Department of Physiology
The department is actively engaged in the basic and applied research in the fields of cardiovascular, respiratory system, neurophysiology, clinical electrophysiology including evoked potential, environmental and work place physiology, pain and behaviour physiology. The main thrust of work are: 1) Cardiovascular and pulmonary response in vascular disease and industrial workers; 2) Monitoring of sensory and cognitive functions;  3)   Brain  function  in  mal-nourished    children;  4)
Autonomic functions and stress physiology; 5) Electro-physiological correlates of pain and other behaviours; 6) Cognitive neurophysiology; and 7) Scientific study of effect of yoga in various diseases by evaluating cardiopulmonary and neurological parameters. It is also actively engaged in giving yoga therapy to patients and improvement in the life style in various kinds of diseases.

The department helps in B.Sc. (Medical Technology)-Radiography, B.Sc. (Physiotherapy) and open school classes. Among the useful tests conducted in the department are VEP, NCV, P300, BERA, ECG, EMG autonomic function tests, and pulmonary function test. The department is also involved in patient care and these investigations cater to the needs of department of paediatrics, ENT, ophthalmology, medicine and anesthesiology.

The department has started a Yoga and Lifestyle intervention clinic in collaboration with CCRYN (AYUSH, Min. of Health, Govt. of India) which caters to the patients and staff suffering from various diseases like hypertension, CAD, diabetes, thyroid dysfunction, asthma, and neurological problems. The clinic has already helped more than 1000 patients since its inception. Acupressure therapy has also started.

The department has introduced Problem-Based Learning (PBL) and Objective Structured Practical Examination (OSPE). Evaluation results of these programmes have been presented in various conferences and workshops.
