BL 452 - General and Human Physiology with Lab

(5.00 cr.)

Students are exposed to the general physiological principles of mammals, particularly humans, at the organismal, tissue, cellular, and molecular levels. This integrated lecture laboratory course covers key physiological concepts such as homeostasis, feedback mechanisms, cellular metabolism, signaling pathways, and both normal and pathological states of the major human organ systems. The laboratory component provides hands on experience measuring specific physiological parameters, dissecting various mammalian organs to observe structure/function relationships, generating and investigating independent scientific questions in physiology, as well as practicing scientific analysis and communication skills. Additionally, laboratory exercises may include computer simulations, case studies, and service activities to reinforce the key physiological concepts in the course. Closed to students who have taken BL 206  or BL 208 .

Prerequisite: BL 118 , BL 119 , BL 121 , BL 126 .
