Courses in Physiology (Division 580)

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

Physiology 101 is a course in basic human physiology 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 (disease) as consequences of altered normal function. In addition to 2 two-hour lectures per week, there is a conference section which meets once a week. Conference sections offer 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)
