This subject comprises three modules:
Physiology: Physiological integration, the interface between tissue cells and the internal environment, biophysics of excitable and contractile tissue, the physiology of mammalian organ-systems: circulatory, respiratory, muscular, renal and digestive; the coordination of bodily functions by hormonal and neural mechanisms. The Physiology lectures will incorporate active interaction between students and lecturers using personal response system (PRS) clickers to answer questions during lectures.
Biochemistry: The thermo-dynamics and homeostasis of living systems and biochemical adaption; the structure, function and metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids; basic principles of gene structure and expression and metabolic disorders with a genetic basis; and structure and function of immuno-globulins.
Topographical Anatomy: The structure and organisation of the head and neck, including development and functional perspectives; practical dissections of the head and neck region; vocationally-relevant clinical anatomy for dentists.
(1) Physiology: Two 45-minute examination at mid-semester, one 2-hour written examination at the end of the semester, a component of ongoing assessment related to practical classes, effective PRS participation and contributions; and tasks related to computer-aided learning activities. (2) Biochemistry: One 2-hour written examination at the end of the semester; assessment of practical work throughout the semester. (3) Topographical Anatomy: One 2-hour written examination at the end of the semester and one 15-minute practical test during the semester. A pass in each of (1), (2) and (3) is required for an overall pass in this subject.
