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.
