Are you any different from a robot? How does your nervous system respond to the world around you? What happens to your body in stressful environments? The Physiology major will teach you how the human body works, from the molecular and cellular level, to tissues and organs, and explain how these interact together with the environment to produce beneficial results for the organism. You will also examine diseases, and the changes that occur at the molecular and cellular level and how these impact on whole body function. Through these investigations you will come to understand how physiologists contribute to the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies to combat the mechanisms of disease.
