How the Human Body Works

An ideal complement to Human Body On File "TM": Anatomy, Human Body On File "TM": Physiology presents all the physiological processes of the body in visual detail. The collection shows with clarity how the body's systems and components function.

It illustrates the answers to such questions as:
-- What happens to cells that are cancerous?
-- How do the sense organs work?
-- How do broken bones and wounds heal?
-- What happens when a muscle is pulled?
-- What is an upset stomach?
-- How do antibodies work and what happens when they fail?
-- Why do we need to eat?
-- What causes "mouthwatering?"

A special thirty-two-page supplement links this resource with its companion volume, Human Body On File "TM": Anatomy (see page 206). Together, the two volumes provide the most comprehensive source of reproducible images of the human body.
