Course objectives
The aim of the course is to introduce to the students the basic principles governing function in the human body together with its anatomy and the basic concepts of homeostasis and control mechanisms. The course is designed to provide a framework in human physiology for future courses such as Fundamental Neuroscience or Psychotherapy as well as for clinical psychology practice.
Learning outcomes
After completion of the course student will be able to:
- describe basic anatomy of inner organs and organ systems;
- define basic physiological terms;
- describe mutual functional relations between organ systems within healthy human body;
- describe basic control mechanisms with emphasis on the concept of homeostasis
- list basic physiological parameters with values that are used in medical practice.

Teaching methods
Lectures, self-study.
Assessment methods
Human Physiology course is completed by a written test. The students write answers to two open questions from human physiology and one question from human anatomy covering description and scheme of selected organs. Time limit is one hour. Each question is separately assessed with grade A-F. To pass the exam, student must obtain at least grade E in each assessed part of the test.
The examination date will be specified during the last lecture.
Language of instruction
Czech
