Physioex 9.0 Laboratory Simulations in Phyysiologyby Peter Zao
Synopses & Reviews
PhysioEx™ 9.0: Laboratory Simulations in Physiology is an easy-to-use laboratory simulation software and lab manual that consists of 12 exercises containing 66 physiology lab activities that can be used to supplement or substitute wet labs. PhysioEx allows you to repeat labs as often as you like, perform experiments without harming live animals, and conduct experiments that are difficult to perform in a wet lab environment because of time, cost, or safety concerns.
The PhysioEx 9.0 software features a brand new online format with step-by-step instructions and assessment so that everything you need to do and complete your lab is located in one convenient place. New Pre-lab and Post-lab Quizzes for each activity and Stop & Think and Predict Questions within the steps of each experiment help students make the connection between the activities and the physiological concepts they demonstrate. Your answers to all of these questions and the results from the experiments can be saved in a PDF Lab Report. The PhysioEx 9.0 CD-ROM comes packaged with every new copy of the PhysioEx 9.0 lab manual. Each new copy of the PhysioEx 9.0 lab manual also includes access to the online version of PhysioEx 9.0.
Note: For PhysioEx 9.0, there is one version only of PhysioEx. We have combined the previous A&P and Physiology versions of PhysioEx into one product.
Intended for use with any A&P textbook, this best-selling laboratory manual features a wide variety of exercises and activities designed to meet the needs of any 2-semester anatomy & physiology laboratory course. Known for its thorough, clearly-written exercises, full-color art, and tear-out review sheets, this lab manual gives you a hands-on laboratory experience. This lab manual is available in four versions: Cat, Main, Pig, and Rat.
This updated Laboratory Manual includes access to the new Practice Anatomy Lab™ 3.0 and new PhysioEx™ 9.0. It is also accompanied by MasteringA&P™, an online learning and assessment system proven to help students learn. In addition to providing you with access to PAL 3.0 and PhysioEx 9.0, MasteringA&P for Marieb’s HAP Lab Manual also features art labeling activities for PAL 3.0 and PhysioEx 9.0.

About the Author
For Elaine N. Marieb, taking the student’s perspective into account has always been an integral part of her teaching style. Dr. Marieb began her teaching career at Springfield College, where she taught anatomy and physiology to physical education majors. She then joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College after receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience, along with stories from the field–including those of former students, now in health careers–that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her texts and laboratory manuals are known.
In her ongoing commitment to students and her realization of the challenges they face, Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She contributes to the New Directions, New Careers Program at Holyoke Community College by providing several full-tuition scholarships each year for women returning to college after a hiatus or who are attending college for the first time and would otherwise be unable to continue with their studies without financial support. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and generously contributed to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst where she provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory that bears her name.
In 1994, Dr. Marieb received the Benefactor Award from the National Council for Resource Development, American Association of Community Colleges, which recognizes her ongoing sponsorship of student scholarships, faculty teaching awards, and other academic contributions to Holyoke Community College. In May 2000, the science building at Holyoke Community College was named in her honor.
Additionally, while actively engaged as an author, Dr. Marieb serves as a consultant for the Benjamin Cummings Interactive Physiology® CD-ROM series, and is an active member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and Sigma Xi.
Susan J. Mitchell earned her Ph.D. in physiology from the University of Michigan. She studied the cellular basis of behavior before joining the faculty at Onondaga Community College where she is currently a professor in the Department of Biological Sciences. Her research in neurophysiology and training in physiology positioned her to write the original Nervous, Endocrine, and Digestive System modules in the Interactive Physiology 10-System Suite tutorial program. She has been honored with a NISOD Excellence Award for teaching, and been awarded several grants to develop technological resources for biology at OCC. Dr. Mitchell is a member of the American Physiological Society, National Association of Biology Teachers, National Science Teachers Association, and the Human Anatomy and Physiological Society (HAPS), where she is currently active on the Curriculum and Instruction Committee.
