The essential concern of physiology is how living things work and, as physiology relates to man, it is the study of the normal functioning of the human body. The methods and tools of physiology are those used in the experimental sciences, and its range cuts across many different scientific disciplines. Physiology emphasizes the basic functions of organs, the interactions and coordination of these diverse functions, and attempts to analyze these functions in terms of physical and chemical processes. A knowledge and understanding of the functioning of the body and its component parts is an essential part of a general education.
