PHYSIOL 502 — Human Physiology
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Rust,Elizabeth McLaurine; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 4

PHYSIOL 502 is an introductory graduate / advanced undergraduate course that covers the basic principles of cell physiology and the functions of the major organ systems. The course, which is 4 credit hours, is given in the winter term every year.

FORMAT: Three 90 minute lectures per week (MWF 12:30-2:00 pm), presented by various members of the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology. There will be 4 midterm exams and a comprehensive final exam.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • To describe physiological functions in terms of physical and chemical laws.
  • To understand the functions of individual cells as the basis for understanding the functions of organs.
  • To demonstrate the coordination of physiological processes that underlies the maintenance of a stable internal environment (homeostasis).
  • To explain how different organ systems contribute to homeostasis.

TEXBOOK: "VANDER'S HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY", 10th Edition. by E.P. Widmaier, H. Raff and K.T. Strang. McGraw-Hill, 2006. Each lecturer will assign reading in the text for his/her section. Some reading assignments may be required in advance of the lecture.

EXAMINATIONS: There will be four midterm exams and a comprehensive final exam. All exams will consist of multiple-choice questions. Students are responsible for all material covered in lecture, web notes and any reading specifically assigned by the lecturers. Exam scores will be posted on the course web site by student ID number as soon as possible after each exam.

GRADES: Each exam will count 20% of the course grade.

Advisory Prerequisite: INT BIO&BIOCH

PHYSIOL 541 — Mammalian Reproductive Endocrinology
Section 001, LEC

Instructor: Mahoney,Megan Marie; homepage

WN 2007
Credits: 4

Every Winter Term, the Reproductive Science Program offers a course in Mammalian Reproductive Endocrinology (MRE 541) which is part of the curriculum of three departments (Cell and Developmental Biology, Biology, Physiology and Psychology). This is a four-credit course for graduate and upper level undergraduate students.

Mammal Reproductive Endocrinology: A study of the physiological and behavior actions for reproductive hormones, which are responsible for the regulation of the reproductive systems and behavior. Topics include: The properties and mechanisms of action of pituitary gonadotropin and sex steroid hormones, the anatomy and endocrine regulation of the reproductive tracts (reproductive & maternal behavior), mechanisms of fertilization, implantation and development, the (neuro) endocrinology of mating and maternal behavior, pregnancy, and contraception.

Advisory Prerequisite: BIOLOGY 310 or 311, or BIOLCHEM 415.

PHYSIOL 576 — Signal Transduction
Section 001, LEC
Meets Jan 4 thru Feb 5. (Drop/Add deadline=Jan. 24).

Instructor: Fisher,Stephen K
Instructor: Carter-Su,Christin
Instructor: Guan,Kunliang

WN 2007
Credits: 1
Other: Minicourse

An overview of hormone and neurotransmitter receptors as well as the cellular effectors that are regulated by receptor activation. Oncogene products as signal transducers and the interaction of the known signaling pathways will be covered. The various techniques used to study signal transduction as well as important experimental strategies employing these techniques will also be presented. This course is module I of Cellular Physiology (PHYSIOL 576, 577, 578).

Advisory Prerequisite: Two terms of organic chemistry; BIOLCHEM 415 or 451/452. Physical Chemistry is strongly recommended.
