4. Lecturio

One of the best video lectures right now for Physiology is by lecturio. Making notes along with the videos is so easy and the amount of information covered is updated every year. The best part about lecturio is their bookmatcher – You just tell the page no. on the particular edition of any standard book and the bookmatcher will tell you all the available videos relevant for that page. Another thing I love about it is its price. It is so affordable compared to the other video lectures I have seen.
