Learning outcomes

The aim is to describe the general organisation of the human body, the processes that make organism work and the control mechanisms under normal conditions. HUMAN ANATOMY The main aim of this course is to give the student the ability to describe, at the basic level and with the appropriate terminology, the structural organization of organs and apparatuses - with special reference to those related to phonation - of the healthy human body, and the relationship between structural organization and function. Once acquired, these skills will allow the student to follow fruitfully the curricular courses requiring knowledge of morphology, and will give the graduate a firm cultural background in her/his professional activity. To achieve the main aim, the student should attend the lessons, be motivated in the personal study, and take advantage from the ad hoc teaching aids (atlases in printed and digital form, which are freely available at the library). PHYSIOLOGY The course aims to give students a global and integrated vision of the human body, organ systems, processes that do work and of control mechanisms of these under normal conditions.
