Each chapter is written by a well-known physiologist who has contributed to our current understanding of renal function. Together the authors offer an inside perspective on the historical record of the discipline, from its roots in the ancient world to the most recent findings of modern times. Among the many topics discussed are renal blood flow and the dynamics of glomerular filtration; the clearance concept in renal physiology; micropuncture and microperfusion; transport of electrolytes across renal tubules; and diuretics and renal drug development. Physiologists; science historians.
