BIOL 2031 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I

Credits: 4
Hours/Week: Lecture 3Lab 2
Course Description: This is the first of a two-semester lab science course. Human anatomy and physiology are studied using a body systems approach, with emphasis on the interrelationships between form and function at the gross and microscopic levels of organization. Homeostasis is an integrating theme throughout this course. Subjects considered include basic anatomical and directional terminology, fundamental concepts and principles of cell physiology, histology, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, endocrine, nervous, and hematopoietic systems. This course is intended for anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the anatomy and functioning of the human body.

Learning Outcomes
At the end of this course students will be able to:

  1. Apply descriptive anatomical and directional terminology
  2. Identify cellular structures and explain their respective functions.
  3. Identify and describe the basic tissues of the body, their locations, and explain their functions.
  4. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components and functions of the integumentary system.
  5. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the skeletal system and explain their functional roles in osteogenesis, repair, and body movement.
  6. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the muscular system and explain their functional roles in body movement, maintenance of posture, and heat production.
  7. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the eye and ear and explain their functional roles in vision, hearing and equilibrium. Students should also be able to identify and locate the receptors responsible for olfaction and gustation and briefly describe the physiology of smell and taste.
  8. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the nervous system and explain their functional roles in communication, control, and integration.
  9. Identify and describe the major gross and microscopic anatomical components of the endocrine system and explain the functional roles of their respective hormones in communication, control, and integration.
  10. Explain the basic concept of homeostasis and how homeostatic mechanisms apply to body systems.
  11. Describe the general function of blood as a component of the cardiovascular system.
  12. Explain blood grouping antigens and apply to compatibility of blood transfusions.
