Human Anatomy and Physiology Lab
The Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory is a dedicated space that supports the
two semester Human Anatomy and Physiology course (EX126 & EX127), as well as related
courses (e.g. EX115, EX314, etc.). This laboratory facilitates study of anatomy in
the bodily systems using various models, the dissection of specimens, and with cutting
edge technology to study virtual human cadavers, using online software and with a
55” Sectra interactive display capable of virtual human cadaver dissection. Additionally,
the lab also has the capacity for investigation of physiological functionality through
experimentation using Biopac Student Lab data acquisition units, which can measure
cardiovascular, muscular, pulmonary, neural responses.
