Book Monograph Series

The American Physiological Society is devoted to fostering education, scientific research, and dissemination of information in the physiological sciences. The APS publishes three book series, now in partnership with Springer: Perspectives in Physiology (formerly People and Ideas), Methods in Physiology and Physiology in Health and Disease (formerly Clinical Physiology), as well as general titles. For further information about previously published and forthcoming titles, see below.

Perspectives in Physiology

This popular series seeks to place medical science inside a greater historical framework, describing the main pathways of development and highlighting the contributions of prominent investigators.

Methods in Physiology

This series describes experimental techniques in cellular, molecular and general physiology. Each book is edited by experts in their field and covers theory and history behind the method, critical commentary, major applications with examples, limitations and extensions of each technique, and vital future directions.

Physiology in Health and Disease

Your bridge between basic science and clinical medicine. Each book brings together fresh ideas in the study of disease states and crucial physiological function. Each is meticulously edited by leaders in the field it covers.
