The course deals with the following themes: functional organisation of living systems, basic concepts of system approach to integrated functions of the human organism, importance of systems offering the use for biomedical technicians and engineers, examples of some experimental and investigative methods and modern technologies used in physiology and medicine. Lectures contain also problem solving.



Laboratory sessions must to be attended and documented by reports submitted in electronic or printed forms.


Written test: multiple choice questions combined with problem solving that takes one hour and consists of 12-15 questions. Only students with 100% presence (only one absence could be replaced by another task) in the laboratory sessions are accepted for the examination. Assessment according to the ECTS criteria.
