  Human physiology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Human physiology is the science of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical functions of normal humans or human tissues or organs.
Most aspects of human physiology are closely homologous to corresponding aspects of animal physiology, and animal experimentation has provided much of the foundation of physiological knowledge.
Human physiology is one of the basic sciences of medical study, and as such is most often applied as medical care.

This course, in conjunction with its prerequisite Human Anatomy with Cadaver (303), provides students with a sound working knowledge of human physiology and anatomy.
The focus of this course is physiology of the human adult including mechanisms of function of the organs of the body, communication and integration of organ systems, and function under normal and abnormal conditions.
The scope of the paper should include normal physiology and disturbed physiology, symptoms and diagnosis, treatment and prognosis, and the interaction that the student, when she/he is a clinician, might have with a patient who has this disease/disorder.

 NASA - Exploration Systems - Human Physiology Research and the ISS: Staying Fit Along the Journey
When the cardio-vascular system is placed in microgravity, which affects fluid flow, pressure in the blood vessels changes, and the shearing force is eventually reduced, which increases the endothelial cell layer's hydraulic conductivity, or its ability to transport water and solute, making the layer much less effective as a barrier.
These include atherosclerosis, a degenerative disease of arteries that underlies heart attacks and strokes; diabetic retinopathy, leakage of albumin into the retina; and when tissue is inflamed, the transvascular transport that leads to tissue edema (swelling).
NASA is not the only federal agency interested in human physiology research, and NASA is benefiting from and contributing to what other organizations are learning.

Cohen's lab is interested in the mechanisms underlying plastic changes in the human central nervous system and in the development of novel therapeutic approaches for recovery of function based on the understanding of these mechanisms.
The goal of our activity is to understand the mechanisms underlying plastic changes in the human central nervous system and to develop novel therapeutic approaches for recovery of function based on these advances.
Our research protocols in healthy volunteers are geared to identify mechanisms of human neuroplasticity and to develop interventional approaches to enhance them when they play a beneficial role and down-regulate them when they are maladaptive.

 Fundamentals of Physiology: A Human Perspective (with CD-ROM and InfoTrac), Third Edition
While both texts cover the same key topics in a current, engaging, and clinically relevant manner, FUNDAMENTALS OF PHYSIOLOGY is briefer, lower in level, and requires less of a background in chemistry, physics, and math than its sister text.
The media exercises and animated tutorials on the accompany CD are fully integrated with both the text and the illustrations to help students effectively coordinate all of their learning assets.
Some of the exercises encourage students to investigate their own physiology (sensory systems, blood pressure, etc.) For your ease of use, a preparation guide is posted online.
