In Homeostasis, you study the physiological systems which underpin the body's regulation of its internal environment and its responses to external threats. This includes nerve function, neuromuscular transmission, muscle, circulation, respiration, excretion, water balance, digestion, absorption, metabolism and thermoregulation. There are related practical classes in experimental physiology and histology (the microscopic structure of tissues).
