In Physiology, discover how the individual areas of the human body work. The book is organized according to the different structures and systems found in the human body – essential organs, blood stream, cellular structure, the senses, reproduction and body cycles. As you read Physiology you will find out incredible facts, such as:

* The average person produces about 0.75–1 millilitres of tears every day.
* A marathon runner achieves 40 percent greater cardiac output than an
untrained person.
* Sneezes travel at 160km/h (100 mph)

Clear, jargon-free text describes each function, from head to toe, inside and out. Full-colour diagrams of the various bones, muscles, internal organs, blood vessels and nerves are clearly annotated, allowing the reader to quickly understand a specific area or body function. Complex anatomical illustrations help the reader grasp the intricate workings of human physiology at a glance.

So whether you want to know how nails grow, how the heart pumps blood around the body or how we dream, Physiology will explain everything in full colour detail.
