BI 339 Physiology of Exercise and Extremes

This course will examine the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ level physiology of the function of animals, includinghumans, during exercise and in extreme conditions while focusing on the integration of physiologicalsystems to maintain homeostasis of internal environments. Emphasis is placed upon current andhistorical experimental evidence of the physiological mechanisms of energy capture and expenditure,integrative adaptations of oxygen capture and delivery, and plasticity of functional and control systems in response to their use in conditions of physiological stress.

Prerequisite: BI211 and BI242 or written permission of the instructor.
