BI217
Human Physiology II - Structure, Function & Integration
0.5 Credit - Winter

The physiology of the major structural and functional systems of the human body will be examined using mechanistic and integrative approaches. Topics will include examination of the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary and immune systems and how they respond to disease, physical trauma, exercise or changing environments. The control and integration of these systems will be illustrated by examining the physiology of space travel, high altitude and diving. Laboratories will use problem-based approaches and collaborative learning to illustrate theoretical and practical concepts, and combine computer simulations with hands on experimentation in the lab, as well as recording physiological data from human volunteers.
