3200: Human Physiology (U5)

This is a five-credit, one semester course that replaces the two semester series of 3101/3102 that was previously taught in the Physiology and Cell Biology department. This in-depth course is designed for students who are planning careers in the health sciences. It teaches the physiology of human organ systems, including the following: nervous system, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, endocrine and reproductive systems.

Prerequisite: Six semester credit hours in the biological sciences

Offered both Autumn and Spring semesters.

Programs of Study

Faculty interests cover many areas of physiology from whole-organ systems to single-cell functions. Current research projects include studies in neurophysiology, ion transport in epithelial cells, temperature regulation, control of respiration, the cardiovascular system, energetics of muscle contraction, spinal cord injury, endocrinology and neuroendocrinology, autonomic control of gastrointestinal functions, biomechanics, and environmental physiology. Liaisons with clinical departments and their faculty are possible when research projects require clinical expertise.
