Syllabus

Unit 1

The principles and logics of cellular to systemic integration using murburn concept: simple multicellular life to more complex beings with hormonal/neuronal controls, etc.

Unit 2

Molecular to macroscopic electrochemical & electromechanical outcomes: bone-muscles & neurophysiology.

Unit 3

Complex human systems: circulatory/lymphatic, endocrine, reproductive, excretory, respiratory, digestive, etc.

Unit 4

Brain and central nervous system: cybernetics

Course Objectives and Outcomes

Course Objectives:

  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of the principles and logics governing cellular to systemic integration in multicellular organisms with a focus on hormonal and neuronal controls.
  • Explore the molecular to macroscopic electrochemical and electromechanical outcomes, specifically in the context of bone-muscle interactions and neurophysiology.
  • Understand the intricacies of complex human physiological systems, including circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, reproductive, excretory, respiratory, and digestive systems.
  •   Gain insight into the functioning of the brain and central nervous system, exploring the principles of cybernetics and their role in systemic physiology.

Course Outcomes:

After completing this course, students should be able to
CO1: Analyze the integration of cellular processes into systemic functions, considering
the influence of hormonal and neuronal controls.
CO2: Correlate molecular-level electrochemical and electromechanical outcomes with macroscopic
physiological phenomena, particularly in bone-muscle interactions and neurophysiology.
C03: Describe the functioning of complex human physiological systems, including
circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, reproductive, excretory, respiratory, and digestive systems.
CO4: Analyze the principles of cybernetics and their application in understanding the brain and
central nervous system’s role in regulating physiological processes.
