Human Anatomy & Physiology 1
Human anatomy deals with how all parts of the human body interact to form a functional whole. The study of anatomy is separate from the study of physiology. While anatomy studies the structure of the parts of an organism, physiology is concerned with the way those parts function together. For example, an anatomist may study the types of tissues found in different parts of the heart, while a physiologist may study how the heart regulates blood flow to supply oxygen to other organs in the body. While anatomy and physiology study different aspects of human biology, together they provide a more complete picture of what the human body is and how it works.
This course is designed to give you a brief overview of gross anatomy and physiology of the human body.
Topics covered in this course include:
* Identify superficial muscles of the human body as well as the origins and insertions of those muscles.
* Types of bones, levers and functions of bones in the human body.
* Gross physiology: body homeostasis, and organ systems in the body.
* Brief look at cellular physiology and how the cells of the human body are made up and their functions.
This course is a pre-requisite course for regional human anatomy 1 & 2, physiology 1 & 2 and functional fitness training and kinesiology.
