Introduction and general guidelines
This series aims to highlight the latest experimental techniques and methods used to understand the most fundamental questions in physiology research from molecular to organ function in living organisms. Review articles or opinions on methodologies or applications including the advantages and limitations of each are welcome. This Topic will cover the latest advances in technologies and up-to-date methods which help advance science.

The contributions to this collection will undergo peer-review, but the criteria may be adjusted to fit the present Research Topic; for instance, while novelty is not necessarily decisive, the utility of a method or protocol must be evident. We welcome contributions covering all aspects of physiology and the submissions will be handled by the team of Topic Editors in the respective sections.

Frontiers in Physiology supports the FAIR (Findability, Accessibility, Interoperability, and Reusability) principles for scientific data management and stewardship (Wilkinson et al., Sci. Data 3:160018, 2016).

This Research Topic welcomes:
• Methods: Include either existing methods that are significantly improved or adapted for specific purposes or new methods, which may also include primary (original) data.
• Protocols: Should provide a detailed description, with pitfalls and troubleshooting, and be of immediate use to the readers. The protocols must be proven to work.
• Perspective or General Commentaries on methods and protocols relevant for physiology research.
• Reviews and mini-reviews of current methods and protocols highlighting the important future directions of the field.

For more information on the description and formats of the different article types please see here.

Integrative Physiology guidelines
Methods and Applications in Integrative Physiology welcomes contributions on new or existing methods and protocols on physiological processes and regulatory systems as well as their perturbation during pathological processes. This Research Topic aims to highlight cutting-edge emerging technology and techniques for new sensors, data collection, processing, analysis, and modelling for a wide range of research, clinical, and healthcare applications, from bench to bedside. Manuscripts relating to biomedical approaches such as in silico, in vitro, non-human models and human studies, bioinformatics, computational biology, and health informatics are encouraged.

Keywords: Physiological Processes, Regulatory Systems, Methods, Protocols, Data Collection, Data Analysis, Computational Biology

Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
