; Brijesh M. Patel

    Biota Publishing 2014; US$ 65.00

    The circulatory system provides the tissues of the body with oxygen and nutrients for survival, allows for the dissemination of inflammatory cells, and clears metabolic waste from building up and damaging tissue. Atherosclerotic disease, the build-up of fat, inflammatory cells, and fibrotic tissue in the vessel wall, hinders this function, resulting... 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...

  • Hormonesby Martin Luck

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 7.99

    Hormones play an integral part in the balance and workings of the body. While many people are broadly aware of their existence, there are many misconceptions and few are aware of the nature and importance of the endocrine system. In this Very Short Introduction, Martin Luck explains what hormones are, what they do, where they come from, and how they... more...

  • Molecular Mechanisms of Angiogenesisby Jean-Jacques Feige; Gilles Pagès; Fabrice Soncin

    Springer 2014; US$ 209.00

    Angiogenesis is a multi-stage process that drives the generation of new blood and lymphatic vessels from pre-existing ones. It is highly active during embryogenesis, largely inactive during adulthood but reactivated during wound healing and under a number of pathological conditions including cancer and ocular diseases. In addition to endothelial cells,... more...
