Integrated Human Physiology is a laboratory book and manual that focuses on the four basic human tissues: epithelia, connectives, nervous, and muscles. By taking a unique tissues-based approach to the study of physiology, this text departs from the traditional, systems-based approach to learning and emphasizes cell functionality, cohesiveness, and integration.
