Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit:
Anatomophysiology I aims to provide knowledge bases on the functioning of the devices and systems that make up the human organism, namely the tegumentary, musculoskeletal, and nervous systems. The study of this subject should allow the student to know the most important aspects of Anatomophysiology to understand fundamental concepts in the area of Nutrition.
O1 Understand the organization of the human body.
O2 Identify and distinguish the structures that make up the integumentary system.
O3. Understand the general anatomy of the skeletal system.
O4. Distinguish joints, structures and associated movements.
O5. Understand the general anatomy of the muscular system.
O6. Recognize the interaction of the musculoskeletal system.
O7. Understand functioning of the nervous system.
O8. Apply knowledge of the integumentary and musculoskeletal system in interaction with the nervous system.
Organization of the human body. Reference planes. Skeletal System: Description of skeletal bones. Bone Development and Growth. Types of joints. Muscular System: Description of the muscles. Physiology of skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscle. Energy sources. Nervous System: Nervous System Divisions. Synapses Central and Peripheral Nervous System. Cranial nerves. Autonomic Nervous System. Endocrine System: Hormones. Control of hormonal secretion. Mechanisms of action and hormonal receptors. Endocrine glands.
Functional organization of the human body. Homeostatic mechanisms. Cell organization. Growth and remodeling of the bone system. Calcium homeostasis. Membrane physiology. Physiology of the autonomic nervous system.
Organization of the human body, Tegumentary system, Skeletal system, Joints, Muscular system. Nervous System.
Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives:
The construction of the syllabus , with the approach of the morphological and functional aspects of human body , with theoretical , theoretical- practical and practical information of the topics addressed , including the use of appropriate teaching resources, is properly appropriate to the learning process in the discipline of Human Anatomy and Physiology in the curricular fence of course of Nutrition Sciences.
C1 - Movement. It aims to reach O1, O3 to O6.
C2 - Integumentary system. It aims to reach O2, O7 and O8.
C3 - Skeletal system. It aims to reach O3, O6 and O8.
C4 - Joints. Aims to achieve O4, O6 and O8.
C5 - Muscular system. It aims to reach O5, O6 and O8.
C6 - Nervous system. It aims to reach O2, O7 and O8.
Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation):
The teaching methodology relies on the use of didactic resources, such as power point material.
The evaluation of the theoretical and practical components will be done separately, and the student must approve both. The final average is constructed with 80% of the theoretical and theoretical-practical component and 20% of the practical component, calculated with 2 decimal places.
2 theory tests will be carried out in the semester. The student is " approved " the theoretical rated equal to or higher than 10 .
The minimum percentage of compulsory attendance at theoretical classes is 50 %.
PRACTICE: M1Using the e-learning platform to provide learning materials.M2Material available for practical situations.M3 Autonomous research activities.M4Developing content synthesis.M5Video use.Evaluation: 2 written tests (16%) and 4 worksheets (4 %) Approval: average> 9.5 and rating> 7.5 in each.
Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes:
THEORETICAL AND THEORETICAL-PRACTICAL LESSONS The teaching methodology centered on the theoretical , practical and theoretical and practical information of the topics addressed , including the use of appropriate teaching resources, is properly adapted to the process of learning the discipline of Human Anatomy and Physiologyin the curricular fence of course of Nutrition Sciences . PRACTICE M1 - Using the e-learning platform to store educational material that will be made available to the student: all objectives. M2 - The material provided will serve as support for the studies based on practical situations that will be introduced as a teaching-learning tool: O4, O6 and O8. M3 - Autonomous research activities that will be based on research and development issues: O1 to O3, O5 and O7. M4 - Development of activities of synthesis of the basic contents, after oral exposition, where the students will have a proactive involvement; all goals. M5 - Use of demonstration videos of phenomena linked to the studied structures to promote discussion of the inherent physiological foundations: O4, O6 and O8.
