The Course almS at helping the students to think_ and appreciate the integrative tphysiological  functioning  of  the  living  systems.  The  thrust  of the  course  will  be  to highlight "how are the separate organs and systems themselves  controlled so that no one ystem  over-functions  while others fail to provide their share?" The underlining  feature of the course is to take an holistic approach, whereby integrating the individual functions of all the body's different cells and organs into a functional whole, the human or animal lbody. The  final goal  of the  course  is to  empower  students to use  their  conceptual understanding to solve problems.

Course Contents:
