  • Prerequisites:

    Admission to the major or honours program in Behavioural Neuroscience or Biomedical Physiology or Kinesiology. BPK 142, 201, 205 and at least 60 units. Behavioral Neuroscience Major and Honours students require BPK 142, 205, PSYC 280 and at least 60 units.

Description

CALENDAR DESCRIPTION:

Pursues a systematic study of human anatomy with emphasis on functional applications. A comparative study of organs and body systems using laboratory dissections to provide an understanding of the three dimensional organization of the human body. Participation in all labs is required. Students with credit for BPK 325 may not repeat this course for further credit.

COURSE DETAILS:

This course will be entirely offered via remote learning, with no in-person elements in Fall 2020.

 

LECTURES will be ASYNCHRONOUS: they will be uploaded as videos on Canvas.

 

EXCEPTION: Multiple choice exams (5) will be held in the lecture timeslot.

 

LABS will be SYNCHRONOUS: they will be held at the scheduled times each Monday and Wednesday and conducted via Zoom.

 

(Note that the term-specific schedule is found on Canvas, on the Calendar.)

 

The course is organized by regional (not systemic) anatomy. Each Unit of the course follows a similar organizational pattern: we study surface anatomy, gross anatomy (at various levels of dissection), and sectional anatomy (via both physical sections and medical imaging). Our study is linked to and

assessed via functional and clinical anatomy. We incorporate all systems within each anatomical region; our emphasis in the limbs is musculo-skeletal anatomy, but we also cover fascia, nerves, and vasculature in the limbs, with an emphasis on neural control of movement and clinical ramifications of nerve injury. Topics covered include:

 

  • Introduction to the study of anatomy: planes, terms of reference, and definitions
  • The thoracic cage
  • The chest and back
  • The upper limb (including detailed study of the brachial plexus and the shoulder)
  • The abdominal wall
  • The abdominal viscera
  • The pelvic girdle and pelvic floor
  • The pelvic organs
  • The gluteal region
  • The lower limb (including study of the hip, knee and ankle)
  • The head and neck (including the brain, the face, and the cranial nerves)

COURSE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL GOALS:

At the end of BPK 326, successful students will be able to:

 

  1. Discern and describe tissues and structures across anatomical regions and systems and link structure to function.
  2. Describe anatomy accurately and accessibly to diverse audiences, including colleagues, clients, patients, and friends and family outside of this course and the university.
  3. Interpret anatomical sections (physical and digital) to identify structures and describe their relationship to other structures.
  4. Teach colleagues about a complex aspect of human anatomy in a short (2-3 minute) and engaging You Tube video.

Materials

MATERIALS + SUPPLIES:

  1. In addition to Canvas, Top Hat registration is required. (Top Hat is a classroom response system that allows users to participate in quizzes and tests using their own devices. You can use your laptop, web-enabled smartphone, tablet, or cellphone with text messaging.) Top Hat registration (in Top Hat Classroom plus Top Hat Test) costs $40.

 

  1. We are using a Top Hat Textbook, customized for the course. This is the only required textbook, and it costs $45.

 

  1. There is NO LONGER a $27 supplemental course fee to help cover the costs of lab materials and supplies.

Department Undergraduate Notes:

It is the responsibility of the student to keep their BPK course outlines if they plan on furthering their education.

Registrar Notes:

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html

TEACHING AT SFU IN FALL 2020

Teaching at SFU in fall 2020 will be conducted primarily through remote methods. There will be in-person course components in a few exceptional cases where this is fundamental to the educational goals of the course. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.

Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (caladmin@sfu.ca or 778-782-3112).
