Certificate in Environmental Biology - Physiology DENT 1119   Physiology
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This lecture-based review course is designed to survey seven essential areas of human physiology: cellular, nervous system, cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, gastrointestinal and endocrine physiology. This course addresses how molecular, subcellular, and cellular mechanisms determine the function of tissues, organs, and systems. Each series of lectures is followed by a tutorial and/or practice exam in the Bright space. The overall objective of this course is to provide a solid foundation of facts about physiological mechanisms as well as a knowledge of underlying principles which, when brought together, allow the student to find solutions to new problems. The relationship between organ systems will also be emphasized to underscore the integrative mechanisms for homeostasis.
