Title Description Tag(s) Detail
Elements that make up the human body Introducing the periodic table of elements, and identifying the major elements involved in the human body and their roles Biology, Chemistry, periodic table View further information on this RLO.
Bacteria and viruses compared Introduces and compares the structural components associated with bacteria and viruses by allowing users to "build" their own. Biology, Physiology, pathogen, infection control View further information on this RLO.
Inflammatory response Describes the inflammatory response - a series of local cellular and vascular responses which are triggered when the body is injured or invaded by micro-organisms or antigen. Biology, immunology, inflammatory response, allergy View further information on this RLO.
Concentration gradients This RLO describes the concept of concentration gradients in biological systems through analogy with gradients found in everyday life, and outlines passive and active transport across cell membranes. Biology, Chemistry View further information on this RLO.
Glomerular Filtration Pressure The RLO deals with the opposing forces within the glomerulus and the Bowmans capsule which together create the glomerular filtration pressure. The RLO builds on the Starlings Forces RLO by the same author and is intended to form the basis for a future RLO on glomerular filtration rate. This RLO was developed jointly with De Montfort University. Biology, Kidney, Hydrostatic pressure, Starling's forces, Oncotic pressure, renal View further information on this RLO.
Liver Physiology Introduction to the physiology of the liver, examining its role in filtering blood, metabolism, nutrient extraction and homeostasis. Biology, Liver, Pharmacology, Physiology View further information on this RLO.
Osmosis and Diffusion Explaining the difference between the processes of diffusion and osmosis, and introducing the concepts of concentration gradients and tonicity. Biology, Chemistry View further information on this RLO.
The Kidneys and Drug Excretion The role of the kidneys in the excretion of drugs. Biology, Kidney, Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
The Liver and drug metabolism The role of the liver in the metabolism of drugs. Biology, Liver, Pharmacology View further information on this RLO.
Lock and Key Hypothesis Introducing the "lock and key" analogy of drug-receptor interaction, whereby only drugs of a certain molecular shape will 'fit' with a cell membrane receptor. Pharmacology, Biology View further information on this RLO.
Exploring the synapse Describe the events during the transmission of an impulse across a synapse Biology, Pharmacology, neuron, synapse, neurology, nerve View further information on this RLO.
Drug-receptor interaction Introduction to the interaction of cell receptors with drugs Biology, Pharmacology, cell biology View further information on this RLO.

Kidney Anatomy Introduction to the external and internal anatomy of the kidney. Anatomy, Biology, Kidney View further information on this RLO.
Kidney Physiology Introduction to the physiology of the kidney, examining the processes by which the kidneys filter blood, control body pH and eliminate the waste products of metabolism from the body. Biology, Kidney View further information on this RLO.
Liver Anatomy Introduction to the external and internal anatomy of the liver. Biology, Liver View further information on this RLO.
Starling's Forces An examination of the roles of hydrostatic and oncotic pressure in movement of fluid and gases across the capillary wall. Biology, Kidney, renal View further information on this RLO.
Respiratory ventilation: anatomy and mechanics Presents the purpose of ventilation, the anatomical parts involved, and the muscular activity that enables ventilation to take place at rest. Anatomy, Biology, breathing, respiration, lung function View further information on this RLO.
Cell Division To identify the importance of cell division and briefly describe mitosis and meiosis. Biology View further information on this RLO.
