Module overview

Human Structure and Function 2 will enable you to build on your learning in HSF1 as it is in a similar format with similar modes of assessment. Again you will be provided with an understanding of essential anatomical, physiological & biochemical concepts that you can apply to problem based scenarios. The topics include the structure and function of the nervous system, muscle, the respiratory system, the renal system and the endocrine system. Aspects of imbalance in these systems will also be considered. You will also explore the principles and applications to the human body of acid base balance, pH, dissociation constants and buffers. Also covered is cell division, the cell cycle, growth and the stages of human development. Finally you will explore the principles of genetics and some of its applications. Further details will be provided on Blackboard.
