For laboratory courses in Human/Animal Physiology

Noted for its clear language, logical information flow, and emphasis on developing critical skills, this versatile manual covers all of the material needed for a one-semester human or animal physiology laboratory course. Over 90 exercises are organised into 22 chapters that are suitable for a two- to four-hour lab period.

The 11th Edition incorporates inquiry-based components, including an “Explain This” feature, which asks students to thoughtfully consider the aim of each exercise that they perform, and also contains a new scientific inquiry and graphing Appendix — making this a perfect complement to any book.

Features & benefits
  • NEW! Inquiry-based components encourage lab students to think scientifically. The 11th Edition now includes “Explain This” questions that focus on interpretation and analysis throughout a procedure.
  • NEW! A Scientific Method Appendix provides information on interpreting graphs and using computers to graph.
  • UPDATED! The 11th Edition is now integrated with PhysioEx 9.1. PhysioEx 9.1 lab simulations are free-form experiments that allow students to interact on a deeper level of the scientific process.
  • UPDATED! The text includes instructions on utilising PowerLab, Vernier and BIOPAC data acquisition systems to further enhance learning.
  • UPDATED! More Clinical Application feature boxes show students the relevance of what they’re learning and how it relates to clinical situations, diseases, and medical devices. 
  • UPDATED! Frequent “Stop and Think” features prompt students to consider key questions before moving on to the next step in an exercise. “Stop and Think” encourages critical thinking and observation skills, which are essential for successfully completing the lab report.
There are 90 wide-ranging exercises, organised into 22 exercise chapters that are suitable for two- to four-hour laboratory periods and flexible enough to use in one-semester introductory courses or upper-level one- or two-semester courses. Features of the lab manual include:
  • NEW! PhysioEx 9.1 offers 12 online lab simulations with 63 activities that instructors can use to replace expensive, dangerous, time-consuming wet labs or any exercises requiring certain equipment or specimens.
  • Laboratory Reports engage students in using data tables, graphs, and critical thinking questions to help organise and understand their lab results.
  • The inclusion of additional background information helps students understand material in chapters covering renal physiology, reflex functions, exercise physiology, and cardiovascular function. 
  • Coverage of diabetes reflects current techniques for measuring blood glucose and identifying the different types of diabetes.
  • Critical thinking questions on every lab report challenge students to apply what they’ve learned.
  • Student lab objectives at the beginning of each chapter identify learning goals and give instructors a basis for assessment. 
  • A materials list at the start of each activity simplifies lab set-up and selection. 
  • Spiral binding and Laboratory Safety Guidelines, located inside the front cover, make the manual a user-friendly tool that emphasises lab safety. 
  • A Numbered Lab Activities List makes it easy for students to identify the action steps in an experiment.
