This unit is designed to introduce you to the anatomy and physiology of the reproductive, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and digestive systems of the human body. The regulation of body temperature will also be studied in the unit. The unit will include: (a) the basic facts and concepts relating to the human body`s structural and functional organisation at different levels (cells, tissues, organs, systems) and the interactions between body systems; (b) the range of normal variation in human anatomy and physiology and the relationships between structure and function; and (c) anatomical and physiological terminology which enables students to discuss, orally or in writing, facts, concepts, problems and biomedical issues relating to the structural and functional organisation of the body.
