Understanding Medical Physiology: A Textbook for Medical Students

by R.L. Bijlani

The Understanding Medical Physiology depicts immunology as an integral part of the neuroendocrine network. The growth of psychoneuroimmunology has expanded the scope and implications of homeostatic mechanisms, provided the scientific basis of mind-body relationship, and bridged the gap between modern science and ancient disciplines such as yoga. These advances are both fascinating and intimidating, but only a glimpse can be had in this book. Several other new discoveries have also led to additions scattered throughout the book. Major topics of discussion include molecular and cell biology, blood, cardiovascular system, respiration, environmental physiology, digestion, nutrition, renal physiology, nerve, muscle and work physiology, reproduction, endocrines, nervous system, visceral functions and motivation, special senses, and yoga in daily life. Developmental aspects and physiological variations due to age and sex are highlighted in the present book.
