NS 3410 - Human Anatomy and Physiology

Spring. 4 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: One year introductory biology (BIOG 1440  or BIOG 1445  strongly recommended). Enrollment limited to: Senior, junior, or sophomore students.

K. O’Brien, A. Thalacker-Mercer.

Introduces human anatomy and physiology by detailing the structure and function of the human body and mechanisms used to maintain homeostasis. Emphasis is given to aspects relevant to the nutritional sciences and medicine. Content includes language of anatomy, cells, tissue, integumentary, respiratory, skeletal, muscular, digestive, nervous, cardiovascular, urinary, and reproductive systems. Clinical examples are provided to highlight perturbations and physiology of topics discussed. Evaluation is based on attendance, iclicker-based class interaction, two take home case studies, weekly quizzes, and a midterm and final.

Outcome 1: Identify major human body systems in terms of their location, function, key components and anatomical nomenclature.

Outcome 2: Demonstrate an understanding of metabolic functions and physiological control of each major organ system.

Outcome 3: Recognize and synthesize principles of homeostasis with respect to how major organ systems are physiologically interrelated to maintain human health.
