BIO2522 Anatomy and Physiology II


This course, with its prequel (BIO 2521  ), is designed to provide a thorough overview of the basic tissue systems of the human, with particular emphasis on the concepts of “form follows function” and homeostatic regulation. This course will pick up where BIO 2521   leaves off. Human organ systems to be covered include the cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive systems. In addition to applying scientific skills learned in BIO 1521   and BIO 1522  , students will become proficient in histology, understand and articulate how organ/tissue structure is related to function, comprehend the homeostatic mechanisms required to keep all systems in balance, and apply knowledge to predict what will happen if homeostasis is interrupted. Information will be presented in variety of modalities currently used at Landmark College, including small group work, tactile and kinesthetic activities, reading and summarizing, videos, and lecture. Students will attend weekly labs in which basic lab techniques such as histology/microscopy, dissection, and basic physiological measurements will be practiced. Lab included. Credits: 4.000
