    This work presents the underlying principles of cellular physiology and then covers the major organ systems - autonomic nervous system, neurophysiology, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, acid-base, gastrointestinal, endocrine and reproductive. It emphasizes clinical correlations through boxed case studies of classic disorders and explains clinical findings in terms of the underlying physiologic principles. Sample problems are provided together with numerical solutions and explanations of their application. Featured throughout the text are rhetorical questions which are posed in order to build reasoning skills and help students apply the principles they have learned.

  1. SDR Deposit of the Month: Crocodile constraints

    Lots of interesting research is deposited into the Stanford Digital Repository every month, but when the research is about crocodiles, you know we have to know more! While there are at least 26 species of crocodiles around today, many more forms of crocodiles have existed over the past 250 million years. Extinct crocodiles include those that were both much larger and much smaller than those living today.  William Gearty, a former PhD student in geological sciences at Stanford's School of Earth Energy & Environmental Sciences (Stanford Earth), started his dissertation work with marine mammals and the physiological challenges they faced when they invaded the oceans. "Crocodiles have a fairly substantial fossil record, and, probably unknown to most, many ancient crocodiles were fully marine, with flippers just like those of dolphins!" said William. Crocodiles seemed to him like the "logical next step to see how broadly these physiological challenges applied" to other animals. William was interested in understanding the evolution of body sizes for this group of animals. He and his colleagues compiled a database of body sizes for 264 fossil and modern species of crocodyliform covering terrestrial, semi-aquatic, and marine habitats. They determined that habitat imposes physiological constraints on the animals and that these constraints are much more important than constraints that are imposed by competition with other organisms or climate change. Animals that are very small lose heat too quickly when diving in the water for food, while the upper limit on size is due to the balance of metabolic rate and the rate of food intake. This research was recently published in Evolution. William shared the data and code from his research in the Stanford Digital Repository because it seemed like a fitting place. "I know that I can depend on the SDR to take care of the deposit and maintain its preservation for a long time." William is one of those researchers that is more interested in the questions he asks rather than the organisms themselves. This leads him into lots of new areas and topics, but may also require him to do more work to fully understand the new topic that he's working with. This is true even if (or especially if) he is collaborating with scientists that are already experts on the particular organisms. Another challenge is that previous analyses will sometimes include data from previously unpublished specimens that could be difficult to track down. Because William has shared his data and code in the Stanford Digital Repository, other researchers will not have this problem with his research.  "I believe that science and data should be open," William explained. "I shared this content so that other scientists can ask questions about the data or with the data that I never would have thought of."

  2. Celebrate April 1st at Green Library with Rare and Unusual Culinary Works

    Join us in Hohbach Hall Room 123 on Friday, April 1st, to celebrate the birthday of Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin (1775 - 1826), the French gastronome who wrote one of the seminal founding works on gastronomy, Physiologie du goût or The Physiology of Taste. Brillat-Savarin served as the inspiration for the International Edible Book Festival, which celebrates how we enjoy and experience both food and books. On display will be a variety of rare and unusual works representing the interaction of print culture with the culinary world. Friday, April 1, 2022  12pm - 3pm  Hohbach Hall 123 * * * * * * * * * * * * Image from Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin, Physiologie du goût, ou, méditations de gastronomie transcendante, ouvrage théorique, historique et à l'ordre du jour, dédié aux gastronomes parisiens ([Paris]: Gabriel de Gonet, [approximately 1852]).

  3. Archives acquires major addition to Steven Chu papers

    The University Archives is pleased to announce the acquisition of a major addition to the Steven Chu papers. The materials, spanning Chu's career, consist of correspondence, research and subject files, teaching files, awards, and posters. Chu, co-recipient of the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1997, earned his A.B. in mathematics (1970) and his B.S. in physics (1970) at the University of Rochester and his Ph.D. in physics at the University of California, Berkeley, 1976. He was a member of the technical staff at Bell Laboratories, 1978-1983, and then head of the Quantum Electronics Research Department, AT&T Bell Laboratories, 1983-1987. Chu joined the faculty at Stanford in 1987, was appointed Theodore and Frances Geballe Professor of Physics and Applied Physics in 1990, and served two terms as Chair of the Physics Department. He left Stanford in 2004 to become director of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. On January 21, 2009, Chu was sworn in as Secretary of Energy in the Barack Obama administration. After serving four years as secretary of energy, Steven Chu returned to Stanford in May as professor of physics and molecular and cellular physiology.
