  • Overview

    Educational Aims:
    1.to give students the opportunity to design a small laboratory project in the field of human physiology,
    2.to enable students to reinforce knowledge and skills acquired during the pre-requisite partner module, Experimental Physiology A,
    3.to obtain from this project experimental data sufficient in both quantity and quality to allow statistical analysis.

    Learning Outcomes:
    At the end of the module, students should have learned:
    1. an enhanced appreciation of the principles of experimental design, including how to identify and justify appropriate internal controls, and how to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the permitted methods of investigation
    2. how to work effectively within a group while taking responsibility for their own record keeping and learning
    3. an enhanced appreciation of the additional difficulties of designing studies involving human subjects
    4. practical experience of simple statistical analysis of results
    5. experience in keeping good experimental records and composing a dissertation describing the results of the study
