10 Credits AUTUMN

Aims/Description: This module will use practical techniques that will enable students to develop a more thorough understanding of physiological systems and how they can be modulated by pharmacological treatments. The practical sessions will range from the exploration of human physiology, where the students themselves are the subjects, through to taking physiological measurements and making pharmacological interventions in an in-vivo model, and finally to investigating physiological processes at the cellular level. This wide range of practical classes will give students an appreciation of physiology and how it is studied from the whole body down to a single cell.

Restrictions on availability: This module is restricted to students visiting the University of Sheffield.
