BIOL 3324 Human Physiology (open honors section) Course Description and Objectives: In depth examination of the coordinated interactions of mammalian cells and tissues and the physical, chemical, and molecular processes necessary for normal body function.

As this is an honors section, more attention will be paid to original literature, experimental data that support current understanding, and aspects of physiology that are not yet fully understood. There is also a requirement for students to make reports on studies that have appeared in recent scientific literature in physiology.

    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.
