The course analyses the functions of the human body from the molecular and cellular level up to the level of organs and systems. The various topics take into account the fundamental concepts of homeostasis and structure-function relationship. Pre-requisites for the student: fundaments of General and Organic Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology and Histology.
The course will provide fundamental knowledge about the physiology of excitable, nervous and muscular tissues, the cardiovascular, respiratory, renal and endocrine systems needed to achieve the training goals of their degree courses. The course aims to provide a complete insight into the General Physiology, starting from the Cellular Mechanisms of action, to the Integrated Physiology. Cellular aspects are fundamental to understand the physiology of organs and apparatus, with particular regard to the mechanisms of regulation and maintenance of homeostasis.
Teaching consists of theoretical “frontal” lessons for a total of 20 hours (2 CFUs)
Physiology of the cardiovascular apparatus
Autonomic nervous system and endocrine physiology
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
Oral interview. The exam will last 20-30 minutes. It is based on 2/3 questions concerning the various topics of the program. During the exam the teacher will evaluate the student's ability to report on the topics discussed in the lessons.
Exposure clarity, connectivity, rigor, and communicative ability are valued. The teacher also evaluates the student's ability to perform critical analysis and links between the various contents discussed in the lesson. To overcome the test, it is necessary to obtain a passing grade evaluation for all the questions
