Book Description

Mathematical and Computational Methods in Physiology discusses the importance of quantitative description of physiological phenomena and for quantitative comparison of experimental data. An article explains the homeostasis of the body with a focus on the controlling aspects. This section evaluates the concepts of modern physiology and biocybernetics.
The canal-ocular reflex and the otolith-ocular reflex in man stimulates eye rotations compensatory for head angular and linear displacements. The book enumerates some modelling and simulation to observe the visual-vestibular interaction during angular and linear body acceleration. A section on the determination of cardiovascular control is given. The text reviews the mathematical models of the biological age of the rat. A numerical simulation of water transport in epithelial junctions is explained comprehensively. A chapter analyzing the computer simulation of drug-receptor interaction is presented.
The book will provide useful information to zoologists, doctors, ophthalmologists, students and researchers in the field of medicine.
