Our next topic will be a loooooong one – Human Physiology will last the rest of the semester. We’ll start with the core material, which is Topic 6. You can download the syllabus guide here: Topic 6 – syllabus outline.
The first section is on the digestive system. You can get a head start by reading your textbook – Chapter 19. We’ll cover the theory first, and end the week by dissecting a complete digestive system. When will you have the chance to stick your hand inside a goat’s stomach again, or simulate peristalsis on some real intestines?
