Physiology is the study of essential life processes. This course will examine the function of body systems (such as the circulatory, respiratory, gastrointestinal, and nervous systems), on the levels of cellular function, organ function, and whole system function. The course will use mammalian physiology as a focus, but will also draw comparisons with other vertebrates. Laboratory exercises will be used to reinforce important concepts, but no labs will cause harm to any live animals.
