Module contents
The lecture covers topics such as cell physiology, sensory physiology, neurophysiology, functions of the vegetative system, blood physiology/immune response, blood cycle, respiration and digestion. Emphasis will be on human physiology. In the following lab exercises, students get the opportunity to perform physiological experiments linking to topics from the lecture. By performing experiments on themselves and computer simulations students will gain insight into the underlying physiological principles.
