Human Physiology/Human physiology authors


  1. Kevin Young, U.S. Citizen and resident thereof. I was teaching pre-nursing students of Provo College through distance education technology, while working at the Utah State University Brigham City campus (From 2010-2020 I taught at Snow College, Arizona Western College, and Sul Ross State University, then returned to USU Brigham City). This textbook was created as a class project. I created the chapter pages, but the students are the primary authors (hopefully some of them will list themselves here). The fall 2006 class created the initial structure and content, while the spring 2007 students went through each chapter making improvements. Starting spring 2021, USU students will make contributions to this book.

Hopefully this project expands far beyond our classroom. If you wish to be listed specifically as a contributing author, then please include your name above this paragraph. We also thank all those who wrote Wikipedia articles that we borrowed from extensively, and all anonymous contributors.

Content and Contributions


Don P. Demyers, Ph.D

To the best of our knowledge, this is the world's first and only open content human physiology textbook. Not only will this be the most affordable introductory physiology textbook available, but we anticipate that it will become the best one available. We will focus all our efforts for two months on providing valuable content and organizing and explaining information clearly. We anticipate the book becoming increasingly better as worldwide awareness and participation spread.
