  •     Description    
  •     Contents    


Exercise places significant demands on the human body at all levels and requires coordinated changes in muscle, blood flow, neuronal and hormonal signaling, and metabolism. This volume provides a state-of-the-art view of our understanding of the biology of exercise from the molecular level to whole organism physiology.
