This week we're beginning a set of labs on humans as biological
entities ... and a set of labs in which you should use the skills and
insights you've developed as a researcher in past labs to develop and
carry out your own lines of investigation.
We will introduce you to some techniques for observing the pulse, and
make a few observations on it together. It is then your task, in groups
of three, to develop an interesting inquiry using those techniques to
explore the regulation of the pulse ("who's in control?" - "the difference between animate and conscious
"?), carry it out, and report your study (motivation, observations, interpretations) here in the lab forum area.
