G801 Experimental Approaches to Cell Structure and Function (3 cr.) The overall objective of this graduate course in cell biology is to present, in an experimental context, information integrating cell structure with cell function. The focus is on topics in which new information on cell structure has enhanced or reformulated our understanding of cell function. Staff

G818 Integrative Cell Biology (3 cr.) This course provides broad understanding of ways in which cells are organized and integrated into tissues. Emphasis is on the function of cells in neural/neuroendocrine system, cardiopulmonary, renal, and immune systems and in cytomechanics. Modern approaches to the study of tissue function by analysis of cellular regulation will be emphasized. Staff

G819 Basic Bone Biology (2 cr.) P: One semester introductory biology. An introduction to basic bone biology, including bone morphology, composition and physiology; cell biology of bone cells; measurement techniques; adaptation to the mechanical and metabolic environments; regulatory factors and mineral homeostasis; and growth and development. Staff

D850 Gross Anatomy (8 cr.) A survey course of human anatomy, including a complete dissection. Seifert

D851 Histology (4 cr.) A complete survey of the microscopic structure of the tissues and organs of the body. McAteer

D852 Neuroscience and Clinical Neurology (5 cr.) A systematic study of the nervous system. Wong

D853 Human Developmental Anatomy (cr. arr.) P: D850, D851, D852. A correlative study of prenatal and neonatal form and function. Odd years. Staff

D854 Histochemistry and Cytochemistry (3 cr.) P: D851. Application of histochemical techniques to the study of organs and tissues and to special problems. Odd years. Swartz

D861 Seminar (1 cr.) Required of all graduate students in residence. Presentations of papers by students, staff, and outside speakers. Includes post-seminar discussion. Staff

D862 Anatomical Techniques (cr. arr.) Introduction to techniques in anatomical research and in preparation of teaching materials. Staff

D863 Peripheral Nervous System (2-3 cr.) Anatomical and functional consideration of sensory, motor, and autonomic portions of the peripheral nervous system, with emphasis on neurotransmission and its regulation, physiology of receptors, neuromuscular junction, peripheral axons and their central regulation, myelination, and axonal transport. Peterson

D864 Advanced Gross Anatomy (1-5 cr.) P: D503. Functional, clinical, and developmental gross morphology of specific regions of the human body; special topics may vary. Staff

D865 Developmental Neuroanatomy (3 cr.) Basic principles and problems relating to prenatal and postnatal development and aging of the central nervous system. Staff

D866 Electron Microscopy (2 cr.) P: D851 or equivalent, and consent of instructor. Introduction to electron microscopy, including rationale of biological specimen preparation, general principles of instrument operation, and related techniques. Gattone

D867 Electron Microscopy Laboratory (cr. arr.) P or C: D866 and consent of instructor. Enrollment limited. The application of techniques for electron microscopy of biological specimens, including preparative procedures, instrument operation, and photographic processing. Miller
