BIOL 446 - Cardiovascular Physiology (S)
(Prerequisites: BIOL 245 or PSIO 320 and PHYS 120/PHYS 120L or PHYS 140/PHYS 140L )
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.
