BIOL& 241 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I
Introduces the structure and function of tissues, organs, and systems of the human body. Both BIOL& 241 and BIOL 242 are needed for a complete study of the anatomy and physiology of all human systems. Format includes laboratory work.
Prerequisite(s): BIOL 160 or BIOL 211 with a C or better.
- Identify the components of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems and describe their location in anatomical terms.
- Recognize and describe the relationship between the anatomical structure of an organ and how it correlates to its function.
- Observe and describe differences in tissue types to predict their role in the normal structure and functioning of an organ.
- Explain the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems, and how an inability to maintain homeostasis can lead to disease.
- Use appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology.
