Summary Introduction

To review:

Relate anatomy to physiology according to the principle of complementarity.

Answer

Solution:

Physiology and the anatomy of the human body are both closely linked to medical science. The principle of complementarity states that anatomy and physiology are inseparable function is dependent upon structure.

Explanation

Explanation:

Anatomy is the branch of biology that deals with the study of internal organs of an organism. The study of large structures, which are easily observable are called gross anatomy or macroscopic anatomy. While body structures that cannot be seen with the naked eyes, such as cells and some tissues are called microscopic anatomy.

Physiology, on the other hand, is the branch of biology that deals with the study of the functions of various parts (cells, organs, and the organ systems) of living organisms. Neurophysiology and cardiac physiology are the major subdivisions of the physiology. The study of function and working of the nervous system is known as neurophysiology. While the cardiac physiology is the study of efficient heart functioning.

Anatomy is one of the stagnant studies, while physiology is more vibrant. Physiology would not exist without anatomy because if there were not any structures, there would not be a need to explain their functionality.
