This course will explore the following questions: How do the major body organs and systems work both alone and in communication with one another? How do we adapt to changing circumstances, control breathing as required, adjust to our nutritional needs, spawn new generations? The course will then go on to investigate the physiology behind the way in which the heart supplies even the furthest extremities with nutrition and oxygen and how gases are extracted from the air we breathe by our lungs. The kidney (fluid balance), the digestive system (nutrition) and the reproductive systems will also be explained in detail. The course provides an overview of what goes on inside your body, and what happens when it goes wrong.
