This class was tough.
Although, anatomy and physiology can be very straining and difficult to comprehend sometimes, the overall knowledge of your own human body can be greatly awesome. This course not only showed me how intricately woven together my body is, but also different ways to take care of it. Not to mention the fact that now when I go to a doctor I have a slightly better understanding of what he is talking about as well as having a good vocabulary to tell him how I am feeling.
I learned so much about how my body works together to stay alive. The highlights of this course for me was learning about the heart, the bones, and the brain. The heart is on a completely repetitive circuit, when one set of cells is stimulated, it stimulates the next which stimulate the next, which stimulate the first cells again and they continue to go in a circle until the person dies. The bones are all developed in such interesting ways with so many different names for microscopic canals and structures. The brain, of course was so interesting to learn about how it sends neural impulses throughout the whole body.

Advice for students:
Study, study, study. This is a very hard course and the more you put into learning this information and really diving into the vocabulary of the course, the more you will learn and get out of the class.
