Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: Fisiologia del sistema nervoso
------------------------
To know the basic anatomy of the central nervous system, the mechanisms of excitability and synaptic transmission, the sensory systems (somatosensory system and pain, visual system, auditory system and balance, chemical senses); to integrate the knowledge of nervous and endocrine mechanism of regulation and signalling.
------------------------
MM: Fisiologia generale
------------------------
The course should provide the student with basic knowledge on the physical prinicples regulating physiological processes and on systems physiology. Students should also be able to apply the acquired physiological knowledge in practical situations in the approach to patients.
