This book provides the reader with a range of questions and explanations related to essential aspects of the neural, hormonal and gastrointestinal physiology. The focus of the book is on understanding the homeostatic control in each system by using questions to challenge the reader to think through physiology. In addition, functional integration of the different organ systems is highlighted in an area such as neuroendocrinology and in the study of the neural mechanisms in the gastrointestinal tract. This is the second Physiology Question-Based Learning book, written by Prof. Dr. Cheng. He has taught physiology for thirty years. He has pioneered the international physiology quiz, which is now an annual event at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and at universities around the world. As quiz master, he has designed challenging questions to test concepts and understanding in physiology. This book reflects the style of questions asked during the physiology quiz. The questions are designed to stimulate integrative and homeostatic thinking in physiology. The Physiology Question-Based Learning books will be helpful to all students of Physiology in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and allied health sciences. This work is written to make physiology learning engaging and enjoyable and to encourage effective teaching in physiology.

This work provides the reader with various sets of questions and answers related to basic human physiology. The questions are formulated to test concepts and assess the thinking process in physiology and to discover any misperceptions in the current knowledge of physiology. Readers will find that this book has been split into three main themes; cardiovascular, respiratory and renal physiology. The homeostatic mechanisms within each system will be covered. In addition, the functional integration of the physiology of these three organ systems will also be considered. The author of this physiology question-based learning book has taught physiology for more than twenty five years. He is also the pioneer of the physiology quiz, which he facilitates as quiz master, for which he generates the challenging physiology questions. This book is a distillation of the questions asked at the international editions of the physiology quiz. This physiology question-based learning book will be useful to all students of physiology in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and other allied health sciences. This question-based learning text aims to provoke thinking and it should make learning physiology both enjoyable and challenging.

This volume synthesizes pathways in respiratory mechanics and the dynamics of air-blood and blood-cellular gas exchange for students and teachers in respiratory physiology. The authors strive to make physiology fun to learn. This aspect of knowledge acquisition is reflected in the way topics are approached, for example by using playing cards in what is coined ‘Respi-CARDology’. The first section of this book reviews the framework and foundations of basic respiratory physiology. Since this book was not written to be a comprehensive physiology text, the authors have focused on leading students to appreciate and understand integrative principles and homeostatic mechanisms in lung function. The second section of this book mainly deals with the clinical application of fundamental knowledge of respiratory physiology.

The past decade has seen an exponential increase in our knowledge and understanding of adipose tissue biology. This has coincided with the continued rise in obesity across all generations. Clearly despite substantial advances in research into adipose tissue this still has had limited impact on the on-going obesity epidemic across a majority of countries in the world. This book brings together many leading experts in the field to provide an up to date and comprehensive review of the key aspects of adipose tissue. It therefore includes chapters on evolution, development and inflammation together with a detailed review of brown and beige adipose tissue biology and their potential significance in preventing or combating obesity. These chapters are complemented by those on genetics and gender influences, together with nutrition through the life cycle. Ultimately the book provides an overview of the complexities of adipose tissue biology and the continuing challenge to combat obesity in the 21st century.
