BIOM 603 - Physiology I

The integration of cell and organ systems into a coherent, functional organism is studied, in a course designed for students with either an educational and life science background.  Topics covered include major aspects of human physiology, with an emphasis on mechanisms.  The structure and function of each system is treated, as well as the interrelations and integration of their hormonal and neural control mechanisms.  BIOM 603 focuses on how excitable tissue (nerves and muscle) and the cardiovascular and respiratory systems work.
