This unit provides an advanced study of physiology at the cellular level with an emphasis on the three integrative systems: the nervous, the endocrine systems and the immune system. We will explore how cellular integration and cellular interaction are able to generate complex cognitive functions such as the control and maintenance of homeostasis, and the balance between health and disease.This unit will be co-taught with unit Advanced Physiology G.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Relate the interconnection of the body?s physiological control systems, homeostasis and the interrelationship of structure and function from a perspective that spans from conception to death;
2. Integrate their knowledge of the body systems to contrast normal physiology and anatomy with the effects of disease or degeneration;
3. Critically evaluate the implications of these changes;
4. Synthesise and apply this knowledge to real situations;
5. Work independently and with others as part of a group;
6. Communicate their views effectively both verbally and in writing;
7. Support their arguments with recent scientific literature; and
8. Identify, critically analyse, interpret, debate and/or role play issues raised in the unit.
Two-hour lecture and two-hour tutorial per week.
