Course Description

This course is aimed to understand the basis of various physiological functions of the body from the cell as the smallest functional component of the body to the function of various organs, and systems.  This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the function & regulation of the human body and physiological integration of the organ systems to maintain homeostasis.  Course content will include Neural & Hormonal homeostatic control mechanisms, as well as study of the Musculoskeletal, Circulatory, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, Immune, Reproductive, and Endocrine Systems.


The primary goal of this course is to offer an in-depth presentation of the function of the major organs and organ systems of the human body. It is expected that the student understand the unique role of each organ and organ system in maintaining health.  Students should be able to describe the functions of the distinctive cells that comprise each major organ and when appropriate define the role of physiological functional units.  Case studies will be provided to enhance the integration of material presented in class.

Upon completion of this course the student should be knowledgeable in the following areas of bodily function:

  1. Integration of the organ systems to maintain constancy of the internal environment
  2. Narrate the contribution of each organ system to the maintenance of homeostasis.
  3. Explain the normal functioning of all the organ systems of the body and their interactions.
  4. Describe the physiological response and adaptations to environmental stresses, infectious organisms, and toxins.
  5. Role of the Autonomic Nervous System in regulating organ function
  6. Elucidate the physiological aspects of normal growth and development.

  7. Student should be able to know

- The basic aspects of physiology and body functions

- The function of cell organelles, and cell specialization

- The functional division of the Nervous System (NS)

- The function of NS and the exerted control on key body organs

- The human endoskeleton, movement and locomotion.

- The chemical messengers and Endocrine system

- The cardiovascular system and Hepatic circulation.

- The neural control of blood volume and pressure

- The body fluid compartments and the blood as a tissue and clotting.

- The renal system and Homeostasis

- The respiratory system and gas exchanges

- The respiratory-renal adjustment of acid base

- The digestive system

- The Pancreatic-Hepatic functions

- The reproductive system

- The ovarian, Hormonal and menstrual cycles

  1. Skills: At the end of the course the student will be able to

o Perform experiments designed either primarily for the study of physiological phenomena or for assessment of function.

o Analyze and interpret experimental/investigative data critically.

o Distinguish between normal and abnormal data derived as a result of tests which he has performed and observed in the laboratory.

Teaching Format

1. Formal lectures.

2. Tutorial and practical sessions.

The majority of class lectures will be presented on the chalkboard; occasionally power point presentations will be utilized.  Please check the course web site and email notifications from Dr. Alaa-Eldin for updates on additional sessions. The course site web will contain lecture notes and/or topic outlines.
