The human body and life is an incredible system involving processes many science or health educators should explore to a greater degree. This introductory course looks at the foundations of the human body and principles of physiology to give you a better understanding of how they work together. You will cover basic chemistry and cellular anatomy, major organ systems, and even how genetics work in passing DNA to future generations.
In this course, you will:
- Review chemistry basics and atoms as the building blocks of life,
- Compare systematic anatomy and the physical structures of the human body, and
- Discover our 11 organ systems and their essential functions,
- Conceptualize homeostasis and negative feedback as the foundations to human physiology.
