Period

I SEMESTRE dal Oct 1, 2018 al Jan 25, 2019.

Learning outcomes

• Learning the basic functions of the human body intended as a set of organs and systems by integrating and complementing the existing knowledge of physics, chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and biology.
• Learning how to apply the scientific method to the analysis of physiological responses to stresses such as physical exercise.
• Identifying the functional purpose of the physiological systems understanding their role in the maintenance of homeostasis of human organism.
• Acquire the fundamental physiological basis of motor control in humans, including the physiology of the sense organs.

Program

Preliminary general knowledge
In order to understand the course of Physiology, you must have first assimilated the basics of Chemistry, Physics, Biochemistry and Mathematics, in particular:
• Chemistry: the concept of pH, molarity, colligative properties of solutions, osmolality and osmotic pressure, diffusion.
• Biochemistry: biological macromolecules, their classification and function, the main metabolic pathways, enzyme kinetics and mitochondrial enzymes.
• Physics: physics of gases, electrology, surface tension, Laplace's law, the basics of mechanics, statics and dynamics of fluids, laws of thermodynamics.
• Biology: biophysical characteristics of the cell membrane; transport mechanisms through the membrane; mechanisms of cell regeneration.
• Mathematics: the concept of the logarithm, the concept of function and axes, functions, linear, power, exponential; methods of manipulation of logarithms, the concepts of derivative and integral; units of the international system.

Topics
1. Principles of general physiology and biophysics of the cell
2. Sensory systems
3. Physiology and biomechanics of striated muscle
4. Motor control (spinal and supraspinal mechanisms)
5. The autonomic nervous system
6. Physico-chemical characteristics of the blood; coagulation and hemostasis
7. Cardiovascular physiology: heart and circulation Regulation of acid-base

Examination Methods

The exam consists of a multiple-choice test (80 questions in 150 minutes) . The minimum score for the written examination is 48/80. The outcome of the Exam is communicated on the same day online, on the alert page of the Department of Neuroscience, Biomedicine and Movement: http://www.dsnm.univr.it/?ent=avviso&dest=200 Candidates must notify the vote within a maximum time of 7 days. In the absence of communication, the corresponding evaluation in thirtieths will be automatically recorded.

Internships

Internships are aimed at enabling students to gain direct knowledge of the world of work and to acquire specific professional skills.

Internships are carried out under the responsibility of an individual lecturer, and can be carried out in professional firms, public administration bodies and companies recognised by the University of Verona.

Any CFU credits gained by doing internships will be recognised and recorded by the University in accordance with the relevant University regulations in force (Regolamento d’Ateneo per il riconoscimento dei crediti maturati negli stage universitari).

For further information on internships, please go to: https://www.univr.it/it/i-nostri-servizi/stage-e-tirocini.
