Cardiovascular Physiology Teaching: Computer Simulations vs. Animal Demonstrations.
Samsel, Richard W.; And Others
Advances in Physiology Education, v11 n1 pS36-S46 Jun 1994
At the introductory level, the computer provides an effective alternative to using animals for laboratory teaching. Computer software can simulate the operation of multiple organ systems. Advantages of software include alteration of variables that are not easily changed in vivo, repeated interventions, and cost-effective hands-on student access. However, simulations miss intangible aspects of experimental physiology. Contains 13 references. (PVD)
