Physiology

Investigating the body's life processes from a single cell to the largest organ

Physiology examines how the body's cells, tissues and organs interact with each other and the surrounding environment to produce beneficial effects on function. Pathophysiology is a related field of study and investigates how normal processes become disrupted and promote dysfunction in patients under conditions of disease.
