Teaching

  • PM-266 The Cardiovascular System

    Leading on from the first year Human Physiology Module (PM-139), the Cardiovascular Module will introduce and define the fundamental cellular mechanisms that regulate the physiology of healthy cardiovascular function. The Module will describe the processes that allow regular heartbeat and blood vessel function and how perturbations in the systems covered may lead to pathophysiological conditions. There will be an emphasis on experimental approaches used to study the cardiovascular mechanisms described.

  • PM-266C Y System Gardiofasgwlaidd

    Gan adeiladu ar fodiwl y flwyddyn gyntaf, Ffisioleg Ddynol (PM-139), bydd y modiwl ar y System Gardiofasgwlaidd yn cyflwyno ac yn diffinio'r mecanweithiau cellol sylfaenol sy'n rheoli ffisioleg gweithrediad system gardiofasgwlaidd iach. Bydd y modiwl yn disgrifio'r prosesau sy'n gyfrifol am guriad calon rheolaidd a gweithrediad y pibellau gwaed, a sut gall newidiadau yn y systemau dan sylw arwain at gyflyrau pathoffisiolegol. Bydd pwyslais ar y dulliau arbrofol a ddefnyddir i astudio'r mecanweithiau cardiofasgwlaidd a ddisgrifiwyd
