Topics include mechanisms of regulation and homeostasis, anatomical, physiological, and pathological features of the cerebral, respiratory, renal, cutaneous and gastrointestinal systems. Basic concepts in pharmacokinetic analysis for drug administration are also discussed. Related and recent research articles will be discussed.
