Anatomy & Physiology of Movement


Introduction to Anatomy & Physiology

  • The cell, the structure and function of the cell and how the body is interconnected not just seperate individual building blocks, with Matt Cotterill

  • Brief overview of each of the predominant systems of the body

  • How the nervous dictates how the body moves, thinks and feels by acting as the control system of the body from the brain through the spinal cord to the peripheries and how the lungs heart and blood stream deliver nutrients around the body

  • How the body regulates the health of the blood stream, fights off infection and expels infections through our lymph nodes.

  • How the endorcrine system regulates the body over all through it's glands and hormones and enables the body communicate to different areas through blood stream and nervous system.

  • How the cells form together and form the system that enables us absorb nutrients from our food and liquids and links to our blood stream to deliver the nutrients.

  • How the body excretes its waste products through the urinary system and helps clean up the body's digestive process.

  • How we reap the genetic benefits of members of the opposite sex to create a new human life.

  • Structure of Bone and stages of Bone growth

  • How our bones are classified in relation to their structure and function, and how they develop from fetus through adolescence into young adult hood, and how they slowly deteriorate as we age.

  • Functions of The Skeletal System

  • Classifications of Joints

  • How each joint provides a different function but shares a common thread through its classification of its components

  • Classification & Components of Muscle Tissue

  • The structure and function of muscles, how they contract at a cellular level with the Sliding Filament Theory explained, concentric, eccentric and isometric contractions.

  • Integumentary System

  • How the skin forms our outer protective layer, the components f the integumentary system, the layers of the thick and thin skin explained and how the skin functions to absorb nutrients and excretes waste and enable us sense the environment around us & our experience with pressure temperature & pain.
