BM1061 - Anatomy and Physiology for Sport and Exercise Science 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Public Health, Medical & Vet Sciences
This subject will introduce the principles of human body structure and function as
relevant for students of sport and exercise science. This includes an introduction
to cells and tissues, the nervous system and the function and relationships of bone,
muscle, and joints. A detailed study of the gross anatomical structure and functional
anatomy of the skull, neck, vertebral column, and upper limb will then be undertaken.
An integrated understanding of the human body will be achieved with practical sessions,
including the study of human cadaveric material, and functional and clinical case-studies
to facilitate the integration of material and the correlation of structure to function.
- To discuss the relationship between the organisational levels of the human body from
the cellular to the organ level;
- To identify and describe the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the
musculoskeletal and nervous systems;
- To identify and describe the structure of the neck, vertebral column and upper limbs;
- To critically apply anatomical and physiological knowledge to a human bioscience discipline.
