BPK 326 - Functional Anatomy (4)

A detailed study of human anatomy with emphasis on clinically relevant applications in health, injury and disease. Virtual cadaver dissection, comparative laboratory work, and an introduction to medical imaging emphasize the layered, three-dimensional organization of the human body. Participation in all labs is required. Prerequisite: Admission to the major or honours program in Behavioural Neuroscience or Biomedical Physiology or Kinesiology. BPK 142, 201, 205 and at least 60 units. Behavioral Neuroscience Major and Honours students require BPK 142, 205, PSYC 280 and at least 60 units. BPK major and honours students who have taken BPK 325 must also take BPK 326. For students taking both of these courses, credit will only be given for BPK 326.

BPK 340 - Active Health: Behavior and Promotion (3)

Relationships among health, physical activity, and other health-associated behaviors are examined. In addition, the theories and models of health behavior, in the context of intervention and promotion strategies, are discussed. Pertinent background information is provided, concerning the influence of fitness on various disease states, as well as the epidemiology of health and exercise behaviors. Prerequisite: BPK 142, STAT 201 (or PSYC 201). Recommended: BPK 140.

BPK 301 - Biomechanics Laboratory (3)

A laboratory course on the quantitative biomechanical evaluation of human movement. Students will learn analysis techniques for quantifying kinematics and kinetics of body segments in athletes, normal populations, and special populations during activities such as walking and jumping. Experiments will look at the nature of muscular force generation, and the mechanical impedance properties of the musculoskeletal system, as well as patterns of muscle activation, using surface EMG. Prerequisite: PHYS 102 (or 121 or 126 or 141), BPK 201. Quantitative.
