Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In this laboratory course, students carry out experiments about physiological functions of the oral cavity and the whole body, bioactive properties, and actions of drug using laboratory animals in vivo, extraction organs, purified enzymes, and genes. Students learn experimental procedures and evaluation methods for experimental data. Text and/or supplemental materials helpful for detailed understanding of experimental design are handed out before each laboratory practice.

Students can use texts prepared by laboratories. 
PC or AV used in
Texts, Handouts, Audio and Video teaching resources  
Suggestions on
Preparation and
Text and/or supplemental materials helpful for detailed understanding of experimental design are handed out before each laboratory practice. 
Requirements Students are not allowed to be absent from classes.
There are no supplementary classes for the student who is absent.
The student who is absent without notice may fail to earn the credit.
Grading Method Each student's achievement is assessed totally by attendance, relative performance in practice, experimental report submitted, presentation, and examination.
Each laboratory (Biochemistry, Physiology, or Pharmacology) evaluates students separately. Students must get passing marks in all the three laboratory classes to get the credit. 
Message Understanding of physiological functions of the oral cavity through laboratory classes. 
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
