Physiology explains the normal operation of the human body at all levels of integration, from the subcellular to the whole
organism. The first semestr discusses the origin of the sciences of physiology and introduces the concept of homeostasis in
physiological systems. It also presents transport across cell membranes, the establishment of an electrical resting potential,
principles of neurotransmission, physiology of muscles, special senses, and the functional interconnection of the blood and
cardiovascular system. Practical exercises allow students to verify important physiological phenomena

Second semestr covers the respiratory, gastrointestinal, and renal physiology, metabolism and regulation of body
temperature, physiology of endocrine glands including reproductive physiology. Neural nad hormonal mechanisms are
integral to this coverage. It also presents principles of neural sciences - perception, control of movement, the autonomic
nervous system, the homeostatic role of the central nervous system, and the higher functions of the brain including principles
of behavior, emotion, motivation, thought, language, learning, and memory. Integrative approach

Requirements to the exam
Last update: doc. MUDr. Jitka Švíglerová, Ph.D. (21.05.2018)

Credit – Requirements

·         The full attendance of the practical exercises (the absence due to serious reasons could be substituted at the end of the appropriate part of the practical exercises.

·         Pass all credit tests.

·         Protocols of the practical exercises checked and signed by the appropriate assistant professor.


Final Examination - Requirements

The applicants are required to have both semester credits (in the case of pre-term examination the mean mark from all computer credit tests during the year up to 2.0).

The physiology examination consists of two parts: the final computer test and the oral examination.

The computer test consists of 54 true/false questions. The student will receive one point for each correct answer. The pass mark is 38 points. The test duration is 30 minutes. If student passes the test successfully, he/she advances automatically to the consequent oral exam. If student fails, he/she does not lose the exam term and he/she can register for the next free term.

In the oral exam the student will answer 4 questions, one of them being dedicated to the practical exercises. All the questions are published in the syllabus (curriculum) with titles underlined. If student fails, he/she can register for the next free term. The successful final computer test will not be repeated.
