Covers the basic principles and mechanisms of animal physiology. Emphasis is placed upon nervous systems, sensory mechanisms, endocrine systems, intracellular signaling mechanisms, and muscle contractility. Homeostatic mechanisms and the systems responsible for supply of the internal environment are also discussed. The laboratory consists of experimental procedures of cellular physiology as well as instrument facilitated human and animal physiology investigations.
