Eric Widmaier authors this 12th edition of Vander's Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function (Human Physiology (Vander)), ISBN 9780077350017 with the reader in mind. Clearly and accurately presented facts about the human body systems are coupled with an analysis of the chain of events that comprise the operations of body functions. Various instructional methods and features are highlighted in this text to enhance the overall learning experience for users including figures, tables, key words, as well as study guides at the end of each chapter. This latest edition has also echoed the feedback from past users through the incorporation of more clinical applications, new case studies, as well as the addition of more 'Physiology Inquiries' critical-thinking questions. Widmaier, a professor of Biology at Boston University, holds a doctorate in Endocrinology and has received postdoctoral training in endocrinology and physiology at the Worchester Foundation for Experimental Biology. This well-established background in Biology is evident within the pages of Vander's Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function (Human Physiology (Vander)). Widmaier has shared his expertise in this discipline through the strategically organized 19 chapters of this book, each devoted to a different component of the human body. Chapter 1 begins this book focusing on 'Homeostasis' followed by chapter 2 which discusses 'Basic Chemistry' of the human body. 'Cell Structure and Function' are the topics of chapter 3 with a look at 'Cell Membranes' in chapter 4. Chapter 5 addresses 'Chemical Messengers' while chapter 6 delves into the 'Nervous System.' 'Sensory Physiology' comprises chapter 7 and is followed by chapter 8 devoted to 'The Brain' and chapter 9 exploring the 'Muscles.' Chapter 10 discusses 'Control of body movement' while several body systems are discussed in chapters 11-13 including the 'Endocrine System,' 'Cardiovascular System,' and 'Respiratory System.' 'Kidneys' are discussed in chapter 14 followed by 'Digestion' in chapter 15 and 'Metabolism' in chapter 16. Chapter 17 is devoted to the topic of 'Reproduction' while 'Defense Mechanisms of the Body' are analyzed in chapter 18. Finally, the book is concluded with several 'Clinical Cases' for student reading and consideration.
