A perfect introduction to introductory human anatomy and physiology, Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory Manual offers a unique approach that incorporates crime scenes, superheroes and more. While traditional lab manuals simply offer core concepts on A&P topics, this one-of-a-kind resource presents material from easily understood comparisons to help you learn about A&P from a real-world point of view. Plus, hands-on activities experiments help link what you're learning today with how it may be used in your professional life.
Labeling exercises help you memorize the small details of complicated body parts and processes.
Practical experiments that center on your own physiological processes and knowledge of the world in general help you make connections between the text, lab, and the world around you.
Numerous full-color illustrations and photomicrographs help you visualize difficult concepts and reinforce development of spatial perspective.
