Human Physiology B (CHP 208) builds on Human Biology and follows on from CHP207 giving the students an understanding of the function of the nervous, gastrointestinal and renal systems. The lecture content is complemented by hands on practical sessions which help students to develop their understanding of key concepts. Alongside this knowledge, the unit emphasises the empirical basis of physiology by guiding students through the design, planning, data collection, statistical analysis, interpretation and write-up of a physiology-based experimental project.

Students also gain familiarity with the structure and understanding of primary scientific literature, and develop their oral, written and computer skills in preparing their experimental write-up and an associated research presentation.
