Human Anatomy and Physiology II
Gain an even greater knowledge of the human body. This course covers more advanced topics such as the basics of histology, the different senses, cellular metabolism and human life span.
In this course, you'll cover some more advanced topics that weren't covered in Human Anatomy and Physiology I. You'll start with basic histology—the study of the different tissues in the body. From there, you'll move on to a discussion of the different senses. You'll also delve into the important topic of cellular metabolism—the chemical reactions that occur in cells.
Then you'll turn your focus to the human life span. You'll also discover ways to slow down the aging process. By the end of this course, you'll have an even greater appreciation of the complexity and wonder of the human body!
