This unit will examine integrative aspects of physiological control mechanisms comprising multiple organ systems and mechanisms ofadaptation to environmental factors. It will focus on regulatory function of ion channels, neurophysiology, sensoryphysiology, motor control, metabolism, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Students will have the opportunityto independently research, in depth, an area of physiology pertinent to their interest.1.2 What is Expected of YouStudy LoadA student is expected to study an hour per credit point a week. For example a 10 credit point Unit would require 10hours of study per week. This time includes the time spent within classes during lectures, tutorials or practicals.AttendanceListening to pre-recorded lectures, and attending the Lecture tutorial review sessions for each topic is stronglyrecommended to promote student engagement with the teaching team. Attendance at practical laboratory classesare strongly recommended to promote development of skills in recording physiological measurements. Practicalcontent is assessed in post-prac quizzes.Online Learning RequirementsUnit materials will be made available on the Unit’s vUWS (E-Learning) site (https://vuws.westernsydney.edu.au/).You are expected to consult vUWS at least twice a week, as all Unit announcements will be made via vUWS. Teachingand learning materials will be regularly updated and posted online by the teaching team.Special RequirementsEssential Equipment:Laboratory coat, safety goggles, enclosed footwear.Legislative Pre-Requisites:Not ApplicablePolicies Related to Teaching and LearningThe University has a number of policies that relate to teaching and learning. Important policies affecting studentsinclude:– Assessment Policy– Bullying Prevention Policy and– Guidelines– Enrolment Policy– Examinations Policy– Review of Grade Policy– Sexual Harassment Prevention Policy– Special Consideration Policy– Student Misconduct Rule– Teaching and Learning – Fundamental Code2– Student Code of ConductAcademic Integrity and Student Misconduct RuleIn submitting assessments, it is essential that you are familiar with the policies listed above and that you understandthe principles of academic integrity. You are expected to act honestly and ethically in the production of all academicwork and assessment tasks, submit work that is your own and acknowledge any contribution to your work made byothers.Important information about academic integrity, including advice to students is available at https://www.westernsydney.edu.au/studysmart/home/academic_integrity_and_plagiarism. It is your responsibility to familiarise yourself withthese principles and apply them to all work submitted to the University as your own.When you submit an assignment or product, you will declare that no part has been: copied from any other student’s work or from any other source except where due acknowledgement is made in the assignment; submitted byyou in another (previous or current) assessment, except where appropriately referenced, and with prior permissionfrom the Unit Coordinator; written/produced for you by any other person except where collaboration has been authorised by the Unit Coordinator.The Student Misconduct Rule applies to all students of Western Sydney University and makes it an offence forany student to engage in academic, research or general misconduct as defned in the Rule.The University considers plagiarism, cheating and collusion as instances of academic misconduct. The Universityalso considers submitting falsifed documentation in support of applications for special consideration, including sittingof deferred examinations, as instances of general misconduct. You should be aware that changes were made to theStudent Misconduct Rule commencing 1 January 2020 that provide for minimum sanctions that apply to certainconduct, including the provision of falsifed documentation to the University.You are strongly advised to read the Student Misconduct Rule and the Inappropriate Behaviour Guidelines at thecommencement of each session to familiarise yourself with this process and the expectations of the University inrelation to work submitted for assessment.1.3 Changes to Unit as a Result of Past Student FeedbackThe University values student feedback in order to improve the quality of its educational programs. The feedbackprovided helps us improve teaching methods and Units of study. The survey results inform Unit content and design,learning guides, teaching methods, assessment processes and teaching materials.You are welcome to provide feedback that is related to the teaching of this Unit. At the end of the semester you willbe given the opportunity to complete a Student Feedback on Unit (SFU) questionnaire to assess the Unit. You mayalso have the opportunity to complete a Student Feedback on Teaching (SFT) questionnaire to provide feedback forindividual teaching staff.As a result of student feedback, the following changes and improvements to this subject have recently been made:– Practical 3 has been given a live Zoom help time– Lecture tutorials have been added to allow for greater student-teaching team interaction32 Assessment Information2.1 Unit Learning Outcomes Outcome1Describe the major (principle) ion channels present in organisms, and evaluate their functional signifcance inregulating body function under normal and pathological conditions (e.g. channelopathies).2Explain the function of sensory organs, neural encoding, processing and analysis of sensory information,particularly in the context of motor control and perception.3Examine how sensorimotor mechanisms are implemented in motor control strategies.4Evaluate the interaction between organ systems in achieving optimal regulation of the body function duringexercise.5Analyse the role of homeostasis in adaptation to a wide range of living conditions, food sources and extremeenvironments.6Create, deliver, and peer evaluate oral presentations competently. 2.2 Approach to LearningIn the second half of the semester, this capstone unit gives students the opportunity to independently researchone area of interest and present/record a short oral presentation. Practical lab classes are designed to deepen theunderstanding of the fve topic areas through hands-on activities and analysis of experimental data.42.3 Contribution to Course Learning Outcomes3673: Bachelor of Medical Science Program Learning OutcomesULO 1ULO 2ULO 3ULO 4ULO 5ULO 61.

Feedback is any written or spoken response made in relation to academic work such as an assessmenttask, a performance or product. It can be given to you by a teacher, an external assessor or student peer, and maybe given individually or to a group of students. As a Western Sydney University student, it is your responsibility toseek out and act on feedback that is provided to you as a resource to further your learning.Feedback will be provided on your draft submission of the Independent Investigation Topics, if they were submittedon time. Feedback may be given in in various formats via written comments, or via zoom sessions in verbal form andmay be given individually or as general group feedback or a combination of both. The practical lab class quiz marksand the intra-session exam marks will be released on vUWS 2-3 weeks after they were completed and should be usedas feedback to gauge the level of understanding of the practical material and the lecture content.72.5 Assessment Details2.5.1 Independent Investigation Topic: Oral presentation with assessed draft submission Weight:20%Type of Collaboration:IndividualDue:Draft slides due weeks 4-8 (depending on chosen topic). Final presentation recordingdue Weeks 10-14 (depending on chosen topic).Submission:Online; need to submit draft submission slides, and fnal presentation slides withrecorded presentationFormat:The student will select a research question with an accompanying published researchstudy, instructions of how to select your research question will be covered in the frstlecture and information also placed on vUWS. This research question will then be thebasis for an 8 to 10-minute oral presentation. Once you have signed up for your researchquestion you will submit the draft presentation slides weeks 4-8, depending on whichtopic was selected. Please note the draft is only the slides for a presentation, and not arecorded presentation. Depending on which topic you chose, in weeks 10-14, you willsubmit an electronic recording of your IIT presentation and the PowerPoint slides.Details of the due dates for the recordings are included below, as are specifc instructionsfor fle submission. Please note: fles submitted in the wrong format may not beaccepted, so it is important you follow the submission instructions as listed in thislearning guide properly.Length:Oral presentation: 10 minutesCurriculum Mode:Presentation The oral presentation has some flexibility in the titles used, but as a template, the following are useful sections toinclude. There is no slide limit, but the presentation should not exceed 10 minutes. As a good rule of thumb, oneslide per 1-2 minutes is a reasonable guideline. Remember that a research article is assigned to each research topic,so be sure that that research article is your primary source of answering the research question.1. Research Question posed2. BackgroundExplain the specifc relevant background necessary for the question/researchExplain why the research question or aim of the study is important.3. FindingsWhat was the answer for your research question in detail?4. Physiological mechanisms and critical appraisalWhy do the fndings of your research question occur with physiological detail? Is there other literature which confrmsor contrasts your fndings, and are there any shortcoming or weaknesses in the literature approaching this researchquestion.5. References (not counted in the fnal word count)You should strive to have 4 references in WSU Harvard style.Oral presentation: maximum of 10 minutes per presentation. Please note, students should aim for an oral presentation8of 8-9 minutes’ duration. Remember: your presentation should strike a balance between being accessible to thosewithout knowledge in the specifc research area, but still contain detailed and mechanistic physiological content. Oneway to achieve this is to ensure a proper introduction is given to appropriately contextualise the content.Draft submissionPlease note that draft PowerPoint slides only (not audio recordings), are due three weeks after the lecture for thetopic has been given (week 4-8 depending on the topic), are required to be submitted and are weighted at 5% ofyour fnal mark. The due dates are as follows:Exercise Physiology IITs draft slides due Thursday, 25/3 at 11:59pm (week 4)Exercise Metabolism IITs draft slides due Thursday, 1/4 at 11:59pm (week 5)Electrophysiology IITs draft slides due Thursday, 8/4 at 11:59pm (week 6)Sensory Physiology IITs draft slides due Thursday, 15/4 at 11:59pm (week 7)Motor Physiology IITs draft slides due Thursday, 22/4 at 11:59pm (week 8)Due date for fnal submission:Individual depending on topic.

The IIT presentations which are uploaded are selected at randomfrom the topics to be uploaded, and are not any reflection on the quality of the presentations (i.e. if your presentationwas not uploaded, this does not mean there were any issues or problems with your presentation or submission).What you will need to submit for the IIT assessment draft (5%)You will need to submit the powerpoint slides within the ”IIT assessment submission (20%)” link in the menu on theleft of your screen:1) The powerpoint slides of your presentation, via a Turnitin link. No audio or video, just the powerpoint slides in apowerpoint fle. Do not forget about the assignment cover sheetWhat you will need to submit for the IIT assessment (15%)You will need to submit two fles, within the ”IIT assessment submission (20%)” link in the menu on the left of yourscreen:1) The recording of your presentation. Please just have audio over your powerpoint presentation; do not flm yourself.Please submit an MP4; this is a common format across many user systems and programs and has minimal issueswith uploading. More info about how to do a recording will be in the following section.2) The powerpoint slides of your presentation, via a Turnitin link. No audio or video, just the powerpoint slides in apowerpoint fle with the assignment cover sheet.Please include an assignment coversheet for both the draft and fnal slide submissions.How to create a recordingIn Zoom:Please record your presentation in Zoom, it is easy to do and produces a compact MP4 fle. Some programs produce9very large video fles, and this can be problematic to upload to vUWS. To record a presentation in Zoom, start ameeting with only yourself without the video. You can then share the screen to your presentation, and then recordyour presentation. Once you end the meeting, the MP4 will be created, be sure to check that it worked okay. I alwaysrecommend doing a test run as well to make sure the audio and video is working well.

You mustkeep a copy of all assignments submitted for marking.Turnitin– The Turnitin plagiarism prevention system may be used within this Unit. Turnitin is accessed via logging intovUWS for the Unit. If Turnitin is being used with this Unit, this means that your assignments have to besubmitted through the Turnitin system. Turnitin from iParadigms is a web-based text-matching software thatidentifes and reports on similarities between documents. It is also widely utilised as a tool to improve academicwriting skills. Turnitin compares electronically submitted papers against the following:– Current and archived web: Turnitin currently contains over 24 billion web pages including archived pages– Student papers: including Western Sydney University student submissions since 2007– Scholarly literature: Turnitin has partnered with leading content publishers, including library databases,text-book publishers, digital reference collections and subscription-based publications (e.g. Gale, Proquest, Emerald and Sage)– Turnitin is used by over 30 universities in Australia and is increasingly seen as an industry standard. It isan important tool to assist students with their academic writing by promoting awareness of plagiarism.Bysubmitting your assignment to Turnitin you will be certifying that:– I hold a copy of this assignment if the original is lost or damaged– No part of this assignment has been copied from any other student’s work or from any other source exceptwhere due acknowledgement is made in the assignment– No part of the assignment has been written for me by any other person/s– I have complied with the specifed word length for this assignment– I am aware that this work may be reproduced and submitted to plagiarism detection software programs forthe purpose of detecting possible plagiarism (which may retain a copy on its database for future plagiarismchecking).Self-Plagiarising– You are to ensure that no part of any submitted assignment for this Unit or product has been submitted byyourself in another (previous or current) assessment from any Unit, except where appropriately referenced, andwith prior permission from the Lecturer/Tutor/Unit Coordinator of this Unit.Late Submission– If you submit a late assessment, without receiving approval for an extension of time, (see next item), you willbe penalised by 10% per day for up to 10 days. In other words, marks equal to 10% of the assignment’s weightwill be deducted from the mark awarded.– For example, if the highest mark possible is 50, 5 marks will be deducted from your awarded mark for each lateday.– Saturday and Sunday are counted as one calendar day each.– Assessments will not be accepted after the marked assessment task has been returned to students.– This is consistent with Western Sydney University’s Assessment Policy19Extension of Due Date for SubmissionExtensions are only granted in exceptional circumstances.
