Unit Description

The unit covers the way the physiological systems work together to regulate metabolism, blood pressure and pH, body temperature, and body movement. The response of the body to stress, changing environments and exercise will also be investigated.

Important Information

Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.

Learning Outcomes (LO) Upon completion of this unit, students will be able to:
  1. demonstrate an understanding and describe the role of different physioloical systems;
  2. discuss how these systems work together to maintain homeostasis;
  3. identify and describe how the different systems respond to stress and changing environmental conditions such as temperature and altitude; and
  4. conduct standard experimental procedures associated with the functioning of the endocrine, cardiovasular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, blood and immune systems of the mammalian body and apply this information to solving physiological problems.
