Physiology (PHSL)

Biology (BIOL), Physiology (PHSL), and Physics (PHYS), and Zoology (ZOOL) courses are listed in separate sections.

PHSL P130 Human Biology (4 cr.) Basic concepts in human biology. Covers reproduction and development, physiological regulations, stress biology, and behavioral biology and emphasizes related social problems. Credit will be given for only one of the following introductory-level courses or sequences: BIOL L100-BIOL M200-BIOL M121; BIOL B101; BIOL Z103; PHSL P130; BIOL L101-BIOL L102. (Fall, Spring, Summer II)

PHSL P261 Human Anatomy and Physiology I (4 cr.) P: BIOL L100, PHSL P130, or the equivalent, or combined SAT of 700+. Introduction to basic structure and function of the human body including laboratory studies in gross anatomy, histology, and physiology. Topics are cellular anatomy and physiology, body tissues, and integument and the skeletal, muscle, endocrine, and nervous systems. (Fall, Spring)

PHSL P262 Human Anatomy and Physiology II (4 cr.) P: PHSL P261. Second semester topics are the circulatory, respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive systems; fluid and electrolyte balance; and acid-base balance. (PHSL P261 and PHSL P262 cannot be used to fulfill the physiology requirement for biology majors.) (Spring, Summer I, Summer II)

PHSL P263 Principles of Anatomy and Physiology—Special Topics (0.5-3 cr.) R: PHSL P261 or PHSL P262 concurrent or with consent of instructor. Study of selected topics in human anatomy and physiology as they relate to specific organ systems or functions. Topics vary by semester and correlate with material covered in PHSL P261 and PHSL P262. May be repeated with change in topic. (Fall, Spring, Summer I, Summer II)

PHSL P416 Comparative Animal Physiology (3 cr.) P: two college biology courses, one college mathematics course, CHEM C106. Lecture course. Physiological principles of the respiratory, circulatory, excretory, and related systems in a variety of invertebrate and vertebrate animals. (Fall)

PHSL P461 Comparative Physiology of Animals (4 cr.) P: one year of chemistry. R: one 300-400 level biology course. The basic mechanisms are considered whereby various organisms integrate and coordinate similar functional requirements based on phylogeny and environmental relationships. (Fall)
