The study of complex physiological and metabolic aspects of human health can be powerfully enhanced by the use of user-friendly simulation software. This book and CD-ROM integrate the use of STELLA software into the teaching of health, nutrition and physiology, and can be used on their own in nutrition and physiology courses, or can serve as a supplement to introduce the role that simulation modeling can play. Dynamic Modeling in the Health Sciences presents key subjects ranging from the theory of metabolic control to weight regulation to bone metabolism, and gives readers the tools to simulate these dynamic processes with STELLAÊ<ha software. Topics include methods for simulation of gene expression, a multi-stage model of tumor development, theories of aging, circadian rhythms and physiological time, and a model for managing weight loss and preventing obesity.
