KIN 3385: Human Physiology

4 Credits

This four-credit course is divided into two weekly 75-minute lectures and one 60 minute lab session once per week. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to describe the function of the different organs and systems in the body, explain the biophysical mechanisms and describe the interactions and feedback processes to achieve a steady-state. This course provides the biological principles for how the body works, from the function of intracellular organelles to the interactions between systems and the role of each organ. It explains the relationship between structure and function and describes the development of diseases when the physiological systems become impaired. This course in human physiology builds on knowledge obtained using the basic sciences of math, chemistry, and physics. Thus, understanding some of these sciences' basic principles is essential to fully understanding the physiological principles during this course. The lab component of this course takes place at the Human Performance Teaching Laboratory (HPTL). Lab activities are an interactive component of the course. During labs, students will perform a series of experiments, record data, and will provide a physiological interpretation for the results. The combination of lecture material and laboratory experience will allow students to understand disease mechanisms, comprehend the strategies to prevent and treat the most frequent medical conditions, and live a healthy life. The instructor's goal is not just to teach the most up-to-date knowledge on human physiology but also to arouse your curiosity so you continue learning beyond this course. prereq: [KIN 3027 or ANAT 3001 or ANAT 3601 or ANAT 3611 or ANAT 3651 or ANAT 3658H ] and [Kin or Physical Activity and Health Promotion Major] or instr consent
