Frequently-Asked Questions

Here are some answers to several of the most common questions regarding the 1B Physiology course:

- There is no plant science in 1B Physiology. It is entirely animal physiology, very roughly two thirds focussed on humans, one third on other mammals. It is therefore less comparative than 1A Physiology of Organisms.

- There is no neurobiology in 1B Physiology – that’s taken as a separate option.

- The level of mathematics/physics needed for this course is no more advanced than that required for 1A PoO.

- There are some exciting practicals associated with this course: they follow a similar format to those run in the Physiological Laboratory in 1A PoO.

- You can take it without having taken 1A PoO.
