Biophysics of the Senses (Second Edition) connects fundamental properties of physics to biological systems, relating them directly to the human body. It includes discussions of the role of charges and free radicals in disease and homeostasis, how aspects of mechanics impact normal body functions, human bioelectricity and circuitry, forces within the body, and biophysical sensory mechanisms. This is an exciting view of how sensory aspects of biophysics are utilized in everyday life for students who are curious but struggle with the connection between biology and physics. Updates to the first edition include two new chapters covering the mechanics of sound and hearing and power tools. Key Features
  • Bridges the gap between physics and biology.
  • Easy to follow for those that are new to the field.
  • Highlights real-world applications of physics.
  • Includes step-by-step examples.

Tennille D Presley, PhD is a tenured Associate Professor of Physics at Winston Salem State University (WSSU). She obtained her BS degree in Interdisciplinary Physics from North Carolina A & T State University, and acquired her MS and PhD degrees in Biophysics from The Ohio State University. While at The Ohio State University, she became the first African American to graduate from the Biophysics program, received the Young Investigator Award and the Best Advanced Research Award.

Following her PhD, Dr Presley completed her post-doctoral training at Wake Forest University in the Department of Physics and the Translational Science Center. Since joining WSSU in 2010, she has been the recipient of the Research Initiation Program for two years, the Preparing Critical Faculty for the Future Program Grant funded by the National Science Foundation and the Co-Director for the Provost's Scholars Science Immersion Program. Furthermore, she has been a part of the National Institutes of Health Programs to Increase Diversity Among Individuals Engaged (PRIDE) in Health Related Research division of Functional and Applied Genomics of Blood Disorders. Most recently, Dr Presley was Visiting Faculty at Brookhaven National Laboratory and a recipient of the Buckeyes Under 40 Award. She has published more than a dozen articles in free radical research. Her current research involves investigating the effect of thermodynamics on free radicals and proteins in a state of vascular dysfunction.

Das Dateiformat ePUB ist sehr gut für Romane und Sachbücher geeignet - also für "fließenden" Text ohne komplexes Layout. Bei E-Readern oder Smartphones passt sich der Zeilen- und Seitenumbruch automatisch den kleinen Displays an. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
