Can you also use "κανονικός" for normal?

Yes, you can. ^.^

I wonder how physiological would be in Modern Greek.

I was about to ask a similar question to what Lng52 asked, but with "συνήθης." Υπάρχουν "φυσιολογικός" "κανονικός" και "συνήθης"... ποια είναι η διαφορά μεταξύ όλων αυτών των λέξεων;

Συνήθης is just 'usual', it might not be normal! ;) Wordreference gives συνήθης as a translation of normal, and there is overlap indeed -see the example. It's not wrong, but I would keep the distinction between κανονικός=normal and usual=συνήθης/συνηθισμένος. (Συνήθης is more old-fashioned and formal than συνηθισμένος but there's no need to avoid using it, it's fine.)
Φυσιολογικός is also normal -or physiological! :)
