Anatomy and Physiology: An exploration of the human body

Have you ever wondered how the human body really works? If so, then you are already thinking like a physiologist. Physiology is the branch of biological sciences dealing with the functioning of organisms. At the basic level, physiology helps us understand how living creatures do all the things they do: eat, run, jump, breathe, think, and keep their hearts beating.  The class will be a “hands-on” and “minds-on” experience, where you will learn whole-body integrative physiology.  You will use the same lab where college physiology students do and use computers to collect and analyze data. You will also have the chance to closely examine real organs, monitor vital signs, perform an EKG, and test your lung function.
