BIOL-151 Human Anatomy and Physiology I

Credits 4 / 3 Contact Hours
Pre-requisite: Placement into RDNG-030 (ACSR-030), completion of ELAP-110 with a minimum grade of 2.0, or successful completion of RDNG-016 or ACLT-074 with a minimum grade of 3.0.  Co-requisite: Student must enroll in one section of BIOL-151L . Note: A background in High School Biology and/or Chemistry strongly recommended. Lab enrollment is not required for
e-Learning (WWW) sections as lab is included in those sections.
This course addresses the structure and function of the human body emphasizing systems including nervous endocrine integumentary skeletal and muscular. The concept of homeostasis and tissue structure will also be discussed. Lab work includes microscopic study anatomy of both fresh and preserved organs examination of organ systems models and student participation in physiologic experiments.

Course Outcomes
1. Explain the structural organization of the human body utilizing the language of anatomy 2. Explain the functional characteristics of living organisms and discuss negative feedback systems and their role in homeostasis 3. Identify and characterize the structure of epithelial, connective, muscular, and nervous tissue 4. Explain the functions of the integumentary system and discuss the layers and appendages of the skin 5. Discuss the organization of the nervous system and explain the neurophysiology involved with neuronal communication 6. Identify the regions of the brain and spinal cord and discuss the functions of these areas. Explain protective features of the central nervous system. 7. Identify the cranial nerves, spinal nerves, and major nerves of the human body and describe their function. Describe the components of a reflex arc and its relationship to homeostasis. 8. Discuss the structure and function of the autonomic nervous system and identify the neurotransmitters and receptors involved with communication. 9. Discuss the structure and function of the special senses including olfaction, gustation, hearing, equilibrium, and vision 10. Discuss the function of an endocrine gland and compare the four chemical classes of hormones. Identify the major endocrine glands, hormones produced, and the functions of these hormones 11. Explain the histology and physiology of bone. Compare intramembranous and endochondral ossification and discuss bone remodeling and calcium homeostasis 12. Identify the bones of the axial and appendicular skeleton. Identify the major bone markings associated with articulations, nervous system structures, muscle attachments, and blood vessels 13. Classify joints on the basis of structure and function and identify examples of these joints. Describe the structure, types, and movements permitted at synovial joints. 14. Discuss the gross and microscopic structure of skeletal muscle. Characterize the microscopic structure of cardiac muscle and smooth muscle. Explain the physiology involved with muscle contraction and muscle metabolism. 15. Identify the major skeletal muscles, their attachment sites, and their action.
