Learning outcomes

------------------------
MM: PSICOLOGIA
------------------------
To acquire knowledge on the main cognitive and behavioral processes, with reference to the underlying neural bases.
------------------------
MM: FISIOLOGIA UMANA
------------------------
------------------------ 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.

Syllabus

------------------------
MM: FISIOLOGIA UMANA
------------------------
------------------------ MM: Fisiologia del sistema nervoso ------------------------ Physiology of excitable membranes, synaptic transmission, sensory systems and neuroendocrine integration, on the basis of the anatomical organization of the nervous system. ------------------------ MM: Fisiologia generale ------------------------ 1) Cardiovascular system: vessels, the caridac pump, cardiac electrical activty, the capillary system, extrinsic and intrinsic control mechanisms. 2) Respiratory system: pulmonary hemodynamics; ventilation; gas excghanges. 3) Renal system: filtration, secretion, reabsorbtion, excretion. Concentration and diluition of urine. Micturition. 4) The digestive system: motility, secretion, digestion and absorbtion. 5) Metabolism.
