NS 3420 - Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory

Spring. 2 credits.

Prerequisite or corequisite: NS 3410 . Enrollment limited to: College biology; senior, junior, or sophomore students. Enrollment preference given to DNS majors. Registered students must attend mandatory first lab; no shows will be dropped. No admittance after second week.

M. Lujan.

Principles of human anatomy and physiology will be presented using anatomical models, drawings, dissections, and histology as well as interactive noninvasive assessment of physiological functions and review of clinical case studies. Weekly lecture will provide content connections with NS 3410 . Emphasis will be on location, recognition, and description of anatomical structure and relation to function. Content includes human body orientation and language of anatomy, histology, and regulation of various organ systems. Evaluation based on attendance, two lab practicums, and lab written assignments.

Outcome 1: Demonstrate the ability to readily identify components of the major organs systems and describe their location in the human body using anatomical terminology.

Outcome 2: Demonstrate the ability to predict the physiological consequences of imbalances in the homeostatic regulation of the major organ systems.

Outcome 3: Demonstrate an understanding of how organ systems are integrated at the whole body level.
