About this Unit
This unit introduces the core concepts and terminology necessary to provide a basic understanding of the physiological responses of the human body using relevant examples. These include the processes of homeostasis, cell-cell interactions and the physical and chemical transport processes that are required to carry out integrated functions. Students will explore these key physiological concepts through practical hands-on experiments and in interactive group work in prac and tutorial classes, respectively. The unit provides the foundation to study the physiology of human organ systems.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Students will be required for 4 × 2 hr practicals at all Campbelltown, Parramatta & Hawksbury campuses (Physiology labs). All students are required to have a lab coat, safety glasses and to complete an online WHS induction quiz.
