      The goalTo make students knowledge closer to the role of the nervous system in the regulation and control of functions of the other organ systems. To enable the students to make a complex analysis of humoral regulation and control of organ systems, tissues and number of biological molecules, which is essential that students could understand the different pathological states. This will enable effective learning about the various integral regulations relevant to the functioning of organ systems (hematopoietic, cardiovascular, digestive, respiratory, endocrine). This is the basis for understanding their changes during the illness and remarkable for the successful acquisition of knowledge on subjects in the next year of study
      The outcomeTo make students to understand how are regulated functions of organs and organ systems, to understand their connection and to be able to apply their knowledge in solving various problems in experimental and practical work.
      Contents of lecturesIntegrative role of somatic and nervous system in the regulation of physiological and phathophysiological condition. Mechanisms of pain. Synaptic transmission, neurotransmitters, neuromodulators. Signaling molecules, hormones, prohormones, parahormones. The mechanism of regulation of hormone concentration in the circulation. Hormone receptors. Endogenous biologically active compounds and their importance in disease processes. Humoral regulation of hematopoiesis, the regulation of angiogenesis, the clinical significance tests in physiological and pathophysiological conditions. Thoughts on energy metabolism and its regulation. Nervous and humoral regulation functions of the digestive tract, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Nervous and humoral regulation of reproduction. Functional testing of the endocrine system. Physiology and pathophysiology of stress, with special emphasis on the impact of stress reactions in the immune system and metabolism
