Cover Thrive in Human Physiology

Ian Kay and Gethin Evans

Thrive in Human Physiology provides an initial introduction to human physiology. It then looks at control and co-ordination in terms of the nervous system and the endocrine system. It moves on to musculoskeletal physiology and movement, cardiovascular physiology, respiratory physiology, renal physiology, gastrointestinal physiology, reproductive physiology, and integrative physiology.

Cover Introduction to Bioinformatics

Arthur M. Lesk

Introduction to Bioinformatics starts off by introducing the topic. It then looks at genetics and genomes. It moves on to consider the panorama of life. The text also considers alignments and phylogenetic trees. There is a chapter on structural bioinformatics and drug discovery. The text also examines scientific publications and archives, particularly media, content, access, and presentation. Artificial intelligence is considered as well, in addition to machine learning. There is an introduction to systems biology that follows towards the end. The book's final chapters look at metabolic pathways and control of organization.

Cover Biological Science

Exercise Physiology  

This chapter considers the effects of exercise on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. During exercise, blood flow is redistributed to active tissue from other systems, which may affect their function. Thus, exercise physiology involves studying the effect of exercise, with or without the addition of other stressors, on systems, organs, and tissues. Moreover, understanding the effects of exercise on physiological function can result in strategies to enhance adaptation to an exercise stimulus and lead to further improvements in function. The chapter cites the critical significance of the regulation of blood pH via the integrated response of buffering systems, the respiratory system, and the renal system to ensure normal physiological function.
