Class Details

This course explores animal physiology–the principles and mechanisms by which animals live and function. Across the semester we will survey a variety of physiological processes including intracellular communication, animal movement, circulation, gas exchange, ion/water balance, digestion and metabolism, and thermoregulation. We will explore these topics from the level of cells and tissues to the whole organism, surveying a wide variety of animals with a focus on vertebrates. Laboratories provide practical experience in the experimental measurement and analysis of physiological parameters in animal models and in human subjects.
