BME 512 Engineering Physiology Lab I

This laboratory course serves as an interactive introduction to human physiology from engineering perspective. Students will learn to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to physiology. The course also addresses societal and ethical responsibility associated with the development, testing, and implementation of biomedical devices or treatments. Some labs will use Simulink (MATLAB) to model physiological phenomena as control systems, and some labs will involve hands on experience with medical devices to measure and analyze various biosignals. Topics and systems covered in this course include homeostasis, central nervous system, peripheral nervous system, visual system, proprioception, muscles, electromyography, pressure mapping, balance assessment. Prerequisites: with instructor permission.
