Human beings in many ways maintain homeostasis. It is main principle of Anatomy and Physiology. Anatomy and Physiology are two branches of biology dealing with the normal Status of living being. Anatomy reveals the normal structures and interrelationship among other structures. It has many sub divisions like gross, imaging and also pathological anatomy etc. Whereas, physiology deals with the normal functions of living beings. Physiology tells about the normal function of individual system in living being. The basic principles are thoroughly explained in principles of anatomy and physiology.
