Info (about this site)

What is this site about?
1.
This is a simple site, dedicated to teaching the basics of physiology.

2.
I have used a similar site for many years, teaching human medical physiology in several medical and para-medical schools.
3.
Now, I have completely renewed and upgraded this site, inserted MCQ's and downloadable PDF's, and included a Glossary for every page.
4.
If you are interested in visiting my old sites, go to www.HumanPhysiology.academy

5.
While I am (still) expanding and upgrading this site, I most certainly welcome your comments,suggestions and/or questions. Feel free to contact me on:

Thanks for your interest!

Tips how to use this site
1.
I always try to be as simple and as straightforward as possible. But, if you don't agree, let me know!
-> info@BasicPhysiology.com
2.
From the contents page, you can decide which pages you want to read and learn from.

3.
In addition, every page has the possibility, in the sidebar to the right, of dowloading a pdf file of that page. Also, in many pages, there is the possibility of looking at the glossary dedicated to that page and to test your knowledge with the help of several MCQ's.


4.
In addition, below these links in the side bar to the right, you can also tick the 'hide text' button. This will "blur" the text in all the panels, in order to help you memorizing the text. If you want to see if you remembered corectly a particular piece of text, just move to cursor to that particular (yellow) panel and the text will become 'sharp' and legible! Good luck!
5.
Oh yes! Did you know that you can better study (anything, not only physiology) from printext texts, rather then from screen? From my own experience I know that, if I have to write an important letter or mail (like a job employment), I better print out my text and read it carefully before mailing it.
6.
I am always surprised at how many mistakes I discover on paper that I had missed on screen. Apparently, research has been performed on this subject which you can find in this text or site. That is why, in all my pages on this BasicPhysiology site, I have added the possibility for you to download the text (and figures) of that page as a PDF. For FREE!

Acknowledgements
1.
I need to acknowledge a LOT of people who helped me in learning and teaching physiology!


2.
In the first place, my very first Physiology teacher at the University of Amsterdam; Lennaert Bouman. His way of teaching (funny, witty) became a role model for me.
3.
Also several other staff at that department played an important role in my career (Vic Bonke, Habo Jongsma, Peter Hollander).


4.
I also learned a lot during my first appointment at the University of Maastricht in the Netherlands (Maurits Allessie, Rob Reneman, and Ger van der Vusse amongst others)

5.
The same was true during my appointment at the Medical School in Al Ain, in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. This is were I also started to develop a website for my students.


6.
And this was further expanded with my friend John Morrison who joined me in HumanPhysiology.academy and who subsequenty developed a responsive site for the nerves and the brain (neurones.co.uk).
