3. Course contents *

In biology and physiology, nature made specifically use of underlying physical laws and properties. In the course cellular physiology the following cellular processes are studied from this background:

Membrane transport - resting potential - action potential - cellular excitability

Muscle contraction, mechanics and excitation-contraction coupling

Neuronal transmission and basic neurophysiology

Sensory systems and their information processing

Control theory, reflexes and feedback systems
