How to get an A in physiology
If you are struggling with the physiology part of your anatomy and physiology course, an online open enrollment crash course called the “30-Day Challenge: Craft Your plan for learning physiology” taught by a physiologist with 30 years experience helping beginners in the field like yourself could be just what you are looking for. Click here for the details.
The ‘secret sauce’ for understanding human physiology is to discover how each of the 3 master controllers, nervous, endocrine and cardiovascular systems, behave to maintain each anatomic division of the body. There is a logic to how the master controllers work with each other.
Have you ever wondered what people are talking about when they refer to “physiologic cause and effect”? Physiologic cause and effect is a description of how the body’s 3 Master Controllers respond to any part of the system moving away from its normal set point.
Learn how the human body’s 3 Master Controllers coordinate its internal control of exercise, the fight-or-flight response, blood pressure, the structure of your living skeleton and much more. Come away with a strategy for learning the physiology of each body system regardless the order in which the systems are presented.
In “30-Day Challenge: Craft Your Plan for Learning Physiology” you will learn about:
Master Controller #1: Nervous System Partnering with Cardiovascular and Endocrine
- Sensing the Internal & External World
- Somatic Motor Control – Skeletal Muscle
- Autonomic Motor Control – Smooth Muscle
- Brain’s Role in Exercise
- All 3 Master Controllers in Fight-Or-Flight Response
Master Controller #2: Cardiovascular System Partnering with Nervous and Endocrine
- Body’s Liquid Recirculating System
- Heart – a Semi-autonomous Pump
- Nutrient/Waste Exchange
- Control of Blood Pressure
- Control of Blood Volume
Master Controller #3: Endocrine System Partnering with Cardiovascular System & Nervous
- Set Point Maintenance
- Hormones & Receptors
- Endocrine Feedback Loops
- A Case Study – Live Bone
Crafting Your Plan for Tackling the Physiology of Any Anatomic System
The last module of “30-Day Challenge: Craft Your Plans for Learning Physiology” leads you through how to create your own strategy for learning physiology of every anatomic system using the information gained here about how the 3 Master Controllers work in partnership.
