91107 Human Physiology (1)

Course Description

This course provides the introduction cells and its general physiology. The students will learn the functional organization of the human body and control of internal environment- hemostasis, Genetic Control of Protein Synthesis, Cell Function, and Cell Reproduction, Membrane Physiology, Nerve, and Muscle. The students will master the transport of Substances through the Cell Membrane, Membrane Potentials and Action Potentials, Contraction of Skeletal Muscle, Excitation of Skeletal Muscle: Neuromuscular Transmission and Excitation-Contraction Coupling, Contraction and Excitation of Smooth Muscle, and the physiology of the heart.

Learning Objective

  • At the end of the course the student should be able to:
  • 1. Introduce and familiarize students with basic definitions and principles related to physiology as a study of the living body at molecular, cellular as well as the level of intact organism.
  • 2. Introduce the concept of internal environment and homeostasis and to present some Examples of homeostatic mechanisms of the major functional systems and various controls Systems that are utilized by different organs to regulate various physiological functions.
  • 3. Describe the principles and mechanisms of membrane transport.
  • 4. Describe the general organization and functions of hemostasis, Genetic Control of Protein Synthesis, Cell Function, and Cell Reproduction, Membrane Physiology, Nerve, and Muscle
