Thermoregulation in Vertebrates Studied by Telemetry
This exercise, which is adaptable for introductory biology students or advanced physiology classes, uses a simple radio telemetry system for measuring body temperature from unrestrained and undisturbed animals. The advantages of this system over traditional probe-type thermometers are enormous. The laboratory will include practice in calibration of the transmitters, instruction in inserting the transmitter into the animals, and experience in interpreting the data obtained.

Were Dinosaurs Cold- or Warm-Blooded?: An Exercise in Scientific Inference
Both metabolic rates and brain masses are approximately 10 times as great in modern terrestrial warm-blooded animals (birds and mammals) as in cold-blooded terrestrial animals (reptiles) of the same body mass. This is one of several lines of evidence scientists have used to infer the mode of thermal regulation of dinosaurs and other extinct amniotes. In this exercise each student is assigned one of a number of dinosaurs. Students estimate brain mass from a drawing of a cranial endocast and body

Dog examination techniques
This presentation has been developed to introduce veterinary students to the process of carrying out a systematic physical examination in canine patients. It is designed to act as an introduction to these processes and procedures only, giving the students a framework from which to work as they develop and refine these skills throughout the veterinary course. Physical examination is a key skill which will be used throughout a veterinary surgeon's career and is a key determinant in selecting diag

The anatomy cookbook: A dissection guide with recipes
The Anatomy Cookbook has been written to accompany an anatomy and physiology course for bioengineers who would otherwise have missed out on the opportunity to study real organ systems at first hand. It is not an alternative to a standard anatomy text, it acts more as a laboratory supplement. The fun bit is that your kitchen takes the place of the dissection room. Each recipe provides an insight into one or more organs, and all you need to do is go to the supermarket and be prepared to think abou

"Experimental Microbial Genetics, Fall 2008"
" In this class, students engage in independent research projects to probe various aspects of the physiology of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14, an opportunistic pathogen isolated from the lungs of cystic fibrosis patients. Students use molecular genetics to examine survival in stationary phase, antibiotic resistance, phase variation, toxin production, and secondary metabolite production. Projects aim to discover the molecular basis for these processes using both classical and cutting

The Urinary System
The urinary system is concerned with the formation and elimination of urine. In an adult, more than 2,500 pints of blood passes through the kidneys each day. Blood enters via the renal arteries and is filtered to remove most of the waste products of metabolism. Seven pints of filtrate are produced every hour. Purified blood returns to the body circulation via the renal veins. The filtering process is carried out by more than two million tiny kidney units, or nephrons, which produce a highly conc

Anatomy of a Kidney
There is a very brief video with still images of the kidney. This is a quote from the video:
"This cross section of a kidney, almost three times life-size, shows its blood supply and one of the filter tubules, a nephron, highly magnified. The nephron is a highly specialized coiled tubule measuring up to one inch in length. There are more than one million nephrons in each kidney. They function as the kidney's filter units. The kidneys filter unwanted materials from the blood and regulate th
