Use of imagination and images are helpful visuals to communicate ideas and concepts in Physiology. Story telling always engages the audience. The teacher can creatively use analogies, metaphors, and allegories to communicate events in Physiology. These approaches direct attention to the many homeostatic interactions and cross-talk between organs, electrolytes, transporters. The added use of cartoons makes Physiology learning enjoyable. The students themselves can also develop their own imaginative doodles to summarize and tell the Physiology story.
