BM1061 - Anatomy and Physiology for Sport and Exercise Science 1
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Veterinary & Biomedical Sciences (pre 2015)
This subject will introduce the principles of human body structure and function as
relevant for students of sport & 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 upper limb will then be undertaken. Physiological process and anatomical
structure will be studied for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems together
with the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax. 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.
