This volume reviews the current research focused on the functional importance of unfolded protein response (UPR) signaling in the context of health and disease. The chapters present cutting-edge work describing the diverse functions of UPR signaling critical for regulating cellular and organismal physiology under physiologic and pathologic conditions. Written by internationally respected scientists, this volume is designed to provide a broad view of the diverse functional importance of UPR, and as such appeals to clinicians and academic researchers alike.

In Psychological assessment: Thinking innovately in contexts of diversity, authors propose creative ways of assessing and working with a range of clients, who may differ from the practitioner in background, culture, age and gender. The authors draw on years of experience and research in the fields of industrial, counselling, clinical, research and educational psychology. The book complements traditional psychometric approaches to psychological interventions, thereby increasing the repertoire available to psychologists. In addition to presenting psychometric testing and alternative ways of using psychometric instruments, it debates the use of these approaches against the background of indigenous knowledge systems theory as it applies to the South African context. This book introduces practitioners to current thinking and possible practical approaches, thus successfully blending theory and practice in one volume. It is aimed at students of psychology, both undergraduate and postgraduate. In addition, practitioners in the fields of psychology, social work, counselling and related fields will benefit from the debates presented in this publication.

A firm grasp of the functions of living organisms is one of the most important prerequisites to pharmacy study. The long-awaited second edition of Essentials of Human Physiology presents concepts in physiology in a way that prepares students for their subsequent study of pathophysiology, pharmacology, and pharmacotherapeutics.
Thoroughly revised and updated, this text maintains the clarity of the first edition, yet provides important new information to give students a solid grounding in some of the most important aspects of pharmacy. As with the first edition, the book begins with an overview of the fundamental aspects of cell membrane physiology with particular emphasis on nerve cell function. This is followed by a detailed discussion of the two major regulatory systems in the body: the nervous system and the endocrine system.
The book then continues with in-depth presentations of the reproductive, muscular, cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, digestive, and renal systems. An important focus throughout the text is how tissue and organ function are regulated in order to maintain homeostasis.
New in This Edition:
· All 19 chapters updated and expanded
· Revised and additional subsections of pharmacy applications
· New sections on medical terms with pronunciations and definitions
· New chapters on the reproductive and immune systems
· Additional figures and tables to clarify information
This book was written by Laurie Kelly McCorry, a professor of physiology for eighteen years. Using simple, straightforward language, the text presents the science of physiology clearly so that undergraduate students will understand the relevance of these concepts as they relate to the practice of pharmacy. By studying and mastering the principles in this text, students will develop a secure foundation in human physiology so that they are better equipped to meet the challenges in their pharmacy career.
Berne & Levy Physiology has long been respected for its scientifically rigorous approach – one that leads to an in-depth understanding of the body’s dynamic processes. The long-awaited 7th Edition by Drs. Bruce M. Koeppen and Bruce A. Stanton, continues this tradition of excellence. With integrated coverage of biophysics and neurophysiology, key experimental observations and examples, and full-color design and artwork, this mid-size text is “just right” for a strong understanding of this complex field.
This book provides a comprehensive introduction to physiologic anchorage control, explains the implications for clinical practice, and presents an anchorage technique applicable for the treatment of different malocclusions. The concept of physiologic anchorage control is derived from observations of upper molar movement during growth in adolescence, including in the absence of orthodontic treatment, which indicate that molar forward displacement comprises two components: the first due to biologic force or physiologic anchorage loss and the second due to orthodontic force or mechanical anchorage loss. All previous anchorage methods have been based on the assumption that molar anchorage loss is to be attributed solely to the mechanical force used to retract anterior teeth, and the new concept represents a paradigm shift of clinical significance. This book explores the pattern of upper molar growth in depth, highlights the physiologic significance of the curve of Spee, and analyzes the biomechanics of physiologic anchorage control. An anchorage control system that fully takes into account the latest conceptual insights is described and its clinical use and utility, examined.

My name is Dr. James Ross and I’ve been teaching human anatomy and physiology for more than 18 years. I hold a Ph.D. in Integrative Physiology, which I completed in 1992, and started writing for popular magazines and journals.
I was recently a nominee in the poster prize at the British Neuroendocrine Society annual conference held on 15th and 16th September 2008 at the University of Briston. In 2004, I founded the “InnerHealth” training school for paramedics and nurses in Pennsylvania.
But more importantly, since 1996, I’ve helped thousands of students, practitioners and junior doctors learn and master the complex topics of anatomy quickly and easily.
