1° semestre dal Oct 1, 2021 al Jan 21, 2022.

Learning outcomes

• Learn the basics of how the human body works as a set of organs and systems; also integrating and completing the knowledge already acquired in physics, chemistry, biochemistry, anatomy and biology. • Acquire a critical approach to knowledge deriving from the application of the scientific method, in particular applied to the analysis of physiological responses to exercise. • Identify the functional purpose of the organs and systems by understanding their role in maintaining the general homeostasis of the human organism. • To acquire the fundamental physiological bases of motor control in humans.


Course Topics
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: concepts of enthalpy, entropy, free energy, biological macromolecules, their classification and function, the main metabolic pathways, enzyme kinetics and mitochondrial enzymes.
• Physics: physics of gases, electro physics, surface tension, Laplace's law, the basics of mechanics, statics and dynamics of fluids, laws of thermodynamics.
• Biology: biophysical characteristics of the cell membrane; structure of the cell and cellular organelles; the genetic code; transcription and translation; protein synthesis; membrane receptors; the intracellular signals and the second messengers (Protein G, AMP cyclic, Calcium, etc.); 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

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

Examination Methods

The exam consists of a multiple-choice test (66 questions in 130 minutes).
The minimum score for the written examination is 36/66. The outcome of the Exam is communicated on the same day online, on the alert page of the course.
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

Type D and Type F activities

I Regolamenti dei corsi di laurea e di laurea magistrale di scienze motorie prevedono che gli studenti possano completare il proprio piano didattico, frequentando oltre agli insegnamenti obbligatori anche delle attività formative a scelta, per approfondire alcuni aspetti tematici o settori di interesse, in coerenza con il proprio percorso formativo.

Le attività formative a scelta di ambito D sono indicate all’interno del piano didattico del corso di studio prescelto, mentre le attività formative di ambito F sono individuate da una apposita commissione di docenti. Queste ultime attività possono essere conferenze, seminari, webinar, altro e vengono acquisite con una valutazione e non con un voto in trentesimi.

Orario lezioni

L'orario è diviso in due file excel distinti (laurea triennale e lauree magistrali),
all'interno, ogni file è composto da più fogli (linguette), ognuna delle quali corrisponde ad un preciso anno/curriculum.

Le lezioni verranno erogate in presenza e verrà inoltre messa a disposizione per gli studenti la videoregistrazione per almeno 1 mese dalla data della lezione stessa.
Le esercitazioni e i laboratori verranno organizzati in sottogruppi dai singoli docenti responsabili dei corsi e la presenza verrà rilevata dal docente il giorno stesso.
E' confermato l'obbligo di frequenza al 70% (in presenza o in videoregistrazione), come da Regolamento dei corsi di laurea e laurea magistrale.

Per accedere alle lezioni che si terranno in presenza è OBBLIGATORIO prenotare il proprio posto in aula, che sarà disponibile a breve.
Tutte le informazioni relative all'utilizzo della app Univr Lezioni, FAQ e guida all'utilizzo sono disponibili al link:

Per quanto riguarda gli orari delle esercitazioni e dei laboratori è necessario consultare l'orario della materia specifica



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).
