Anatomy and physiology students dissected a cow eye on Thursday, Nov. 3.
“The class went very well, only a small number of students can be squeamish. Most were interested in seeing the real structures they have been reading from the book,” anatomy and physiology instructor Stuart Nurre said.
Earlier in the term students dissected a cow’s brain . Nurre wants students to gain a better understanding of the relationship between class lectures and hands-on dissection.” The most rewarding part of teaching is when students have that “aha” moment, it means I have done my job” Nurre said.
Anatomy and physiology students have one last dissection this term — a cow’s heart.
