Inhaltsangabe: This book, intended primarily as a comprehensive textbook of human physiology for medical students has been thoroughly revised. So that recent findings could be included in a volume of manageable size, the subject matter has been reorganized and partially condensed. General aspects of cell physiology and intercellular communication are now presented in one introductory section, making room for separate chapters on nociception and pain, sexual functions, reproduction and pregnancy, and aging. There are new chapters by authors who have not contributed to previous editions (the chapters on general sensory physiology, endocrinology, gastrointestinal functions, the kidneys, and water and electrolyte balance), and some of the earlier contributors have taken on new responsibilities corresponding to their present scientific interests. The emphasis on pathophysiological aspects has been retained, so that the student is provided with a link to clinical medicine. Many of the illustrations have been replaced or redrawn, to ensure a clear presentation of even the most complex relationships. As a compilation of current knowledge by 23 eminent authorities, with an extensive index, the book will also be a useful reference for clinical physicians and for scientists in fields such as pharmacology, biochemistry, zoology, physiology, and biology.
Inhaltsangabe: This book first appeared in English in 1983, as a translation of the 20th Edition of the long-established German textbook Physi%gie des Menschen. In this new English edition the text has been fundamentally "rejuvenated", to bring it up to date with the rapid advances in many areas of physiology and to incorporate many helpful suggestions from both readers and colleagues. In its scope and didac tic goals, the book remains as we set forth in the Preface to the First Edition, which follows. First, the content was substantially reorganized. The general aspects of cell physiol ogy and intercellular communication, which underlie the functions of all organs, were extracted from the various chapters and brought together in a separate intro ductory section. We are most grateful to our colleague J. DUDEL for undertaking this task. The second step was to make the text more concise in several places (for instance, the motor and somatovisceral systems previously occupied two chapters and have now been condensed into one). By these processes of condensation and distillation of the passages on general cell physiology, space was made for the necessary addi tions and expansions, with only a slight change in the overall length of the book.
