Physiology

5851. Principles of Physiology   (3 s.h.)

An introduction to cell and organ system physiology, less demanding than Physiology 9801. Recommended for students in other biomedical graduate programs.

9801. Physiology   (3-6 s.h.)

Designed for medical students. A broad survey of the major organ systems. The material is presented in lecture, laboratory, demonstration and conference.

Note: Students must be matriculated in a Temple University graduate program and obtain permission from the course director.

9802. Molecular and Cellular Physiology   (3 s.h.)

This course presents a quantitative biophysical and biochemical description of physiological processes at the level of individual cells. Topics include biophysical analysis of membrane biology (membrane transport energetics, electrophysiology, and maintenance of cellular electrolyte composition) experimental techniques, and communication between cells. A major component of the course is an advanced study of cellular signal transduction mechanisms (second messenger systems, receptor mechanisms, and stimulus-response coupling).

9803. Molecular Basis of Cardivascular Pathophysiology   (2 s.h.)

9804. Pulmonary Physiology   (2 s.h.)

The basic physiology of the lung. Regulation of gas exchange and mechanics of ventilation are emphasized.

9805. Cardiovascular Physiology   (2 s.h.)

In-depth study of the cardiovascular system with emphasis on the interaction of the heart and peripheral vasculature in the cardiovascular control systems.

9806. Endocrine Physiology (1 s.h.)

9807. Microcirculation   (2 s.h.)

An in-depth evaluation of the function of the microvasculature and of research tools used to investigate this segment of the cardiovascular system. Topics covered include blood flow regulation, neuronal control, vascular permeability, endothelial cell function and inflammatory processes.

9810. Physiology Journal Club   (1 s.h.)

Student discussions on current physiological literature, designed to foster critical evaluation of scientific literature. Students obtain experience in presenting experimental data in two formats: formal seminars and informal journal club presentations. Presentations are critiqued by faculty mentors and the course director.

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9813. Preceptorial in Physiology   (1-3 s.h.)

Prerequisite: graduate committee permission.

An intensive study of an area of physiology under the direction of a faculty member.

9814. Experimental Physiology   (2 s.h.)

Students rotate through selected laboratories to help them choose an area for their graduate research.

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9819. Gastrointestinal Function   (1 s.h.)

Review of the current concepts of gastrointestinal motility and secretion. Emphasis on control systems

9820. Physiology Journal Club   (1 s.h.)

Student discussions on current physiological literature, designed to foster critical evaluation of scientific literature. Students obtain experience in presenting experimental data in two formats: formal seminars and informal journal club presentations. Presentations are critiqued by faculty mentors and the course director.

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9821. Advanced Platelet Physiology   (2 s.h.)

Understanding the physiology and pharmacolgy of blood platelets.

9822. Advanced Molecular Physiology   (2 s.h.)

In-depth analysis of' the design of experiments to address fundamental problems in biology at the molecular level and interpretation of the results. Aspects of molecular cloning, regulation of gene expression, structure-function correlations, heterologous expression and transgenic animal models are discussed.

9823.  Molecular Signaling (2 s.h.)

9824.  Physiology of the Immune Response (2 s.h.)

9825Physiology of Organ Systems ( 3 s.h.)

9826Endocrinology of the Cardiovascular System ( 2 s.h.)

9891. Physiology Research   (1 to 9 s.h.)

Research

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9991. Research   (1 to 9 s.h.)

Laboratory research before a graduate student has been elevated to candidacy.

9994. Preliminary Examination Preparation   (1 to 9 s.h.)

Self-directed study for the written portion of the preliminary comprehensive examination \

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9996. Master`s Thesis   (1 to 9 s.h.)

Research leading to the M.S. degree.

Note: This course is for Physiology graduate students only.

9998. Post Candidacy Research   (1 to 9 s.h.)


Prerequisite: Students must be elevated to Ph.D. candidacy by the Graduate School.
