BIOL 446 - Cardiovascular Physiology (O)
(Prerequisites: BIOL 245, PHYS 120 or 140)
The physiological and biophysical bases of cardiovascular function, including cardiac electrophysiology and mechanics; regulation of the heart and the peripheral circulation; hemodynamics; solute and fluid exchange; and cell-cell interactions governing white blood cell transit. Special circulations will highlight the role of cardiovascular regulation in overall physiological function. Three hours lecture.
