Neuro- und sinnesphysiologische Vorgänge sind die foundation unseres Bewusstseins und Verhaltens. Das moderne, faszinierende Fachgebiet der Medizin ist von grundlegender Bedeutung für das Verständnis neurologischer, psychologischer und psychiatrischer Fragestellungen. 15 fachlich renommierte Autoren der Physiologie haben ein Lehrbuch geschaffen, das durch die Knappheit und Präzision der Darstellung ebenso besticht, wie durch sein didaktisches Konzept und die Fülle klarer, 4-farbiger Abbildungen. Neu in der five. Auflage sind gemäß der neuen Approbationsordnung die klinisch-pathophysiologischen Elemente. In erster Linie wendet sich dieses Taschenbuch an Medizinstudenten. Aber auch Studenten der Biologie, Psychologie, Zahnmedizin und Pharmazie erleichtert der Schmidt/Schaible den Einstieg in die Neuro- und Sinnesphysiologie, denn die Autoren setzen keine anatomischen oder physiologischen Kenntnisse voraus.
