Physiology

by Thad Wilson, PhD

Physiology is the study of the normal functioning of cells and the systems made up of cells in an organism. In medical science, this branch of biology is narrowed down to the study of the normal functioning of humans. Thus, physiology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the main biochemical principles involved in the appropriate functioning of humans. The most important of these functions is the concept of homeostasis, which describes the auto-regulatory properties of a living being.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the physiology of every organ system. For optimal comprehension, a basic understanding of human anatomy and histology is necessary, along with a good grasp of biochemistry and physics, focusing on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanism, and electricity.

On this subject rests the foundation of the more complex concepts of pathology, specifically how disease processes are initiated when physiological processes are affected. As the medical profession progressively focuses on the molecular aspects of diseases, physicians must have a good understanding of biomolecules and cellular machinery to help understand the many changes and interventions that are being gradually discovered.

Complete knowledge
By VIVEK N. on 04. November 2021 for Respiratory Physiology

I am a practising doctor not appearing for any examination, I am watching it to refresh my knowledge. I find it very useful my concepts are refreshed I am getting additional information about recent research and it’s easier to understand with visuals and graphs

 
Insulin lecture
By Anna P. on 26. October 2021 for Insulin Secretion and Regulation

Give a big picture of how insulin works. It is easy to go deep after watch Dr.wilson's lecture.

 
Neurophysiology by doctor Thad Wilson is a brilliant tutorial. Many thanks indeed.

Hi Lecturio Team, Yes, I like it a lot neurophysiology by doctor Thad Wilson. Great presentation and explanation. In my view, the neurophysiology is one of the vital key of the medicine by knowing it and combining knowledge and skills with anatomy, pathophysiology and surgery you could figure out pathology in terms of when you facing patients with traumatic injury . In contrast when you seeing infected patient with contagious viruses, bacteria and fungi and so on, of course you need to immediately think about combining knowledge and skills of microbiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology and biochemistry. Yes, all courses are given so well presented. Yes . I certainly enjoyed it Lecturio as it has all components of courses which are important for every doctor who wants to excel their skills. Many thanks indeed for the course organizers, Showing on cadaver will be even better to get precise knowledge and skills.
