Physiology is the science of the mechanical, physical, and biochemical function of animals including humans, and serves as the foundation of modern medicine. As a discipline, it covers key homeostatic processes, such as the regulation of temperature, blood flow and hormones; and also connects science, medicine, and health, and creates a framework for understanding how the organisms body adapts to stresses, physical activity, and disease.
Muscle tissues stabilize body position, regulate organ volume, generate heat, and propel fluids and food matter through various body systems.
Module 3 Nervous System
Both the nervous and endocrine systems have the same objective: to keep controlled conditions within limits that maintain life. The nervous system regulates body activities by responding rapidly using nerve impulses; the endocrine system responds by releasing hormones.The nervous system is also responsible for our perceptions, behaviors, and memories, and it initiates all voluntary movements.
Module 5b. Reproductive Physiology
THE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEMS AND HOMEOSTASIS: The male and female reproductive organs work together to produce offspring. In addition, the female reproductive organs contribute to sustaining the growth of embryos and fetuses.The male and female reproductive organs can be grouped by function. The gonads—testes in males and ovaries in females—produce gametes and secrete sex hormones.
