This course is designed for undergraduate students in exercise science and other disciplines that wish to better understand the theoretical and applied concepts of exercise physiology in humans with cardiovascular (and other) diseases. Current research findings are stressed. Individual responses to exercise will be discussed and the impact of genetics, gender, age, and ethnicity on disease presentation and exercise outcomes will be addressed.
Independent Study for undergraduates working in cooperation with a faculty member.
This course is designed for graduate students who wish to better understand the physiology of the human circulatory system. We will progress from "the blood" through the "laws of hemodynamics", "the heart", to "pressures and volumes" and "regulation of specific tissues". We will examine changes in the cardiovascular system response to acute stressors such as exercise and chronic adaptations that occur with exercise training, aging and disease.
This course is an advanced seminar that will examine recent research findings in Exercise Physiology and related fields. Individual responses to exercise will be discussed and the impact of genetics, gender, age, and ethnicity on exercise/health related outcomes will be addressed. Prerequisite: restricted to Kinesiology graduates and undergraduates.
As exercise scientists, can we analyze systems in the human body & design strategies to improve quality of life? Our study of physiology aims to explain the physical & chemical mechanisms that regulate the body. These mechanisms maintain homeostasis, relatively constant conditions that are compatible with life. This semester we begin speaking the language of physiology to communicate effectively with clinicians, medical staff & other scientists.
