Major Topics/Concepts to be covered: 1. Working definition of Physiology. 2. The inseparability of structure and function. 3. Requirements for life - homeostasis. 4. Principles of regulation. 5. Feedback loops. a. Positive feedback. b. Negative feedback. 6. Systems analysis using feedback loops. II. You will have learned the material when you can: 1. Incorporate the definitions and terms used in these lectures/readings into explanations of how physiological processes are integrated into functional blocks.

Unformatted text preview: 2. Block out the parts of physiological systems probably involved in regulatory control. 3. Decide where regulation is probably needed in living systems and what the most likely form of this regulation should be. III.Sample problems: 1. Locate the sensors for the loops regulating equilibrium and blood glucose. 2. What 'components' would you expect to find in the human body for maintaining your blood calcium concentration constant? 3. You are a bioengineer designing an artificial hand that is to be controlled by picking up signals from the motor cortex of the brain. Draw a simple loop diagram with the minimum components needed to implement this prosthetic. Figures: Lecs1&2 - 2009 file:///C|/WINWORD/COURSES/31109/Lecs1&2-09.htm[8/19/2009 9:07:09 AM]...
