Courses in Physiology (Division 580)

101. Introduction to Human Physiology. No prerequisite, but prior exposure to introductory chemistry is helpful. (3). (NS).

The overall student objectives for this course are 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 concept of maintaining the internal environment; (4) recognize pathological states (disease) as consequences of altered normal function. In addition to 2 two-hour lectures per week, there is a discussion section which meets once a week offering students the opportunity to ask questions and to participate in small group discussions on recent lecture topics. The textbook used is: HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY: THE MECHANISMS OF BODY FUNCTIONS (fourth edition) by Vander, Sherman and Luciano. 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. (Sherman)
