Science students of today are inundated with a variety of complex and technical information. But the presentation of this information in a learner-friendly manner is often a scarcity. This Anatomy and Physiology coloring book presents anatomical structures with large, clear, yet detailed diagrams. The accompanying physiologic concepts are concise, with a sprinkle of humor. This makes each coloring exercise a fun and interactive experience that is conducive to student learning. The authors combined their 50-plus years of instructorship in Anatomy and Physiology to reinforce the concept of anatomical form fitting function, and forge a broader understanding of the interdependence of body systems with the rest of the natural world. Much of the subject matter they have crystallized to the essentials that students are required know, and emphasis is placed on details often overlooked in their study. This book capitalizes on an excellent early-learning modality involving the combined use of visual and motor centers within the brain. Each page presents a single anatomical or physiological concept in the appropriate style, format and size that is most conducive to efficient learning. The text-guided page which accompanies each exercise, not only walks the student through the exercise, but also provides additional key information for ancillary learning. Each exercise requires two sets of motor responses: one for number-matching structures with their correct label and the other for coloring the structure and color-coding the label. Although other anatomy study guides and workbooks are available, this one stands out because of its: (1) clarity (2) larger label-guided diagrams (3) its learning-friendly style and format and (4) its utilization of learning modalities common to the brain. Working with this book will leave a positive and 'brightly colored' impression of the anatomy of the human body.
