Human Physiology and Anatomy: An Evolutionary Perspective

EvAnth 330

Physiology from a functional and evolutionary perspective. Systems-based and regional approach that differs from both a standard anatomy and physiology course by examining each system (musculosketal, circulatory etc.) and regional units (liver, heart, limb muscles) from a functional stand-point considering their anatomy and their physiological role together. Focus on human physiology but will consider differences between humans and other vertebrates to illustrate functional aspects of anatomical structures. Prerequisites: EVANTH 101 or introductory biology. One course.
