physiological phenomenon

Tuesday 9 August 2016


Definition : An abnormal physiological phenomenon is the anomalies of a physiological parameter.

The physiology is the scientific study of the normal function in living systems.

It is a sub-discipline of biology and medicine,

its focus is in how organisms, organ systems, organs, cells, and biomolecules carry out the chemical or physical functions that exist in a living system.

Given the size of the field, it is divided into, among others, animal physiology (including that of humans), plant physiology, cellular physiology, microbial physiology (microbial metabolism), bacterial physiology, and viral physiology.

In medicine, a physiologic state is one occurring from normal body function, rather than pathologically, which is centered on the anormalies that occur in animal diseases, including humans.
