Physiology as such a vast subject with unlimited scope and which can be studied in different-ways. There was a long left need, among students and Teachers for a text book with recent information and written according to national syllabus. Efforts have been made to collect recent informations from several standard works and journals. I had tried to add two new Topics on "Physiology of Aviation, high altitude, space and deep-sea diving and the "Chronobiology". Attempts have been made to simply the Language but in a exhaustive way.
