Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

After graduating the subject the student gains information about principles of creation, transmision, processing and storing information in the living systems. The subject with its content belongs into the inter-field of the batchelor field with a specialization on a biomedical engineer specialist in medical facilities.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The subject is aimed at general principles of the genesis, transmission, the processing and enshrinement information study in the living systems, the modelling and simulation of the biological systems and the way of operation study in physiological and pathological conditions. The ground is formed by the cell, biological membranes, bio thermodynamics and biophysical chemistry. The quality biological systems study deals with the neurophysiology, nervous system, respiratory system, locomotive organs, vascular system, heart activity, genetic information, sensory system and organ's function replacement.
