The study subject links to Anatomy and Physiology II and is dedicated to excitable tissues (muscles and neural system) in the terms of signal generation, measuring possibilities and exploitation of changes in electrical parameters. Signal generation is explained at cellular and molecular levels, different software simulations are employed. From the methodological point of view, measurements of electrical parameters are described at all levels - cells, tissues, organs. Exploitation of electrical parameters of cells, tissues and organs is treated from both clinical and experimental points. Methods to use electrical field or stimulation for medical purposes are described. Besides lectures, practical classes focused on independent study of students are incorporated into the syllabus.


Credit: attendance at classes and protocols from classes.

Exam: written test, multiple-choice, number of questions 20, classification according to directions.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. - 2. General electrophysiology. Introduction, history, membrane of excitable tissues, action and resting membrane potential, nerve and synapse.
