A multi-authored and comprehensive text, Cell Physiology Source Book enables graduate students in various biological sub-disciplines to gain a thorough understanding of cell physiology. It begins with a reviewof the physical chemistry of solutions, protein structure, and membrane structure, and ends with an Appendix featuring reviews of electricity, electrochemistry, and cable properties of cells. In between, this book is loaded with information on membrane potentials, cell metabolism, signal transduction, transport physiology and pumps, membrane excitability and ion channels, synaptic transmission, sensory transduction, muscle contraction, excitation-contraction coupling, bioluminescence, photosynthesis, andplant cell physiology.
This exhaustive work provides graduate students with detailed and authoritative coverage of nearly all aspects of cell physiology. Such broad coverage of this field within a single source makes for a unique text.
Chapters written in a clear, concise, and didactic style, and appropriate reviews of basic physics and chemistry are among the many distinguishing features of this monumental treatise.

Professor Sperelakis currently serves as the Joseph Eichberg Professor of Physiology and Biophysics at the College of Medicine at the University of Cincinnati. A cell physiologist specializing in cellular electrophysiology, he received a B.S. in Chemistry in 1951 and a Ph.D. in Physiology in 1957, both at the University of Illinois, Urbana. Dr. Sperelakis is the author/co-author of nearly 500 scientific articles in journals and books. He has lectured at numerous universities worldwide and at international conferences/symposia. He has also trained many postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, and has been a visiting professor at several foreign universities. Professor Sperelakis has served on a number of journal editorial boards. He is a member of numerous professional societies and has served on the Council for several of them. He has served on the science program advisory committees for various international conferences and has organized several conferences. Dr. Sperelakis was an Established Investigator of the American Heart Association, Fellow at the Marine Biological Laboratory (Woods Hole), and elected Fellow of the American College of Cardiology. His listings include Who's Who in the World, in America, in Science and Engineering, and in American Education.Review:
Cell Physiology Source Book will be useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying cell physiology, cell biophysics, electrophysiology, and biological scientists in many fields. The book is particularly suitable for introducing cell physiology to students with training in the physical sciences and for introducing cell biophysics to students with backgrounds in biology.
I believe that this book seeks to address an area of need in modern biological research. It is successful in achieving those goals. The book will be useful as a general text in this field particularly for junior graduate students taking general coursesin cellular biology.
As presented, this book on physiology is quite different from most other ones and may even seem in some way iconoclastic. Why not? It changed us from the traditional, sempiternal modes of presentation.
