The physiology textbook to the left is the required textbook for Physiology/CTS in the spring and will be needed in the fall for your study of membrane physiology and muscle physiology during the CTS/Physiology course.



Laboratory Manual

We provide you with a copy of the laboratory manual for CTS. This collection of laboratory exercises relies on the use of an excellent collection of microscope slides, which we will provide to you in two boxes. The CTS web site is another resource that can be used during lab or outside of lab to assist you in understanding the laboratory exercises. The teaching laboratories are provided with all the necessary equipment (student microscopes and video microscopes connected to computers). The lab manual references individual microscope slides. Additional information about your microscopes and the teaching laboratories is found under the Web page entitled: "Laboratory Exercises."
