Synopsis: This unit relies on foundation studies in BIO1637, which provided an overview of the normal physiology of some of the systems of the body. It focuses on the human as a subject for a more detailed study of physiology, emphasising the close relationship between structure and function. The course will focus on the mechanisms of body function in relation to the maintenance of a constant internal environment (homeostasis). Body systems discussed include the respiratory, circulatory, urinary and muscular systems, and nutrition. The interrelationships between these systems will be emphasised.
