Summary and Info
The laboratory experiences provided in this manual allow students to become familiar, in a way that cannot be achieved by lecture and text alone, with many fundamental concepts of physiology. Clinically-oriented lab exercises heighten student interest and demonstrate the health applications of physiology. Each lab is designed to provide hands-on experience in applying physiological concepts, and requires active participation to carry out the procedures and collect data, as well as critical thinking skills to answer the questions at the end of each exercise. The manual is self-contained, so students can prepare for the laboratory exercises and quizzes without having to refer to the textbook.
