PHSO V01 - INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY - 4 Units
Prerequisite: ANAT V01 or concurrent enrollment; and CHEM V20-V20L or CHEM V30-V30L or 1 year of high school chemistry with grades of C or better.Recommended preparation: BIOL V01-V01L or BIOL V04; and CHEM V01A-V01AL or CHEM V21-V21L
Hours: 3 lecture, 3 laboratory weekly
This course presents a survey of the functional relationships between major organ systems, tissues and cells within the human body. A heavy emphasis on the biochemistry of major physiological mechanisms will lead to an understanding of the interactions between tissues that contribute to overall homeostasis in the human body. Laboratory exercises emphasize the development of both laboratory skills pertinent to physiology as well as an understanding of the nature and significance of a variety of physiological parameters which will be measured in the lab (including ECG, respiratory measurements, electromyogram, pH and buffers, enzyme activity, and others).

Prerequisite: CHEM V20-V20L or CHEM V30-V30L or 1 year of high school chemistry with grades of C or better
Recommended preparation: BIOL V01-V01L
Hours: 3 lecture, 6 laboratory weekly
This course offers a survey of the structural and functional relationships which exist between organs and tissues within the human body. The human body will be approached from a gross anatomical perspective in the lab using models, human organs, histology slides and cadaver observations and from the physiological perspective in lecture discussions and exercises. Cellular structure and physiology, histology and fundamentals of molecular biology will be used to describe the mechanisms by which homeostatic balance is maintained in the body as a whole.
