BIO150 - Survey of Human Anatomy and Physiology

Credits: 4

Catalog Description: A one semester survey of the anatomy and physiology of the human body. The course studies basic anatomical terminology, body organization, cellular activities and histology. Emphasis is on structure and function and the role negative feedback and homeostasis play in the human body. Body systems studied include cardiovascular, skeletal, muscular, endocrine, reproductive, nervous and respiratory. Laboratory study includes microscope work, model study, organ dissection, and exercises designed to illustrate normal form and function. This course is primarily for students interested in physical education studies, fitness and recreation management, polysomnography, and students that may need a four credit science course for transfer.

Lecture: 3 hrs.

Lab: 3 hrs.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
Upon the successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:
1. Identify methods biological scientists use to explore natural phenomena.
2. Use appropriate terminology to explain information related to anatomy and physiology.
3. Identify the major classes of tissues, and describe their specific characteristics.
4. Identify anatomical structures and features within selected organ systems using various resources (models, diagrams, dissections, microscopes, etc)
5. Explain the physiological processes in selected organ systems
6. Identify and describe the interrelationships between structure and function in the selected organ systems.
7. Explain the principle of homeostasis as it relates to selected body systems.
8. Describe how feedback loops are used to control selected body systems.
9. Summarize how specified body systems interact together to maintain homeostasis.
