BIO 510. Ecology. (3 Credits)

BIO 530. Pharmacology. (3 Credits)

BIO 540. Advanced Botany. (3 Credits)

concentrates on botanical nomenclature, vegetative anatomy, floral anatomy, and morphology of vascular plants. The course includes a survey of vascular plants with an emphasis on identification of native flora. Implications of the presence or absence of each species in various biotic communities will be studied. 3 credits

Prerequisite: None

BIO 550. Human Anatomy. (6 Credits)

is an integrated approach to the gross anatomy of the human body, with particular emphasis on the musculoskeletal and peripheral nervous systems. Consideration will also be given to the study of cells, tissues, and organ systems. The laboratory portion of the course includes supervised dissection and/or examination of prosected human cadavers. Human anatomy is part of the professional curricula in Occupational and Physical Therapy. As such, this course helps students develop their knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human body, and to prepare them for service as health care professionals. 6 credits.

Prerequisites: Matriculation in the CUW Master of Occupational Therapy Program or Doctor of Physical Therapy Program, or consent of instructor.

Offered at: OL

BIO 556. Readings in Environ Science. (3 Credits)

This course covers a wide range of issues and problems such as air and water pollution, energy resources, climate change, acid rain, the greenhouse effect, wastes, and land/resource management. 3 crs.

Prerequisite: None

BIO 567. Ecology of the Tropics. (3 Credits)

is a field study of tropical organisms and ecosystems. This is a travel course that requires travel to the Caribbean. The influence of humans, culture, ecotourism, geology, and geography will be addressed. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

BIO 570. Ornithology. (3 Credits)

is a field oriented course designed to study birds in their natural habitats. Avian ecology, anatomy, physiology, and behavior as well as identification will be explored. 3 credits.

Prerequisite: None

BIO 575. BIOCHEMISTRY. (3 Credits)

BIO 580. BIOLOGY INTERNSHIP. (3 Credits)

BIO 585. Neuroscience. (5 Credits)

neuroscience is an integrated approach to the principles of human nervous system structure and function; including development and neural plasticity. The gross anatomy of the central nervous system and its vascular supply, as well as functional pathways and circuits and the cellular anatomy and physiology of neurons and synapses will be described. The course will cover somatosensory, motor (somatic and autonomic), limbic, cognitive, special sensory and ventricular systems and their interactions along with detailed discussion of the cranial nerves.  The laboratory focuses on gross examination of the human central nervous system, its surrounding connective tissues and blood vessels, and cranial nerves as well as diagnostic imaging of neurological disorders, video presentations of individuals with neurological dysfunction, and practice integrating lecture material into case examples. Neuroscience is part of the professional curriculum in OT and PT. As such, this course helps students develop their knowledge and understanding of the structure and function of the human central nervous system, and will include collaborative small group analysis of patient case studies for a better understanding of the impact of injury or illness on movement and occupation. Pre-requisites: admission into the MOT successful completion of BIO 550. 5 credits.
