Marieb, Hoehn, Human Anatomy & Physiology, 8th Edition
Features and Benefits
New to this Edition
A simply stunning art program uses more dynamic, three-dimensional, and realistic styles with dramatic views and perspectives and saturated and vibrant colors. The art includes key anatomy figures that are rendered superior to the competition, with detail, depth, and a clear focus on key anatomical structures. These figures are not only visually dynamic but they also do a superior job of teaching key concepts to today’s student.
Focus figures help students grasp key A&P concepts that they often have trouble visualizing and understanding, such as events at the neuromuscular junction, excitation-contraction coupling, the cross-bridge cycle, and action potential. These ten key figures convey these tough topics by walking students step-by-step through the processes with easy-to-follow illustrations and explanations.
Addition of author narration with blue text has been integrated into select figures to help guide students through complex, multi-step processes.
All new bone art features realistic color and attributes and creates a consistent style from figure to figure.
New photos include cadaver, photomicrograph, medical imaging, and clinical photos.
An easy-to-navigate text features newly tightened writing together with a clean presentation that is easier to study from and navigate.
Student Objectives have been integrated from the chapter opener page to within the chapter. These give students a preview of what content is to come and what they are expected to learn.
Check Your Understanding concept check questions ask students to stop, think, and check their understanding of key concepts at the end of each major section.
A new design and larger trim size make the book easier to navigate through and study from, and a new font style makes the book easier to read.
Powerful, user-friendly media includes
The clear and inviting writing style uses everyday analogies to explain difficult concepts and hold students’ attention.
The enhanced art program accelerates the learning process with large, clear anatomical figures, handy illustrated tables, consistent, color-coded flow charts, and realistic illustrations of microscopic structures.
Comprehensive clinical applications appear in Homeostatic Imbalance sections, Closer Look enrichment essays, Clinical Connections, and Critical Thinking and Clinical Application Questions to help students apply their knowledge to clinical situations.
Making Connections and Closer Connections summarize the relationships between body systems and their clinical implications.
Thorough beginning- and end-of-chapter pedagogy reinforces key concepts to help students truly understand the material instead of simply memorizing it.
Muscle art features more realistic, natural-looking colors and textures that are consistent in style from figure to figure.
