The Entire Spectrum of Human Physiology Captured in One Book

New York, NY, February 22, 2009 --( Color Atlas of Physiology, published by Thieme, holds the entire spectrum of human physiology and contains the basic principles and facts taught in medical school. This invaluable reference is ideal for the practicing physician as well as scientists and students.

The structure of the book, coupled with the highly visual element, enables students to quickly grasp key concepts. Material on consciousness and sleep, body-weight regulation, memory, and blood coagulation have been added to this fully updated atlas.

"The base knowledge in many areas of physiology has considerably grown in magnitude and depth since the last edition of this book. Many advances, especially the sequencing of the human genome and its gene products have brought completely new insight into cell function and communication," says author Dr. Stefan Silbernagl, professor and head of the department of physiology at the University of Wurzburg in Wurzburg, Germany.
