HSCI-350 Physiological Adaptations
This is a seminar course during which observed changes in human physiology during extended habitation in extreme environments will be analyzed and discussed during class in terms of disease categories, preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in relation to environmental and occupational health. Class discussions are led by faculty and students taking the course on selected areas of physiological adaptation. Presentations by students and faculty include critical reviews of the literature and presentation of new observations such as student generated data of physiological changes to extreme environments obtained using a human patient simulator or physiological monitoring/measuring devices and or instruments in discovery environments created by course participants including applicable reference data from the published literature.
Prerequisites: HSCI - 101, -102, CHEM-001, -002 or permission of the instructor.
