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 updated coverage and new features throughout. 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 complete understanding of this complex field.
