The Physiology Student's Self-test Visual Dictionary is the all-in-one Physiology reference and study aid. Beginning with an overview of human body systems and of homeostasis (the processes by which the body maintains a steady state), the main chapters are then arranged by body system. It has more than 400 full-colour anatomical illustrations complete with leader lines and labels. Every body part and physiological process labelled on the illustrations is linked to a concise definition. A workbook at the back of the book features more than 100 digitally created line illustrations of parts of the muscular and skeletal systems, so that you can memorize the location of various muscles and bones by colouring in the illustrations. The Physiology Student's Self-test Visual Dictionary is a must-have reference for anyone studying the human body.
