Message from the Chairman, Robert Eisenberg

Physiology is the study of function and the mechanism of function of the various components of plants and animals. Physiological questions are asked of tissues at every level of structural complexity, ranging from questions of human behavior (how does a conscious human control the position of his joints?), to questions of the physics of ionic movement (how does an ion cross a membrane 3 nm thick?).
