BIOAP 3190 - Animal Physiology Experimentation

(crosslisted)
(also BIOMS 3190 ) (PBS)
Fall. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite or corequisite: BIOAP 3110 . Enrollment limited to: pre-med/pre-vet juniors, seniors, and graduate students interested in biomedical science.

E. Loew, N. Lorr, staff.

Student-conducted in vitro and in vivo experiments designed to illustrate basic physiological processes, physiological research techniques, instrumentation, experimental design, and interpretation of results. Techniques include anesthesia, surgical procedures, dissection, and real-time computer recording and analysis. Experiments with isolated living tissues or live anesthetized animals examine properties of membranes and epithelia, blood, nerves, skeletal and smooth muscle; cardiovascular, respiratory, renal, and reproductive function and their regulation by the nervous and endocrine systems.

Outcome 1: understand the role of physical phenomena, including electrochemical gradients and mechanical forces in the physiology of live systems

Outcome 2: understand the scientific method including experimental design, formulating and testing hypotheses

Outcome 3: know how to work cooperatively in small groups

Outcome 4: know how to communicate scientific concepts and experimental results in written and oral form

Outcome 5: understand how to use statistics to assess the significance of results

Outcome 6: know how to research the published scientific findings and interpret them
