Overview

Description

A thorough understanding of the systems of the body and the ways in which they fit together is imperative for study in many fields of biological inquiry, including medicine, physiology, developmental studies, and biological anthropology. This course will provide you with an overview of the body from a systemic perspective. Each unit will focus on one system, or network of organs that work together to perform a particular function. At the end of this course, we will review the body from an integrative perspective, creating a more realistic vision of the ways in which the systems overlap. We will also discuss current body imaging techniques and learn how to correctly interpret the images in order to put our newly-gained anatomical knowledge to practical use.This is a terminology-heavy course. We will identify tissues and organ systems according to their functional and regional contexts, but information concerning the processes by which the tissues and organ systems actually function will be covered inBIO304: Human Physiology.Pre-requisites: You should have completed eitherBIO101A or Bio101B: Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology. Co-requisite:Human Anatomy Lab.
