Course Description

Kinesiology & Applied Anatomy

HPHP 301 examines the anatomical structures and mechanical aspects of human movement. Basic neuromuscular and biomechanical principles are introduced. Emphasis is placed on understanding the functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal and articular systems; the course will culminate in students utilizing knowledge of these systems to evaluate posture, locomotion, and a complex motion of their choice. Laboratory exercises concentrate on the role of muscle and joint action during basic movements. Students will be required to apply their knowledge of anatomy towards understanding individual joint function as well as the integrated function of several joints during complex activities such as normal human locomotion. Prerequisites: C- or better in BIOL 150 Pre- or Co-requisite: PHYS 107 4 credits (3 lecture hours and 2 laboratory hour per week), fall semester
