Class Objectives
/Class Outline
In this laboratory course, students carry out experiments on the physiological functions of the oral cavity and the whole body. Students learn experimental procedures and evaluation methods for experimental data. Textbooks and/or supplemental materials helpful for detailed understanding of experimental design are handed out before each laboratory practice. 
Class Schedule Oral Physiology:
1【Bb9】Introduction and Explanation (Sugita, Kitagawa, Sakayori)
