HUMBIO 4A: The Human Organism

Integrative Physiology: Neurobiology, endocrinology, and organ system function, control, and regulation. HUMBIO 4A and HUMBIO 4B are designed to be taken concurrently. Periodically there will be lectures that address related content in the two courses. Concurrent enrollment is strongly encouraged and is necessary for majors to meet recommended declaration deadlines. Human Biology majors are required to take the Human Biology Core Courses for a letter grade.
Terms: Spr | Units: 5 | UG Reqs: WAY-SMA, GER: DB-NatSci

HUMBIO 4B: Behavior, Health, and Development

Research and theory on human behavior, health, and life span development. How biological factors and cultural and educational practices influence cognition, behavior, and health across the lifespan. Introduction to research methods, including study design, statistical analysis, and causal inference. HUMBIO 4B, with HUMBIO2B and HUMBIO 3B, satisfies the Writing in the Major (WIM) requirement for students in Human Biology. HUMBIO 4A and HUMBIO 4B are designed to be taken concurrently. Periodically there will be lectures that address related content in the two courses. Concurrent enrollment is strongly encouraged and is necessary for majors to meet recommended declaration deadlines. Human Biology majors are required to take the Human Biology Core Courses for a letter grade.

Instructors: Mabry, M. (PI)

HUMBIO 5E: Science Education in Human Biology

In this seminar, students will learn about research on science education. They will use this knowledge to create and analyze teaching material such as section plans, exams, and problem sets. Material produced in this course will be related to the topics covered in the core course of the Program in Human Biology. Students will experience and practice various teaching styles.

HUMBIO 35: Your Body at Stanford: The Physiology of College

A lot happens at college besides studying. As a Stanford student, you will experience a new way of living and you will have to make decisions that can impact your health and your success at Stanford and beyond. The goal of this new class is to provide you with a foundation of knowledge that can optimize your health and performance throughout college. This is an applied physiology class that will be open to all students with or without science backgrounds. Think of it as a user manual for your body while you are at Stanford. The class will be partly lecture, partly discussion and partly activity based so you can learn by seeing, hearing, and doing. Topics will include your body's response to physical activity (or lack thereof), nutrition, sleep, stress, alcohol, caffeine, drugs, and relationships. Throughout the class, you will be made aware of campus resources related to these topics in case you ever need them. No prerequisites.

HUMBIO 82A: Qualitative Research Methodology

This course introduces students to core concepts and methods of qualitative research. Through a variety of hands-on learning activities, readings, field experiences, class lectures and discussions, students will explore the process and products of qualitative inquiry. This course is designed particularly to support Human Biology undergraduates in designing, proposing and preparing for Honors Thesis research; students may use the course assignments and office hours to support individual research needs (e.g., proposal design, IRB protocol, pilot work).

HUMBIO 112: Conservation Biology: A Latin American Perspective (BIO 144, BIO 234)

Principles and application of the science of preserving biological diversity. Conceptually, this course is designed to explore the major components relevant to the conservation of biodiversity, as exemplified by the Latin American region. The conceptual frameworks and principles, however, should be generally applicable, and provide insights for all regions of the world. All students will be expected to conduct a literature research exercise leading to a written report, addressing a topic of their choosing, derived from any of the themes discussed in class.

HUMBIO 113: The Human-Plant Connection

The intertwined biologies of humans and plants, particularly the ways in which people and plants have imposed selection pressures and ecological change on one another. Topics include evolution and basic plant structure; plant domestication; effects of agriculture on human health and physiology; plants in traditional and contemporary diets; and human influences on plant biology through genetic manipulation and environmental change. Class meetings center on journal articles. Final project includes written and multimedia presentations.

HUMBIO 114: Global Change and Emerging Infectious Disease (EARTHSYS 114, EARTHSYS 214, ESS 213)

The changing epidemiological environment. How human-induced environmental changes, such as global warming, deforestation and land-use conversion, urbanization, international commerce, and human migration, are altering the ecology of infectious disease transmission, and promoting their re-emergence as a global public health threat. Case studies of malaria, cholera, hantavirus, plague, and HIV.

HUMBIO 123E: Health Economics & Policy: exploring health disparities, child health & health care spending

This course addresses issues related to population health, health care, and health policy, using tools from empirical and theoretical economics. We will study topics such as the demand for health care, socioeconomic and racial/ethnic disparities in population health outcomes, health insurance design, determinants of health care spending, technological change in the health care sector, pharmaceuticals, the opioid crisis, and public health insurance policy. Throughout the course, we will learn about research methodology that will help us to distinguish correlation from causation, and think critically about the role of the government and public policy. The course will feature concepts from microeconomic theory, statistics, and econometrics. Prerequisites: HUMBIO 3B and HUMBIO 4B or equivalent and statistics requirements or consent of instructor.
