The purpose of this journal is to promote the integration of theories, methods, and research in human physiology. The journal publishes original studies on brain function and its disturbances, including neural mechanisms subserving perception, learning, memory, emotion, and language. Human Physiology provides a forum for many physiological areas, such as respiration, circulation, the blood system, motor functions, and digestion, as well as sport and occupational physiology. All kinds of papers on environmental physiology, including adaptation to extreme (polar zone, desert) and new (space) external conditions, are encouraged. Each year, from one to three numbers of the journal are dedicated to the broad consideration of a selected problem (e.g., mechanisms of adaptation to natural factors or development of the brain functions of children). The editorial board is highly interested in the cooperation of scientists from all countries and accepts manuscripts submitted in English.

Human Physiology is abstracted and/or indexed in:

Human Physiology is published in Russian as Fiziologiya Cheloveka, which is also abstracted/indexed in PubMed/Medline.
