PSIO 320 - Cellular and Integrative Physiology

4 cr.

(Prerequisites: BIOL 141  – BIOL 142 CHEM 113 PSIO 220  – PSIO 221 , all with labs) Concurrent enrollment in PSIO 320L  required.    

Modern physiology is a highly integrative discipline that relies on comprehension at all levels of function, from molecular to organismal.  This course will delve into the foundational concepts and mechanisms that reside at the molecular and cellular levels.  These foundational elements will be integrated as we explore how physiological systems enable organisms to adapt and respond to challenges posed by dynamic internal and external environments.  A comparative approach that examines how organisms meet the unique challenges they encounter will inform the exploration of physiological function.
