The society publishes three scientific journals, The Journal of Physiology, Experimental Physiology and Physiological Reports.

Congratulations to our "Newcastle Physiolympics" winning team

January 31, 2019

Congratulations to our Biology students Harriet Todd and Maria Tzika for winning the “Newcastle Physiolympics” competition 2018/19. Within our Animal Physiology module, students could voluntarily participate in a series of challenges related to Human and Animal Physiology – such as mapping their somatosensory cortex or solving a murder case based on their knowledge in muscle physiology. The winning team was awarded “augmented reality T-shirts”, allowing a virtual glimpse insight their bodies. Many thanks for your great enthusiasm and engagement in Physiology!
