Course description

The course covers the fundamental concepts that allow complex organisms to function, with some focus on the human body & other higher organisms. Key concepts include basic cellular transport & signalling mechanisms, principles of biochemistry, neuronal structure & function, motor mechanisms & locomotion, circulation & gas exchange, the endocrine system & developmental biology. Of key importance is the integration of concepts as they apply to the structure and function of different regions of the entire organism.
