HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY 1
Credit points: 15
In this subject you gain knowledge in systems physiology, including the nervous system, muscle tissue, endocrinology and the gastrointestinal system. We will discuss how the nervous system controls body systems, focusing on the electrical transmission of information and how this is modulated. Our focus then shifts to muscle tissue and the mechanisms involved in skeletal muscle contraction, force generation and fatigue. You will gain a detailed understanding of the endocrine system and how it is responsible for controlling many of our bodies daily functions and metabolism. The semester concludes focusing on the gastrointestinal systems where you will gain an understanding of the mechanisms surrounding food digestion and nutrient absorption. The detailed online resources in this subject will be supported by a comprehensive program of enquiry based workshops. Practical classes will allow you to undertake experiments to enhance your learning experience, whilst building on communication skills. The completion of an online employability module will give you the opportunity to build and reflect on experiences that will prepare you for life beyond university.
