Spring 2009 not offered
This course is designed for majors interested in further examining the cellular structure and function of mammalian organ systems. The focus for this course is the study of the cell as the fundamental structural and functional unit of which all living organisms are constructed. Each week's session will be divided into a lecture and laboratory component. Students will receive a 50-minute lecture on the cell biology and physiology of a particular tissue/system, followed by a two-hour laboratory to further examine the lecture topic microscopically. During the first part of the course, emphasis will be placed upon basic structure and function of the cell and its organelles. During the second part, organization of the cells into tissues and organs will be covered. One will gain from this course an understanding of the structure and function of the normal cell as it behaves in a particular system. This knowledge is essential for understanding the basic cellular mechanisms underlying disease.

||Fulfills a Major Requirement for: None
Readings will be from
Wheater's FUNCTIONAL HISTOLOGY: A TEXT AND COLOUR ATLAS, (4th edition)
and from a cell biology/physiology textbook to be announced. Students will be assigned advanced readings and preparation will be assumed for each class. Students will also receive laboratory manuals which will serve as a guide for the laboratory exercises.
|Examinations and Assignments: |
A mid-term and final (in class) are planned. Examinations will be a combination of written (short answer) and practical utilizing the microscopes.
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
This course is designed for MB&B, BIOL and NS&B majors.
