Highly Commended at 2012 BMA awards in Basic and Clinical Sciences Category.

Medical Physiology, in its updated 2nd edition, firmly relates molecular and cellular biology to the study of human physiology and disease. Drs. Walter Boron and Emile Boulpaep and a team of leading physiologists present you with practical, accurate coverage, continually emphasizing the clinical implications of the material. Each chapter explains the principles and organization of each body system, while more than 1400 high-quality, full-color line drawings and prominently featured clinical examples clarify every concept. This exceptionally detailed and comprehensive guide to physiology is ideal for a rich, straightforward, state-of-the-art understanding of this essential subject.

<p>"This new updated is perfect for students starting out in physiology and for those wanting to extend their knowledge further. I have enjoyed using this book for my medical science studies. It is written clearly and is well organised. Cascading biological events in the body systems are explained brilliantly and extensive illustrations support the text...Overall, this is a tremendousresource to assist with learning and I recommend it particularly to those having difficulties with any aspect of physiology." <p>Nursing Standard, February 2013
