Focuses on selected vertebrate organ systems; considers other systems where relevant. Prerequisite: BIOL 2010 and 2020.
This course explores human form & function. Integrated lectures and labs focus on systems for support & locomotion, integration & control, regulation & maintenance, reproduction & development. Labs include anatomical dissection, 3D model analysis of organs & organ systems, and computer-based physiology experiments & histological investigations. The first of a two course sequence, this course offers a meaningful single semester A&P experience.
This course builds on the material and concepts covered in Human Anatomy & Physiology I (BIOL3410). Coordinated lectures and labs explore topics in anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology across human organ systems. Lab investigations use computer-based physiology experiments, model & dissection-based anatomical studies, and clinical and biomedical case studies to illustrate and expand content presented in lecture.
