Learning outcomes To provide students a deep knowledge of the nervous, locomotor, cardio-circulatory and respiratory systems, through an integrated approach to anatomy, physiology, histology and biochemistry of these systems and to develop competences and skills. To develop the ability to work in groups. To develop the ability to synthesis. To develop the ability of critique thinking. To develop oral communication skills. For each system, students should: (1) Describe the anatomy of organs and topographical relationships; (2) Explain the formation of these tissues at the embryo level; (3) Recognize the contribution of different cell types and tissues which constitute these organs to their proper functioning; (4) Explain the operation of each of the organs and their contribution to the functioning of the system as a whole; (5) Characterize the relevant physiological processes
Syllabus Nervous system: external and internal anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system; physiology of sensory, motor, autonomic and higher nervous functions act. Locomotor system: skeletal system (bones and bone tissue, gross anatomy); joints and movement; muscular system (histology, physiology and general anatomy and muscles of the head, trunk, upper and lower limb member). Cardiocirculatory system: function and anatomy heart; histology and electrical heart; classroom practice: anatomical models; fresh heart, ecg, contact with the electrocardiograph; analysis of the electrodes, performing an ecg, adjusting the heart, measurement of blood pressure and pulse. Respiratory system: respiratory function and anatomy, histology and regulation of the respiratory system.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria There will be evaluation with tests in the three blocks through a test at the end of each one (TB1, TB2 and TB3), in which the contents covered in the theoretical, practical and theoretical-practical classes of the respective blocks will be evaluated. In the Block of Nervoso (TB1) there will also be a nini-test, which will count towards 10% of the note of the block. All tests will be performed on a computer and will consist of 40-50 questions. Tests will always be rated between zero and twenty values.
FINAL NOTE = NERVOUS Block (8 points) + LOCOMOTOR Block (4 points) + CARDIOCIRCULATORY, RESPIRATORY block (8 points) = 20 points
Attendance to practical classes: 100%
Attendance to theoretical classes: 50%
Minimum teaching-learning rating: 6
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
