Cell function is approached as a thermodynamic system exchanging matter and energy with its environment. The main topics include: the physical/chemical laws governing these exchanges, the signals allowing the exchange of information between and within cells, the mechanism of muscular contraction, models of muscular contraction, and the functioning of the immune system.
At the end of this course, the student will understand the principle structures and functions in common to all eukaryotic cells. In addition, the specialized functions of striated muscle cells will be studied in detail. The basic mechanisms of immune system will also be covered.
Human cell physiology, with emphasis on muscle structure, function and models.
