What is anatomy and physiology
Anatomy is the science of the structure of the (human) body and its organs. Shape and structure (of the person) are examined. Physiology is the science that deals with the life processes in the organism, i.e. the functional processes (physical and biochemical). Both disciplines together can explain the functions of human beings.
The lecture imparts basic knowledge about the essential human organ systems and the associated medical terminology. The basic question of the course is:
"How does the human organism work?"
The lecture series (part 2 takes place in the summer semester) is aimed at students who are interested in anatomical and physiological issues. The focus of the lectures is on the physiological processes in the body.
The topics of the first part (winter semester) are:
- Structure of man
- Inner milieu
Building blocks of life - biomolecules
- Nucleotides and nucleic acids
- Cells - structural organization
- Cell membrane and cell organelles
- THEN, RNA and Protein Synthesis
- Cell function - cell cycle and cell division
- Cell connections - tissue
- Transport processes in the body
Neurophysiology - Part 1
- The nervous system - functional and anatomical structure
- Signals in the nervous system - action potentials and stimulus conduction
- Skeletal muscle control
- Autonomic nervous system - sympathetic and parasympathetic
- Cardiovascular system - anatomy
- Cardiac Function - Electrophysiology and Cardiac Mechanics
- Blood vessels - structure and exchange of substances
- Blood - Composition and Function
- Respiratory system - anatomy
- Respiratory mechanics - ventilation and perfusion
- Gas exchange and transport in the blood
