Human Physiology with Vernier is a lab book containing 24 experiments designed to encourage students to think about the physiology of various human organ systems by measuring the activity of the upper respiratory tract, the lungs, the heart, the nervous system and the musculo-skeletal system.

Homeostasis is an underlying theme and several experiments illustrate the response of the human body to stress or external influences.
