Anatomy & Physiology IA: Introduction to Structure & Function

Graduate Education
Anatomy, Physiology & Genetics
3 Quarter Hours
Course Description: 

This course is intended as the introduction to an extended study of the development, form, and function of the normal human body. Covered in a series of overlapping and interdependent lectures and laboratory exercises are Basic Cell Biology, Basic Tissue Types, Core Concepts of Physiology, and Early Embryonic Development. Students are expected to learn how to identify structural components of cells, tissues, and organs, as they appear in the light and electron microscopes and how to deduce, from microscope views (or micrographs) the most likely functional features of the cell/tissue/organ under observation.
