Our Marvelous Bodies offers a unique perspective on the structure, function, and care of the major systems of the human body. Unlike other texts that use a strictly scientific approach, physiologist Gary F. Merrill relays medical facts alongside personal stories that help students relate to and apply the information.

Readers learn the basics of feedback control systems, homeostasis, and physiological gradients. These principles apply to an understanding of the body’s functioning under optimal, healthy conditions, and they provide insight into states of acute and chronic illness. Separate chapters are devoted to each of the body’s systems in detail: nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal, musculoskeletal, reproductive, and immune. Through a series of real-life examples, the book also shows the importance of maintaining careful medical records for health care professionals, scientists, and patients alike.

About the Author:

GARY F. MERRILL is a professor of cell biology and neuroscience in the Division of Life Sciences at Rutgers University.

Review:

"Merrill has written a concise yet thorough primier on the physiology of the major human body systems. Highly recommended." (CHOICE)

"Using marvelous examples of everyday experience, Merrill effectively illustrates and explains many complex physiological processes. This blending of basic human biology with real-life stories greatly helps us to understand our own bodies—as patients, students, or as health care professionals." (Richard A. Nyhof professor of Biology, Calvin College)

"Merrill's approach to science instruction is a unique one. I found it captivating." (Byron Cryer University of Texas Southwestern Medical School)
