Physiology – the branch of biology that studies how living things function, especially with respect to the physical and chemical phenomena that are used. - How things work? How blood vessels control blood flow. - Chemical and physical phenomena are limited and bounded by physics and chemistry. Where does Physiology fit into Biological Sciences? - All things are connected one way or other. There is a hierarchy of order that determine the physiology which determines the behaviour (or vice versa). Types of Physiology I Animal Physiology: - How do animals live in diverse environments? - Physiological diversity: - Comparative Physiology: how different organisms solve similar problems. Medical Physiology: - Understanding the human body in health and disease: humancentric physiological approach. How the human body works. - Often uses animal ‘models’: animal models are used to figure out how physiological processes work. Types of Physiology II • Based on level of study: - Cell and Molecular Physiology – MOSTLY IN THIS COURSE - Systems Physiology - Integrative Physiology - Organismal Physiology Themes in Physiology 1. Physics and Chemistry are the basics of Physiology Physiological processes obey the laws of physics and chemistry 2. Physiological Systems are regulated:
