The editor notes that the purpose of this edition is to present that part of physiology of special concern to student, practitioner, and medical scientist by means of the researches that have led to present knowledge. However, an even broader scope is achieved: the attempt to present mammalian physiology as an independent biologic discipline as well as a basic medical science. Many of the subjects considered are approached from a base of cellular physiology and biophysics.

This neurophysiological volume is the work of 15 scientists, more than half of them on the staff of Johns Hopkins University where the editor is director of the department of physiology.

The physiology of nerve and muscle is considered in five chapters by Philip W. Davies, with chapters on muscle contraction by Kenneth L. Zierler, and vertebrate smooth muscle by Jean M. Marshall.

Neuromuscular transmission (28 pages) is the work of William L. Nastuck
