A comprehensive, stand-alone laboratory manual for the one-semester physiology course taught at the undergraduate level. It can accompany any physiology textbook on the market. It reinforces those principles that are fundamental to all courses on physiology. The strengths of this lab manual are its emphasis of hands-on experiments, a practical balance of background information, and clear procedural instructions.
