Building upon MH1061 Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology, this subject will provide a more detailed study of the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system, with an emphasis on the aspects that are most relevant to Sports and Exercise Science. The subject will comprise a detailed study of the gross anatomical structure and functional anatomy of the lower limbs, together with the musculoskeletal anatomy of the thorax, trunk, skeletal muscle, and neuromuscular function. The anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems will also be studied. The emphasis will be on gaining an integrated understanding of the human body through practical sessions, including the study of human cadaveric material, and functional case studies to facilitate the integration and correlation of the material.
