About this Unit
From 2020 this unit replaces 300851 - Advanced Physiology. Physiology is the study of the way in which a living organism and its bodily parts function. This unit will examine integrative aspects of physiological control mechanisms comprising multiple organ systems and mechanisms of adaptation to environmental factors. It will focus on regulatory function of ion channels, neurophysiology, sensory physiology, motor control, metabolism, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Students will have the opportunity to independently research, in depth, an area of physiology pertinent to their interest.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Laboratory coat, safety goggles, enclosed footwear.
