Gastrointestinal Hormones

Physiology is a really interesting class (and a challenging one). While anatomy teaches where everything is in the body, physiology teaches how everything works in the body. For this new block, we have a new visiting professor from Temple University School of Medicine and a new unit: Gastrointestinal Tract. We’ll learn about the whole process from the time we put food in our mouth until the time it comes out the other end. We’ve already covered endocrine, neural, and myogenic control as well as covered the complex physiology of swallowing and peristalsis this past week. Check out the quiz I made about GI hormones and see how much you can get!
