VET10160 Cell Biology & Homeostasis
Academic Year 2021/2022
This module focuses on essential principles of the physiology of communication and integrated functions of excitable cells with reference to appropriate veterinary examples. The module covers:
i) homeostatic principles
ii) membrane potential, ion channels, action potential
iii) excitable cells
iv) synaptic transmission, synaptic potentials, and cellular integration
v) introduction to veterinary immunology as an example of a homeostatic network
On completion of this module students should be able to:
i) Explain how homeostasis and control systems along with communication represent two of the major themes in veterinary physiology;
ii) Recognise and describe how functional control systems require efficient communication using a combination of chemical and electrical signals;
iii) Describe the basis of cell excitability (nerve, muscle, other) – using clinical examples of contributions to homeostasis;
iv) Describe how the mammalian immune system functions homeostatically with respect to environmental antigens, including pathogens.
