This course covers function aspects of the human body from the cellular to the organ-system level. Students will learn the major physiology of body systems, including mechanisms and regulation of normal body functions and pathophysiological aspects of disease. Students will gain skills in measuring physiological outputs and will analyze these data to give meaningful interpretations of the physiological status of the body. Finally, students will gain an appreciation of the intricacy and detail of the human body, the importance of precision and accuracy in experimental work, and the value of collaborative learning.
Note For successful completion of this course, it is recommended that students are familiar with BIOL 125: Biology I, BIOL 126: Biology II or their equivalents.
