Curriculum

Origins 2

SMD 8175

Module Director: Kathy Engisch, Ph.D., Neuroscience Cell Biology & Physiology

Module Description: The Origins II module is intended to provide students with the cellular physiology and pharmacology basics needed to understand how organs function, in particular how water and ion concentrations are maintained to support epithelial transport, excitability, and neurotransmission, and the wide repertoire of receptor-mediated signaling that regulates or carries out these functions. The fundamental principles will be revisited as learners more specifically investigate the anatomy, physiology and pharmacology of the autonomic nervous system and of muscle. The course goes beyond normal function to examine pathophysiological mechanisms involved in cancer and tissue injury and repair.
