V201 Anatomy and Physiology of the Eye
3 credit hours
Instructor:  E. Rivron

This course provides an overview of the anatomy and physiology of
the human visual system, with particular emphasis on the anatomy of
the eye and visual pathway.  The brain and nervous system, skull and
orbit, and extraocular muscles and eye movements are also
discussed.  Laboratory work includes microscopic study of the monkey
eye, examination of the human skull and brain, and dissection of a
mammalian eye. There is no prerequisite, although an interest in
biology is helpful.  In addition to the students in the
Optician/Technician Program, the course attracts those who are
interested in the anatomical basis of perception or who are
considering a career in the visual sciences.

For COAS majors:  V201 has been approved to count for "outside
hours" in the category of unrestricted outside hour credit.
