Prof. B.K. Anand (1917-2007)
After completing his pioneering research in the USA on the role of Hypothalamus in the feeding behavior of rat in 1952, he came back to India to establish and lead the Department of Physiology from 1956 till 1974. He was awarded Shanti Swarup Bhatnagar Prize for Science and Technology in 1963 and Padma Shri in 1969 for his meritorious contributions.
Prof. Baldev Singh (1904-1998)
He is often referred to as the ‘Grand-father Neuron’ by the scientific community. He joined as Emeritus Professor of Physiology in AIIMS. He was interested in research on lateral hypothalamus, highaltitude, yoga, sleep, consciousness and hyperpyrexia.Under his leadership, the department became an international center of neurophysiological research.
Professor GS Chhina (1926–2011)
He joined department of Physiology at AIIMS and worked with Dr BK Anand and Dr Baldev Singh on food intake, reproduction and yoga. Even after retirement in 1986, he continued working as Emeritus Professor and contributed to the field of Physiology.
Surender Kumar Manchanda (1931-1998)
He joined the Department of Physiology as a Demonstrator under Prof. B.K.Anand in 1957.He took over as the Head and Professor of Physiology 1974 and led the Department till November 1991. He made major scientific contributions in the field of Neurosciences and Reproduction.

Department of Physiology was established and developed by eminent neurophysiologist Prof. Bal Krishan Anand in 1956. The first batch of MBBS students were admitted in 1956. First MD students(1959) were Dr Pritam Kaur Gill and Dr Sushil Dua while first PhD student(1965) was Dr. R. Vijayan Pillai. During the golden period of department (1956-1975), department attracted many national and international researchers and students which included Dr SK Dua, Dr GS Chhina, Dr KN Sharma, Dr SK Manchanda, Dr T Desiraju, Dr Usha Nayar, Dr Utaka Oomura to name few. First scientific investigation in the world on yoga and meditation was started by Dr Anand and Dr Chhina in the department in 1961.
