Learn about human anatomy and physiology from head to toe! We're going to spend three classes going over the important structures and functions of the human body.
Each of the three classes will cover a different set of organ systems, with a focus on an overarching theme. Each class can function as an independent entity, so while the class works best as a three-course unit, you don't have to take all three.
July 16: "The Communicating Body" - In Part I, we'll cover sensory systems, the nervous system, hormones, and blood. You'll learn how the body receives, interprets, and responds to messages from both the outside world and from within the body itself.
July 23: "The Moving, Breathing, Living Body" - In Part II, we'll cover musculoskeletal, respiratory, and cardiovascular systems. What does fitness mean for your muscles? For your heart? For your lungs?
July 30: "The Fundamental Needs: The Eating, Drinking, Sexing Body" - In Part III, we'll cover urinary, digestive/metabolism, and reproductive systems. Everyone loves eating and drinking and sexing, so what could be better than learning about nutrition and digestion, pregnancy, erections and peeing?
