BIOL 150ALKS - 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.
Prerequisites: BIOL 039L KS (or DANC160 PO or DANC163 SC); an introductory course in biology (BIOL 043L KS or BIOL 044L KS or equivalent); PHYS 030L KS or PHYS 033L KS (or equivalent) and permission of instructor. AISS may be used for the introductory biology and physics courses.
Offered: Every other year
