Physiology Of Cells: Case Study

Welcome to the 21st century electronic frontier classroom for human anatomy and physiology. This case study/clinical review is found in the chapter "Physiology of Cells" that include such topics as diffusion, osmosis, catabolism and cell growth. You may need to do some background reading and research before answering these questions. Please open the P. M. H. (patient medical history) google documents file that is associated with the "physiology of cells - case study). Which is always an excellent idea to take a few personal notes. This case study/clinical review has a setting called T. E. M. (Test Exam Mode). This mode does not reveal the correct answer during the testing period. It will however produce a report for each completed attempt. This tes
