    Education Aims:  This module introduces the physiology and pharmacology of the central nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory and urinary systems in man, including aspects of drug action.

    Learning Outcomes:  By attending this module you should:

  • Gain a better understanding of how the autonomic and central nervous systems control the internal environment, and regulate normal behaviour in man.
  • Understand the basic principles of control of skeletal muscle function, the regulation of blood pressure, breathing and hydration in normal healthy man, and provide examples of dysfunction in disease and how these can be treated by drugs.
  • Be able to associate related information provided by different components of the module to gain an added understanding of the integrated manner in which the human body functions.
