Learning outcomes This curricular unit intends to provide the student with the knowledge needed to understand how the industrial electronics systems work. At the end of the course students should be able to understand and discuss the phenomena of electric conduction in cell tissues, and the electrical signals present in biological organisms, with emphasis on signals present in the human body.
Syllabus Transport of electrical charge across the cell membrane. Resting membrane potential and action potential. Conduction on the nerve. Synapse. Cardiac electrical activity. Potential in cardiac muscle. ECG simulation. Biological effects of electricity. Biological effects of radiation. Biological effects of magnetic field. Ultrasound, basis and applications. Doppler and echo. Laser and its applications. Principles of EMG. Principles of EEG.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria The teaching activities are based on orientation of individual works of literature review, which will be presented and discussed by the group.
Continuous assessment: To obtain approval in continuous evaluation and to be admitted to the final exam, students must attend more than 80% of classes with presentation of papers. In addition, the degree of continuous assessment is attributed through the combined evaluation of three oral presentations and a written test scheduled for January 9 at 9:00 am
NFreq = 0.25xNAP1 + 0.25xNAP2 + 0.25xNAP3 + 0.25xNPE.
The final mark is obtained according to: NF = Greater {NE; NFreq}.
NFreq - Continuous evaluation grade or frequency grade
NAP1 - Grade obtained in the first presentation.
NAP2 - Grade obtained in the second presentation.
NAP3 - Grade obtained in the third presentation.
NPE - Grade obtained in the written test.
NF - Final grade.
NE - Grade obtained in the written exam.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
