BIOL 5550 Laboratory in Physiology (Spring: 1 )


Course Description

The mechanisms that underlie homeostasis in the healthy human are varied and complex. In this computer-based physiology laboratory, we will emphasize the processes that regulate important properties of living systems as we explore the intricacies of some of the major organ systems in the human body. We will investigate the functions of the intact, living organism through real-time, hands-on data acquisition and analysis of the cardiovascular, respiratory and neuromuscular systems. Several labs will focus on sensory and motor systems because of their clinical relevance. Students will learn about different clinical measurements, including electromyography, spirometry, and cardiac electrophysiology.


Instructor(s): Prof. Mullikin-Kilpatrick
