The art and illustration program make explanations and concepts easier to comprehend. * "Clinical Application" sections demonstrate the clinical or professional significance of the discussion. * Coverage of scientific research and breakthroughs in understanding the human body keep the book on the cutting edge.
The thirteenth edition of the phenomenally successful Principles of Anatomy and Physiology continues to set the standard for the discipline. The authors maintained a superb balance between structure and function and continue to emphasize the correlations between normal physiology and pathophysiology, normal anatomy and pathology, and homeostasis and homeostatic imbalances. The acclaimed illustration program continues to be refined and is unsurpassed in the market. The thirteenth edition is fully integrated with a host of innovative electronic media, including a newly enhanced WileyPLUS course. No other text and package offers a teaching and learning environment as rich and complete.
This text for preservice and in-service teacher education courses shows how schools can educate girls and promote their positive self-esteem at the same time. Its purpose is to help teachers facilitate the development of gender-equitable schools and classrooms. Taking a feminist developmental approach, the text draws on an interdisciplinary knowledge base, synthesizing research from psychology, anthropology, sociology, and education. While it is rooted in scholarly research, the focus is on clarifying the connection between theory and practice, with an emphasis on practical applications. The text is organized in two sections--"Growth and Development" and "Teaching and Learning"--and includes a variety of engaging pedagogical features. Underscoring the need for teachers, school administrators, and parents to become aware of the intersection of development and education, Educating Young Adolescent Girls: *combines gender, growth, and development; *demonstrates how schooling can facilitate the total development of young adolescent girls; and *addresses a multiplicity of issues, including adolescent girls of color and young adolescents girls' sexuality.
The monograph offers a comprehensive discussion of the role of evaporites in hydrocarbon generation and trapping, and new information on low temperature and high temperature ores. It also provides a wealth of information on exploitable salts, in a comprehensive volume has been assembled and organized to provide quick access to relevant information on all matters related to evaporites and associated brines. In addition, there are summaries of evaporite karst hazards, exploitative methods and problems that can arise in dealing with evaporites in conventional and solution mining. This second edition has been revised and extended, with three new chapters focusing on ore minerals in different temperature settings and a chapter on meta-evaporites. Written by a field specialist in research and exploration, the book presents a comprehensive overview of the realms of low- and high-temperature evaporite evolution. It is aimed at earth science professionals, sedimentologists, oil and gas explorers, mining geologists as well as environmental geologists.
With this outstanding learning tool, you'll review key material and the expert coverage you'll find in this study guide will help you meet the challenges of important exams and clinical practice with confidence.
The well respected textbook Pathophysiology: Concepts of Altered Health States has now been fully adapted for Canadian undergraduate nursing and health professions students. Like the original text, this Canadian edition includes a review of anatomy and physiology and treatment information for commonly occurring disease states. Pediatric, geriatric, and pregnancy deviations are integrated throughout and highlighted with icons for easy identification. Canadian content includes Canadian healthcare statistics regarding incidence; cultural variations, with a focus on native population and largest immigrant populations; Canadian research and researchers; Canadian treatment protocols and guidelines; and commonly occurring disease concerns based on Canadian statistics.
This book was written with the intent of making the subject of pathophysiology an exciting exploration that relates normal body functioning to the physiologic changes that participate in disease production and occur as a result of disease, as well as the body’s remarkable ability to compensate for these changes. Indeed, it is these changes that represent the signs and symptoms of disease. Using a book such as this can be simplified by taking the time to find what is in the book and how to locate information when it is needed. The table of contents at the beginning of the book provides an overall view of the organization and content of the book. It also provides clues as to the relationship...
This is the Eighth Edition of the comprehensive and well-respected text and reference of pathophysiology. As a nurse-physiologist, Carol Porth uniquely emphasizes "concepts" of altered health states, as opposed to factual descriptions of diseases and disorders. This conceptual model integrates the developmental and preventative aspects of health. By taking this physiologic approach, the author ensures a comprehension of the whole of body function. By integrating all of the aspects of the human body into a total functional whole, the student can grasp both the physical and psychological aspects of altered health. This edition has a completely revamped art program and new displays that showcas...
For twenty-five years Michael Arbib has been studying the workings of the human brain and developing new approaches to the design of intelligent machines. These concerns have often led him to ponder philosophical questions about the nature of mind and knowledge. In this book, Arbib offers a stimulating, speculative discussion of cognitive science and its relation to larger philosophical and social issues. Arbib proposes a theory of mental schemas to explain how the individual brain represents the world around it. He builds on Piaget's studies of how children learn and on his own work in brain theory and artificial intelligence to show how the concept of schemas an be used to link cognitive science to the study of persons in society. He then employs this "schema theory" as a way of looking at various constructions of reality, including those of Chomsky, Freud, Marx, and Habermas. In the final chapter, he addresses the question of human freedom and suggests a means of avoiding the apparent limitations of mechanistic explanations for human mental processes.
