Overview of the Internal Physiological System of the Human Body
Human physiology is described as the science of life as it correlates the study of the structure-function relation of all organs in in vivo system. Human physiology is the domain which states about the working of human system. It describes the biochemical and biophysical mechanisms from the molecular level including the cellular activity related to the behaviour of whole body. Physiology deals with the frameworks, the organs of the human body and their capacities to support the overall life processes within the body. Numerous frameworks and systems composed of several concerned organs perform a specific end task and bring about the homeostasis in a healthy living system. This chapter enriches us about the interrelated well-knitted cell-tissue-organ-system-organism functions individually to integrate all the systems to reflect ultimate vital activities of the human body.
