Students will develop an understanding of the principles of experimental design appropriate for investigating underlying mechanisms of physiological responses. They will also undertake a research project completed over several weeks, which will require them to formulate a suitable hypothesis to investigate a physiological problem, select and test suitable techniques, design appropriate experimental protocols to test their hypothesis, collect and analyse their data, and write a scientific report on their findings.
The aims are to prepare students for critical analysis and writing of research-based literature reviews and scientific reports in their future studies and career as well as for students to learn some physiological concepts in a practical setting. It also aims to develop research skills for an enquiring graduate and investigative skills for lifelong learning.
