Sample text

The genes that are expressed determine the functions of every cell. This is the central dogma of molecular biology, and it plays out in a large number of situations in physiological systems. Homeostasis: The internal environment of the organism is actively maintained constant by the function of cells, tissues, and organs organized into negative feedback systems. The role of negative feedback in regulating the functions of the body is a particularly powerful core concept in that it describes so much of organ system physiology.

To fully understand, physiology students must understand how the results they are reading about were generated and how future results will be generated. Structure/function: The function of a cell, tissue, or organ is determined by its form. Structure and function (from the molecular level to the organ system level) are intrinsically related to each other. When applied to human designed and constructed artifacts this is a truism. But it is equally true of biological systems. An understanding of a physiological mechanism requires some understanding of the structures that involved.

5, 6, and 7, we present the conceptual frameworks, the unpacking, of the three core concepts that we selected for our initial development work: homeostasis, flow down gradients, and cell–cell communication. For each of these core concepts, we discuss the elements of the framework, define the key terms that are used in each framework, present a visual representation of the concept, and, finally, discuss some of the issues that arise in helping students understand each concept.
