1. Introduction

 

The goal of Physiology is to explain the physical and chemical factors that are responsible for the origin, development and progression of life.

In Human Physiology, we attempt to explain the specific characteristics & mechanisms of the human body that makes it a living being.

Human physiology is taught in first year along with Human Anatomy & Human Biochemistry and understanding of Physiology forms the foundation of the medical knowledge which will be acquired later.
