Much recent progress in physiology has been due to the special studies associated with war problems. This edition has recognized that fact and has added or revised its discussions of nerve degeneration, eye fatigue, color appreciation, camouflage, dark adaptation, auditory efficiency, somatic and visceral pain, auditory efficiency, principles of transfusion, blood substitutes, hemorrhage and shock, artificial respiration, dietary deficiencies, physical fitness and fatigue, water deprivation, acclimatization, altitude, air and seasickness and other sections as well. Approximately one third of the text has been completely rewritten, and other sections have been significantly altered. It is consequently apparent to how great a degree the knowledge of this fundamental science has been subject to recent change and how successful the author is in keeping this authoritative textbook abreast of advances in the field.
