Physiology of Reproduction (3)
Reproductive physiology of the higher vertebrates. The estrous, menstrual, and ovulation cycles; pregnancy; and parturition and lactation. Emphasis on growth areas in the field of reproductive physiology research.
Prerequisites: Organic chemistry, vertebrate physiology.
Equine Exercise Physiology (3)
Physiological and environmental factors associated with exercise in the horse.
Prerequisite: An introductory course in physiology.
The role of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland in reproduction, stress, growth, biological rhythms, drug addiction, and immunity at the organismic, cellular, and molecular levels.
Reproductive and Developmental Toxicology (4)
The effects of environmental toxicants on reproductive and
developmental systems throughout the life span in humans, animal
models, and wildlife and the numerous cellular, molecular, and
physiological mechanisms involved.
Prerequisite: Background in physiology, especially physiology of reproduction.
Special Problems in Endocrinology and Animal Biosciences (BA,BA)
