Form Follows Function Follows Form

You guys, lookin' forward to starting the nerding out (and working hard, meh) process tomorrow after work!

"Although it is possible to study anatomy and physiology individually, they are really inseparable because function always reflects structure. That is, what a structure can do depends on its specific form. This key concept is called the principle of complementarity of structure and function."
