Course Description:  This course builds on Anatomy and Physiology I.  Lecture topics include:  structure and function of the special sense organs, circulatory system, respiratory system, and digestive system, basic concepts of metabolism, excretory system, water and salt metabolism, and endocrine and reproductive systems.  The laboratory experience serves to enhance the topics covered in lectures.

General Education Goals: BIO 122 is affirmed in the following General Education Foundation Category:  Scientific Knowledge and Reasoning.  The corresponding General Education Goal is as follows:  Students will use the scientific method of inquiry through the acquisition of scientific knowledge.

Course Goals: Upon successful completion of this course, students should be able to do the following:

  1. explain the fundamental concepts and principles of physiology that are the basis of the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and systemic levels of the organization of the sensory, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive and metabolic, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems;
  2. explain the concept of complementarity of structure and function and use this concept to identify the basic structures and functions of the cardiovascular, respiratory, lymphatic and immunological, digestive and metabolic, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems; and
  3. explain the concept of homeostasis and how it applies to the functions of the special senses, cardiovascular, respiratory, lymphatic and immunological, digestive and metabolic, excretory, endocrine and reproductive systems.
