Evolution, structure and function of animals:

Evolution and blueprints of animals; basic principles of embryogenesis and organogenesis; adaptation to aquatic life and transition to terrestrial life; evolution and biology of mammals and humans. Basic concepts of neurophysiology, sensory physiology, muscle physiology, respiration, circulation, digestion and hormone physiology.

Construction and function of animals:

Use of microscope, stereo magnifier, and dissecting instruments; independent dissection of animals at various levels of organization; documentation and presentation techniques; course objects: e.g., hydra, earthworm, cockroach, mouse; sensory physiology (experiments on the visual, auditory, and gustatory systems); detection and function of digestive enzymes; tested protocol.

Qualification Goals

Acquisition of basic knowledge in the areas of evolution and functional morphology of animals; development of basic phenomena of metabolic, nervous and sensory physiology. Practical use of microscope and stereo magnifier. Exemplary preparation of animal organisms, presentation of observations; exemplary electrophysiological and metabolic physiological measurements.
