Models and Mindsets for Teaching Neurophysiology
This mini-workshop presentation involves hands-on activities in which participants put together and manipulate home-made, 3-D models of voltage-gated spike channels (both Na+ and K+ channels). The mod...
Metabolism and Oxygen Consumption in Aquatic Organisms
I use this lab in a low enrollment junior/senior level animal physiology course. We also examine the terrestrial metabolism/oxygen consumption of lizards and mice using small animal chambers. The stu...
What is the Role of Salt in Taste?
This exercise can be readily incorporated with the standard taste mapping exercise taught in most Anatomy and Physiology laboratory classes and adds an experimental approach to the study of taste.
Efficiency of Arm Movement: A Study of Leverage, ATP Utilization, and Sarcomere Shortening in the Brachium
A sequence of four experiments have been developed with NSF funds to teach concepts of efficiency of arm movement. They attempt to correlate the chemical energy input with the mechanical energy outp...
Lights, Bean Plants, Action: Starch Printing, a Student Exercise
This exercise examines starch production in young bean leaves.
Sensory Biology: Examination of Electroretinograms from Photoreceptors in Insects
In this exercise, students plot the course of dark adaptation as reflected by the magnitude of the electroretinogram response.
Freshwater Sponges as Indicators of Water Pollution: An Investigative Undergraduate Lab
This lab uses freshwater sponges as model organisms to examine the biological effects of water pollution. Specifically, the focus of this laboratory module is on the effects that chemicals of enviro...
Web-based Physiology Laboratory Simulations
I have devised several multimedia laboratory simulations with an intuitive user-interface, so that students can work independently (or in small groups) and learn at their own pace and depth. The sim...
Investigative Laboratory on “Filling In” by the Brain of the Blind Spot of the Visual Field
An investigative laboratory based on experiments with the blind spot can be adapted for students at almost any level of preparation. We have used it to introduce experimental science to students wit...
Exploring Weight Regulation using Stella Modeling Software
Weight loss is a high-interest subject among most students. This exercise is used in introductory biology laboratories at Clemson University. It asks students to determine their Body Mass Index, and...
