This course is a study of the major physiological phenomena as illustrated by members of the animal kingdom. Although mammalian physiology will be an important component of the course, the physiology of other vertebrates and invertebrates will also be considered to produce a broad comparative investigation. Lecture and laboratory will emphasize heart and muscle physiology, control and distribution of body fluids, hormonal regulation, sensory biology, and nervous function.
Offered: Fall term
