Human Physiology

A short introduction to the field of human physiology


Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • Living systems possess a special organization

  • Physiology studies two related aspects of that organization: structure and function

  • For this reason physiology is closely related to Anatomy and Biochemistry


Homeostasis l.jpg

Homeostasis

  • This is the name for the processes which keep the condition and environment of the tissues in the proper condition to sustain life.


Cells l.jpg

Cells

  • Cells are the basic units of life

  • they make up tissues and organs in the body

  • Cells can only come from other cells (The CELL THEORY)


Tissues l.jpg

Tissues

  • muscle

  • nervous

  • epithelial

  • connective


Glands l.jpg

Glands

  • Epithelial tissue

  • Specialized for secretion

  • Exocrine glands: secrete through ducts to the outside of the body

  • Endocrine glands: ductless glands which produce hormones which are released into the blood


Organs l.jpg

Organs

  • Two or more types of primary tissue

  • Organized to perform a particular function


Examples of organs l.jpg

Examples of Organs

  • Stomach

  • Heart

  • Liver

  • Kidneys

  • brain

  • many others


Homeostasis the essence of life l.jpg

Homeostasis: The Essence of Life

  • Cells live in a fairly constant environment

  • The cells, in turn, constitute the tissues which provide that environment

Body systems l.jpg

Body Systems

  • Nervous

  • Endocrine

  • Immune

  • Circulatory

  • Muscle/skeletal

  • Integument

  • Respiratory

  • Urinary

  • Digestive

  • Reproductive

Failure of Homeostasis

  • Often leads to sickness and eventually death
