BIOL150ALKS - Functional Human Anatomy and Biomechanics: Limbs and Movement

A two-part course offered by faculty of the Keck Science department and Western University of Health Sciences; the two courses may not be taken concurrently.

Developmental and evolutionary principles of limb design and function; mechanical properties of bone, soft tissues, muscle, nerve; inter-relationships between structure, biomechanics, and function; open chain versus closed chain kinematics; mobility of limb girdles; mechanisms of injury and prevention. Laboratory involves dissection of human cadavers. This course has a laboratory fee.
