This module provides an introduction to major non-cardiovascular/respiratory physiological systems involved in human homeostasis for students reading for the degree in Biomedical Science. Topics covered will include: microanatomy and histology of the major human tissues; feedback control, temperature regulation, cell exchange processes; function and integration of nervous, muscle, gastrointestinal, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems. The module will describe some of the major human physiological diseases, disorders and dysfunctions of these systems, and some parasitic diseases.
