Students learn best when they can relate what they are studying to familiar issues, problems, and experiences, and Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology, 4th Edition does just that. With a clear and concise focus on anatomy and physiology, this new edition explains the normal structure of the human body and how it functions to maintain a state of balance and health ― and covers need-to-know principles in an easy-to-understand manner. It focuses on how tissues, organs, and body systems work together to carry out activities such as maintaining body temperature, regulating blood pressure, learning, and responding to stress. Completely updated with a brand new art program, this engaging, user-friendly text clarifies concepts that are often difficult for various career-level health professions students to grasp through reading only.
Written at a graduate level, the Second Edition of ACSM's Advanced Exercise Physiology enables experienced students to develop an in-depth understanding of exercise physiology along with its related topics and applications. Both the immediate and long-term effects of exercise on individual body systems are described in detail, and the text emphasizes how each body system's physiological response to exercise is interdependent. Moreover, it examines how these physiological responses are affected by heat, cold, hypoxia, microgravity, rest, and hyperbaria.
Reading comes easily to some students, but many struggle with some part of this complex process that requires many areas of the brain to operate together through an intricate network of neurons. As a classroom teacher who has also worked as a neurologist, Judy Willis offers a unique perspective on how to help students not only learn the mechanics of reading and comprehension, but also develop a love of reading. She shows the importance of establishing a nonthreatening environment and provides teaching strategies that truly engage students and help them build phonemic awareness; manipulate patterns to improve reading skills; improve reading fluency; combat the stress and anxiety that can inhibit reading fluency; increase vocabulary; overcome reading difficulties that can interfere with comprehension. By enriching your understanding of how the brain processes language, emotion, and other stimuli, this book will change the way you understand and teach reading skills and help all your students become successful readers.
This book provides a broadly based intoduction to those aspects of biochemistry relevant to exercise science. For students of biochemistry, physiology and sport science, this book will help to develop a solid undersanding of the fundamentals of biochemistry. Throughout, the focus is on physiological chemistry, dealing with those biochemical processes that determine the metabolic response to exercise, and the way in which these responses are influenced by training. The authors have taken account of the rapid advances being made in the field of physiological chemistry, and by providing a broad understanding of the fundamental concepts, the reader should be able to integrate these future developments with their existing knowledge of the area.
Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes makes high-performance nutrition simple for running, cycling, triathlon, and swimming. Weighing in at 432 pages, this newly updated third edition is the most comprehensive resource on nutrition from the most experienced and highly qualified nutritionist in endurance sports. Ryan offers clear answers to the most fundamental questions in endurance sports nutrition - what should I eat, how much, and when - based on the latest research and experience from her 30-year career advising elite and age-group athletes and pro sports teams. She offers fine-tuning strategies for training and racing, optimal recovery, weight loss, and boosting strength-to-weight ratio. Citing rigorous and reputable studies, Ryan busts myths about ergogenic aids and supplements and offers a dose of reality to practices like fat loading and glycogen-depleted workouts. This complete guide addresses a wide variety of special nutrition considerations for younger and older athletes, diabetics, vegetarians, pregnant women, and those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance. Sports Nutrition for Endurance Athletes also offers six appendixes of reference material including glycemic index, a vitamin and mineral glossary, an up-to-date comparison of sports nutrition products, and sample menus.
"Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training" expands the knowledge base in the field and paints a full and detailed picture of why and how biochemical monitoring is done. Those seeking scientific information to select and apply the best biochemical methods to monitor sport training need look no further-itĺs all here. There are other books available on the subject, but "Biochemical Monitoring of Sport Training" is the only one that provides a combined package of theory and application. It provides in-depth explanations of what happens biochemically while athletes perform and it offers practical suggestions for how to actually biochemically monitor athletes yourself. Part I includes a discussion of why biochemical monitoring of training is necessary and the opportunities it presents for both coaches and athletes. Part II examines methodological limitations of studies in this area. Part III presents how to apply biochemical methods to monitor training in the real world.
Science and Football VIII showcases the very latest scientific research into the variety of sports known as ‘football’. These include soccer, the national codes (American football, Australian rules football and Gaelic football), and the rugby codes (union and league). Bridging the gap between theory and practice, this book is by far the most comprehensive collection of current research into football, presenting important new work in key areas such as: physiology of training, performance analysis, fitness assessment, nutrition, biomechanics, injury and rehabilitation, youth football, environmental physiology, psychology in football, sociological perspectives in football. Science and Football VIII is an essential resource for all sport scientists, trainers, coaches, physical therapists, physicians, psychologists, educational officers and professionals working across the football codes.
Science and Football VII is an essential resource for all sport scientists, trainers, coaches, physical therapists, physicians, psychologists, educational officers and professionals working across the football codes. The papers contained within this volume were first presented at the Seventh World Congress on Science and Football, held in May 2011 in Nagoya, Japan. The meeting was held under the auspices of the International Steering Group on Science and Football, a representative member of the World Commission of Science and Sports.
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. An organ system-based approach clearly describes all of the mechanisms that control and regulate bodily function. Key experimental observations and examples provide a rich understanding of the body's dynamic processes. New coverage includes expanded discussions of gut and lung microbiota,; the limbic system; the hypthalamus and control of food intake; cardiac and vascular function curves during exercise; new aspects of lipid absorption; GI and metabolic consequences of bariatric surgery, the role of innate lymphoid cells in defense of the respiratory system, molecular mechanisms in normal and pathological muscle contraction; arterial pulse changes with age and the ankle-brachial index; regulation of the blood-brain barrier and cerebral blood flow; the regulation of phosphate; and thyroid hormone mechanism of action. Each chapter begins with an all-new bulleted list of questions and ends with key concepts covered in that chapter.
