    Syllabus

    This unit will take a comparative approach to the study of Physiology. By comparing the physiological challenges that species and groups of species have faced and the adaptations that have solved them, students will acquire the foundations of Physiology from cells to organ systems. The particular topics covered will include: Fundamentals of Physiology, Respiration, Circulation, Muscle and Neuro-muscular junctions, Integrating System Neurons, Sensory processes and the Endocrine system. In addition, two special physiology topics will be covered: Animal Navigation and Diving in Marine Mammals.
