Physiomics as the interdisciplinary bridge between revolutionary cellular 'omic' approaches and organismal next-level approaches. Technological developments have revolutionized high throughput profiling of cellular expression patterns and their dynamics. The emergent fields of genomics, proteomics, lipidomics, and metabolomics now catalog cellular phenotypes and leverage computational approaches to relate expression dynamics to alterations and function that uniquely identify and differentiate cell types. While the emergent field of Systems Biology attempts to tackle the overwhelming complexity of the measurable 'interactomics' in cellular expression dynamics, the field of physiology aims to synthesize an understanding of the functional contribution of various specialized cell types - themselves assembling into highly complex functional units known as organ systems. Informal discussion follows. Light refreshments are served at a. Photo courtesy of Dr.
Nasal and oral cavities
The oral cavity, better known as the mouth, is the start of the alimentary canal. It has three major functions:. In this article, we shall look at the anatomy of the oral cavity — its divisions, contents, and any clinical correlations. The oral cavity spans between the oral fissure anteriorly — the opening between the lips , and the oropharyngeal isthmus posteriorly — the opening of the oropharynx. It is divided into two parts by the upper and lower dental arches formed by the teeth and their bony scaffolding. The two divisions of the oral cavity are the vestibule, and the mouth cavity proper. Fig 1. The horseshoe-shaped vestibule is situated anteriorly. The vestibule communicates with the mouth proper via the space behind the third molar tooth, and with the exterior through the oral fissure.

Nasal and oral cavities : opening or hollow parts of the nose and mouth. Superior nasal concha : bony layer folded onto itself in the upper part of the nasopharynx. Sphenoidal sinus : cavity in the area of the sphenoid. Nasopharynx : part of the pharynx in the area of the nose.
