PHYSL 310 - Experimental Techniques in Physiology

Modern techniques in Physiology (involving cell biology, molecular, histological and live cell imaging, and non-invasive experimentation) will be discussed in theory and demonstrated/utilized in a series of laboratory experiments. Student participation as subjects may be required in some labs. Prerequisites: Successful completion of PHYSL 210 or PHYSL 212 and 214 and consent of Department.


PHYSL 457 - Exercise Physiology

Acute and chronic adaptations to various modalities of exercise. Focus will be on metabolism, muscular, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. An introduction to clinical exercise physiology will also be covered. Prerequisites: PHYSL 212 and 214, or 210 and consent of Department.


PHYSL 464 - Advanced Topics in Physiology Research II

Taken in conjunction with PHYSL 463, this course is open to undergraduate students in the Honors Physiology program. Students will undertake self-directed research and provide a critical review of recent literature in one specific field of Physiology (to be identified by the student in consultation with the course coordinators). Registration package and further information are available. Prerequisites: PHYSL 210 or PHYSL 212/214, PHYSL 463 and consent from the course coordinators.


PHYSL 466 - Undergraduate Tutorial

Individual study. Restricted to students in the Physiology Honors Program.
