New Pedagogy
• In each chapter Study Guide, where students were previously prompted to distinguish between five true and five false statements, they are now prompted to analyze the fallacies of 10 false statements.
• This edition deletes 21 increasingly obsolete eponymous terms that are no longer recommended by the Terminologia Anatomica or Gray’s Anatomy (such as Skene glands, Howship lacunae, Auerbach plexus, Hassall corpuscles, and organ of Corti) and replaces them with the standard English terms for easier student comprehension and retention.
• The explanation of units of chemical concentration is moved from chapter 2 to appendix C. Enhanced Concepts Saladin’s Anatomy & Physiology, eighth edition, also updates and enhances about 25 more major physiological concepts in response to user feedback, including:
• Chapter 3: leak and gated channels

• Chapter 16: tactile functions of lingual papillae, function of oblique muscles of the eye
• Chapter 17: stimuli inducing secretion of individual hormones, photoperiod and pineal gland function
• Chapter 18: ABO blood types in hemolytic disease of the newborn, lymphocyte selection in the thymus
• Chapter 20: sympathetic effects on coronary arteries
• Chapter 21: precipitation versus agglutination in antibody action
