Content

This unit introduces students to the basic language and concepts of physiology in relation to the function of humans. The unifying theme throughout this unit is homeostasis. Physiology is investigated as a group of interacting systems, each of which itself has a number of structural and functional levels of organisation. Topics include homeostasis and the internal environment, the nervous system, skeletal and smooth muscle physiology; and gastrointestinal, endocrine and reproductive physiology.

Assessment

1 x class test 20%, practical work (1 x group assignment 25%, 1 x individual practical assignment 10%; practical tests 5%) 40%, examination 40%
