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. Graduating students will display mastery of cellular and functional physiology of selected organ systems, their basic architecture, and the underlying biophysical processes. 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.
