    Anatomy and Physiology are probably 2 of many different sciences necessary for the best understanding of the human body and how it functions. So I believe that in order to compare two things, you need to explain what each are first. ANATOMY is the study of the human body. It can also be defined as being the study of how various parts of the body interact and work together. PHYSIOLOGY is the study of how living organisms function. That includes nutrition, movement, and reproduction. So you are pretty...
