BIOL129 KS - Neuromuscular Physiology in Health and Disease

This course will examine the pathophysiology of neuromuscular diseases and the general principles underlying how the nervous and musculoskeletal systems interact with the environment to produce coordinated movement in humans and non-human animals. Areas of discussion will include how disease states influence biomechanics of locomotion, the molecular basis for muscle contraction and the neuromuscular junction, spinal pathways, proprioceptive and other sensory feedback, and central processing in the primary motor cortex, basal ganglia, and cerebellum.

Prerequisites: BIOL 043L KS  and BIOL 044L KS ; Recommended courses: BIOL 131L KS , BIOL 039L KS , or permission of instructor.
