This course reviews the physiology of humans, placing particular emphasis on:
- Muscular contraction
- Kidney function
The approaches taken include those based on organ systems and a comparative approach describing similar organ systems in different taxa and some consideration of how physiological systems are adjusted to function throughout the wide range of environments in which animals live.
Note: Graduate students attend joint classes with undergraduates but are assessed separately.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
1. Describe the physiology of major organs and organ systems in humans and other mammals
2. Understand and interpret the interplay between different organ systems and cellular responses to environmental change
3. Apply experimental design skills to understanding poplulation responses and interpreting quantitative data
4. Demonstrate increased preparedness for the GAMSAT
Assessment will be based on (percentages indicative only, may change):
- Lab quizzes and/or short essays (15%; LO 1)
- Lab report (15%; LO 2, 3)
- Mid-term and final examinations (70%; LO 1, 2)
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Three lectures per week and five three-hour laboratory sessions
