Courses in Physiology (Division 580)

101. Introduction to Human Physiology. No prerequisite, but prior exposure to introductory chemistry is helpful. No credit granted to those who have completed 102. (3). (NS).

Physiology 101 and Physiology 102 are courses in basic human physiology and are designed to help students to (1) know the functions of the major organs of the body; (2) understand the basic physical-chemical mechanisms responsible for each organ's function; (3) relate organ functions to the general concept of regulation of the internal environment; (4) recognize pathological states (diseases) as consequences of altered normal function. Physiology 102 students attend a laboratory session every other week and receive an additional unit of academic credit. Every Physiology 101/102 student must register for a conference section which meets once a week. Conference sections offer students an opportunity to ask questions and to participate in small group discussions on recent lecture topics. The textbook for the course is: Human Physiology: The Mechanisms of Body Function (fourth edition) by Vander, Sherman, and Luciano. Examinations are multiple choice. There will be two examinations during the term and a final examination. The hour examinations are given in the evening from 7-8 p.m. Students electing Physiology 102 will also be given a laboratory examination at the end of the course. (Sherman)

102. Principles of Human Physiology. No prerequisite, but prior exposure to introductory chemistry is helpful. No credit granted to those who have completed 101. (4). (NS).
