Physiology is the scientific discipline that deals with process or the functions of the living things. It also examines how the parts of the body work and the ways in which they cooperate together to maintain life and health of the individual.

One outstanding quality of physiology is that it integrates the individual functions of all the body’s different cells and organs into a functional whole, the human or animal body. Indeed, life in the human being relies upon this total function, not on functions of the single parts in isolation from the others.

Course Curriculum

HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY FOR NURSES IIFREE 03:50:00
This unit dwells in the structural organization of the brain,the anatomical divisions of the cerebrum and their functions, the lateralization and language function of the cerebral cortex, the functions of the various parts of the encephalon, the neural basis for the control of emotions, motivation and memory, describe the function of the midbrain,identify the structures of the hindbrain and explain their functions and explain the function of the Reticular formation.

THE SPINAL CORD, CRANIAL NERVES AND SPINAL NERVESFREE 04:10:00
This unit is about the spinal cord which is the neuronal link between the brain and spinal cord which serves as the integrative centre for spinal reflexes.
THE SPINAL CORD, CRANIAL NERVES AND SPINAL NERVES10, 00:00
NEURONS AND NEURONAL TRANSMISSION 04:10:00
This unit is about Neurons, Neurons are highly specialized cells that transmit impulses within animals to cause a change in a target cell such as a muscle effector cell or glandular cell. Together with neuroglial (glial) cells make up the nervous system. The neuron is the integral element of our five senses and other physical, regulatory and mental faculties including memory and consciousness.
NEURONS AND NEURONAL TRANSMISSION10, 00:00
THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM 03:50:00
This unit consists the structures and pathways of the autonomic system, the neural control of involuntary effectors, the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the autonomic nervous system, the functions of the autonomic nervous system, the neurotransmitters in the autonomic nervous system and explain their actions, the responses to adrenergic and cholinergic stimulation, and the control of autonomic nervous system by higher brain centres of the somatic nervous system.
THE AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM10, 00:00
INTRODUCTION TO RECEPTOR 04:10:00
This unit will focus on the characteristics of these receptors and the way they generate impulses in afferent neurons. It will also briefly describe the various general sensations.

SENSORY PHYSIOLOGY I 04:10:00
This unit discusses the physiology of gustation and olfaction with emphasis on their neurological control.

THE EAR AND HEARING 04:10:00
This unit is about the various structures that participate in hearing, explain the basic characteristics of sound waves, explain the ionic basis of Impulse Transmission, describe the neural auditory pathway and explain some hearing impairments.
THE EAR AND HEARING10, 00:00
VESTIBULAR APPARATUS AND EQUILIBRIUM 03:00:00
This unit examine the functions of the vestibular apparatus in the maintenance of equilibrium.
VESTIBULAR APPARATUS AND EQUILIBRIUM10, 00:00
THE EYES AND VISION AND THE RETINA AND NEURAL PROCESSING OF VISUAL INFORMATION 04:10:00
This unit dwells in the structures that make up the eye as well as explain basic concepts in light and vision, the process of refraction ,discuss accommodation as one of the mechanisms of image formation , the visual acuity ,highlight some common defects of image formation and visual acuity and the retina and neural processing of visual information which is a photo-chemical reactions that take place in the rods and cones and other layers of the retina to generate impulses, as well as the way impulses are channeled and interpreted by the visual components of the nervous system.

SKELETAL AND MUSCULAR SYSTEM 04:10:00
This unit discusses the basic characteristics, structure and functions of the bone tissue, as well as discuss in detail the metabolism of calcium and bone physiology.
SKELETAL AND MUSCULAR SYSTEM10, 00:00
PHYSIOLOGY OF MUSCULAR TISSUES 05:00:00
The general function of the muscle tissue is movement, posture and heat production. In this unit we have looked at the functions of specific muscle tissues in relation to their specific type, structure and characteristics.
