Genes + Evolution Lab
Course No. BMA214L Credits: 0.0
Lab required for BMA214 Genes + Evolution. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Course No. BMA305 Credits: 3.0
Reptiles (crocodilians, turtles, lizards, snakes) and amphibians (frogs, salamanders) have developed unique mechanisms for dealing with their environment. Yet their structure, function, and behavior are governed by their ancestry and by certain principles which apply to all living organisms. This course will cover many aspects of amphibian and reptile biology, including anatomy, evolution, geographical distribution, physiological adaptations to their environment, reproductive strategies, moisture-, temperature-, and food-relations, sensory mechanisms, predator-prey relationships, communication (vocal, chemical, behavioral), population biology, chemistry and physiological actions of venoms, and pathophysiology and treatment of snakebite. Laboratory Sessions will be devoted to learning species identification by means of dichotomous keys, discussion of the natural history of OhioÕs amphibians and reptiles, survey techniques for determining population size and structure, and observations of the behavior of live reptiles and amphibians. Several daytime (Saturday or Sunday) field trips are held as the weather warms, one nighttime field trip is held in late March to observe salamander migrations, and there is a one-day field trip to either the Columbus Zoo or the Toledo Zoo Reptile House. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Course No. BMA346C Credits: 3.0
Gross anatomy of the human body. Two lectures and one laboratory demonstration per week. Prerequisite: BIOL 216 or BIOL 251. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
Human Anatomy + Physiology I
Course No. BMA116 Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Principles of Biology
This course is the first course in a two-semester sequence that covers most systems of the human body and covers homeostasis, membrane structure and function, membrane transport, tissue types, the integumentary system, neurons and nerves, the central nervous system, the peripheral nervous system, special senses (vision, hearing and equilibrium, taste, smell), and the cardiovascular system. Prerequisite: BMA114. Cross-registration at CWRU required. Offered fall.
Human Anatomy + Physiology II
Course No. BMA117 Credits: 3.0
Prerequisite(s) Human Anatomy + Physiology I
This course is the second course in a two-semester sequence that covers most systems of the human body and covers respiratory system, endocrine system, digestive system, lymphatic system, immune system, urinary system, acid-base regulation, and reproductive systems. Prerequisite: BMA116. Cross-registration at CWRU required. Offered spring.
Human Biology in Health + Disease
Course No. BMA106 Credits: 3.0
This is an introduction to biological principles. Topics include discussion of cell structure, cell function, and physiology of digestion, circulation, excretion, and coordination in normal and disease states. Cross-registration at CSU required. Offered spring.
Human Forms: Head, Hands, Feet
Course No. BMA255 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Elizabeth Halasz
This course is open to all majors who are interested in learning how to visually describe the (1) Head: facial proportion/anatomy, form, construction and expression (significance of meaning and context); (2) Hands: proportion/anatomy, gestural qualities & significance of meaning and context, biomechanics of motion; (3) Feet: proportion/anatomy, biomechanics of motion, the relationship to ground and weight emphasis. This Course provides observational drawing skills in: portraiture, hands and feet in a variety of different mediums, perspectives (from orthogonal interpretation to dramatic vantage points and foreshortening.) This course is designed to benefit majors in Drawing, Painting, Illustration, Biomedical Art, Animation, Video, Game Design, and is open as an elective to all majors. Projects include assignments and exercises which incorporate the specific subjects of Heads, Hands, and Feet. The projects involve principles of realism, observational accuracy, proportion/anatomy, composition, creative context of meaning and emotion. Offered fall.
Human Learning and the Brain
Course No. BMA301 Credits: 3.0
This course focuses on the question, "How does the human brain learn?" Through assigned readings, extensive class discussions, and a major paper, each student will explore personal perspectives on learning. Specific topics include, but are not limited to: the brain's cycle of learning; neocortex structure and function; emotion and limbic brain; synapse dynamics and changes in learning; images in cognition; symbolic brain (language, mathematics, music); memory formation; and creative thought and brain mechanisms. The major paper will be added to each student's SAGES writing portfolio. In addition, near the end of the semester, each student will make an oral presentation on a chosen topic. Cross-registration at CWRU required.
