This completely revised and updated source book provides comprehensive and authoritative coverage of cell physiology and membrane biophysics. Intended primarily as a text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and as a reference for researchers, this multidisciplinary book includes several new chapters and is an invaluable aid to scientists interested in cell physiology, biophysics, cell biology, electrophysiology, and cell signaling.

Key Features

  • Includes broad coverage of both animal and plant cells
  • Appendices review basics of the propagation of action potentials, electricity, and cable properties


Graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and researchers in physiology, biophysics, cell biology, molecular biology, and biochemistry; upper-level undergraduates taking courses in cellular physiology

@from:Praise for the Second Edition @qu:"The authoritative volume in the field of cell physiology and certainly one of the most current sources of comprehensive information available." @source:--CHOICE @qu:"...a core textbook in cell physiology... The need for such a book is well justified and it fulfills its objectives admirably. It is especially strong on the subjects of signal transduction, membrane biology, ion channels, and neuronal and muscle cell physiology... It is a solid textbook in its field...". @source:--DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS @qu:"Cell Physiology Source Book 2e will be useful for advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying cell physiology, cell biophysics, electrophysiology, and biological scientists in many fields. The book is particularly suitable for introducing cell physiology to students with training in the physical sciences and for introducing cell biophysics to students with backgrounds in biology." @source:--BIOPHYSICAL JOURNAL
