BIO110_1

Anatomy and Physiology for Biological Chemistry

This is the study programme for 2020/2021.


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 respiratory and cardiovascular system. The digestive system and nutrition. The urinary system. The male and female reproductive systems. Heredity

Learning outcome

After having completed the course the student should have an important basic knowledge regarding human anatomy and physiology, and how this knowledge can be useful when one is considering biomedical issues. Knowledge regarding the organ’s and body’s anatomical structures and their fysiological and biochemical prosesses, so the body can function as one unit.
  • understanding the language of anatomy
  • understanding the structure and function of cells and tissues
  • state the principles of homeostasis within and between tissues, organs and bodyfunctions
  • understand the composition and functions of blood
  • know the structure and function of the heart, cardiovascular and respiratory system
  • know the principles of acid-base balance, immune system and temperature-regulation of the human body
  • have an understanding of the human nervous system and special senses
  • understand the priciples concerning endocrinology
  • understand 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
  • Male and female reproductive anatomy and physiology, human development and heredity
