BIO110_1

Anatomy and Physiology for Biological Chemistry

This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


The language of anatomy. The importance of a stable homeostatic environment. Cells, structure and function. Histology. The nervous system. The special senses. The endocrine system and homeostasis. The skeletal and muscular systems. The cardiovascular system. The urinary system. The reproductive system.

Learning outcome

After having completed the course the student should be able to:
  • understand the language of anatomy
  • understand the structure and function of cells and tissues
  • state the principles of homeostasis within and between tissues, organs and the bodyfunctions
  • understand the importance of blood
  • know the structure and function of the heart and ciculatory system
  • know the principles of immunology and temperature-regulation of the human body
  • give a description of the human nervous system and special senses
  • understand the priciples concerning
  • know the principles of endocrinology
  • have an understanding of the principles concerning digestion, nutrition and the urinary system
  • know the structure and function of bones, joints, skeletal and musculary system
  • give a description of the human organs

After having completed the course successfully, the student will have knowledge that can be applied in further biomedical studies and research projects.
