Its main objective is to establish the concept that physiology is not simply a set of individual biological components and functions, but that systems work together as an integrated unit to maintain health and well-being. Examples will be taken from a variety of mammalian species. Please be aware that we will expect you to transfer and apply knowledge of the basic principles of physiology established in Human Systems Physiology 3115 (please see your “Need to Know List” in the Laboratory Manual; those topics will not be re-taught.) Please note that a brief Assessment test will be given to evaluate students’ current knowledge. This test is obligatory and will be worth up to 3% Extra Credit.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
