Oude examenvragen

Heleboel oude vragen op de site van vtk, die vandaag (2012) nog relevant zijn (zelfde prof, zelfde cursus en examenvorm).

Mijn vragen waren (juni 2011) - Het hart (eigenlijk volledig uitleggen) - De nieren (dynamische regeling, ook volledig uitleggen eigenlijk met focus op de regeling met ADH, vasa recta enzoverder) - Daarna nog een heleboel "parate kennisvraagjes", over spiercontractie, zwangerschapshormoon, oestrogeen + RankL + osteoporose, Alzheimer, enzoverder
