by Marilyn J. Cipolla
Publisher: Morgan & Claypool Life Sciences 2010
Number of pages: 70
This presentation describes structural and functional properties of the cerebral circulation that are unique to the brain, an organ with high metabolic demands, and the need for tight water and ion homeostasis. Autoregulation is pronounced in the brain, with myogenic, metabolic, and neurogenic mechanisms contributing to maintain relatively constant blood flow during both increases and decreases in pressure.

Physiology is the basis of medicine. The medical student should undergo a training in practical physiology, for thereby he learns to observe, to draw conclusions from his observations, and to unravel the causes of his failures.

Human physiology is the science which treats of the life of man -- of the way in which he lives, and moves, and has his being. It teaches how man is begotten and born; how he attains maturity; and how he dies. This is a 1872 edition of the book.
