Anatomy and Physiology
Anatomy and Physiology Diploma
Anatomy and Physiology deal with a lifeform’s structures and functions. They are both approaches to studying a living organism and hence similar and closely associated. However, they are distinct perspectives as anatomy deals with the structure of living things, i.e. the parts and components that make up the biological systems of living things. In contrast, physiology is concerned with the functions of living things’ parts and components, starting from the basic cell to a complex biological organ. In simple terms, anatomy is the study of parts of the body of a living organism. At the same time, physiology is the study of how these parts work individually and as a whole. These two topics are studied simultaneously to understand the living organism as a biological system comprehensively.
Anatomy is the area of natural science that focuses on the structural organization of life forms. It covers the forms, parts and structure of living organisms. The external appearance and features and internal parts are both included in anatomy. Anatomy is derived from the Greek words ana- and tomia which means ‘up’ and ‘cutting’, respectively. Therefore, the literal meaning of the root word of anatomy is ‘cutting up’ or dissection.
Physiology studies principal organ systems and how the various parts of the body work together. It includes understanding cells, organs, and muscles and their chemical processes and associated functions. The word is derived from the Greek word phusiologia meaning ‘natural philosophy.
