E. Loew.

General course in animal physiology emphasizing principles of operation, regulation, and integration common to a broad range of living systems from the cellular to the organismal level. Structure/function relationships are stressed along with underlying physico-chemical mechanisms.

Outcome 1: Students should be able to rationalize the operation of major organ systems.

Outcome 2: Students should understand the organization of multisystem regulatory loops.

Outcome 3: Students should be able to derive and understand the basic equations defining the physical operating characteristics of organ systems.
