3 Credit Hour(s)
This course is designed for Biology Majors, or students who are pursuing careers that will require admission to and study in health-related programs. There will be a short review of the basic concepts of chemistry, cell biology, and tissues. Students who are entering this course are required to have prior knowledge of these areas of study, as well as prior knowledge of the human organ systems. The organ systems covered in BIO 2283 are the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine. Aging, disease, stress, growth, and development will be addressed through many structural levels of organization and through the eleven organ systems. There will be an emphasis on the molecular and cellular aspects of function within the human body. The laboratory sessions include specimen dissection, studying anatomical models, and viewing microscopic slides as well as computer-simulated physiological experiments.
