Handouts and web page reading will be assigned. Preparatory materials and laboratory procedures are available on the web page. Please read these materials in preparation for lab.

Labs and Reports

Experiments will be conducted in groups. Note, many of these labs involve physiologic measurements and will not always give clean "textbook" results. It is valuable to process your data at you go in order to verify that you are making your measurements properly.

Lab reports will be written separately. Grading for the course will be based primarily on lab reports but also on lab performance. Lab reports will be due one week from the final session for that particular lab. For half of the labs, full Lab reports will be required and will be due one week from the final session for that particular lab. For the other labs, an abbreviated report will be required, answering a few questions and supplying some key results. Late reports will be penalized.

The preferred method of submitting your lab reports is using the ClassesV2 web server. In ClassesV2, go to your "Dropbox" and "add" a file. Upload a single file containing all text and graphs. Please use a filename containing both your name and the name of the lab. If you submit a hardcopy, please staple or clip together firmly all pages that you hand in, including printouts, if any.

Please use the format described below:
