Description: This lecture and laboratory course in human anatomy and physiology emphasizes the integration of structure and function. The underlying basis of the course is built on the study of anatomical terminology, cells, and tissues. The course expands this study into the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Laboratory study is enhanced by the microscopic study of tissues, examination of anatomical models, and the dissection of preserved material. Laboratory study is also enhanced by the examination of prosected whole cadavers as well as prosected head, torso, upper and lower extremities, and individual organs. Laboratory activities also include both wet-lab experiments and computer simulations. Both BIOL 430 and BIOL 431 must be taken to complete the study of all major body systems.
