Human Physiology, 1st Edition is an integrated solution to the challenges you encounter when enrolled in a Human Physiology course. Incorporating digital and print content, this program supports your understanding of core physiological concepts while building the critical thinking skills that will prepare you for success in your future career.


  • Critical Thinking Exercises help students apply their knowledge of physiology by asking them to address realistic situations. These exercises then guide them through the logical progression of thought processes needed to come to a solution.
  • Research to Reality encourages students to make connections to real-world applications.
  • 3-D Physiology is a state-of-the-art animation series on the most difficult physiological concepts for you to teach and your students to learn.
  • PowerPhys 3.0 is physiological simulation software authored by teaching lab faculty. The activities focus on core physiological concepts and reinforce techniques experienced in the lab.
