The study of physiology is, in a sense, the study of life. It answers the question about the internal workings of organisms and how they interact with the world around them.
Physiology studies how the organs and systems within the body work, how they speak to each other, and how they combine their efforts to make conditions favorable for survival.
The Department of Physiology is one of the first three Departments of the M.B.B.S. program.
The department is well equipped with four practical halls, two of them measuring 250 sqm and the other two are 130 sqm The major practical halls are provided with compound microscope and other teaching materials to conduct practical’s. Human physiology lab is also equipped with latest equipment to study the human body.
Physiology seeks to understand biological function spanning the range from molecular mechanisms to medical problems. No other field has such an important task and integrates a number of systems of the complex human body.
Physiology studies the various including the cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, endocrine, immune and central nervous systems. Physiology also explores cellular processes such as synaptic transmission, the immune response and muscle excitation-contraction coupling as well as molecular mechanisms of ion channels and transporters.
