The Human Machine: Muscles, Bones & Evolution: This course explores the functional anatomy of the human musculoskeletal system from an evolutionary perspective. The human body is capable of moving in a unique combination of ways, including running extraordinary distances, throwing with incredible speed and accuracy, and climbing sheer rock faces. We will investigate the human machine piece-by-piece to find out how the bones and muscles of our bodies have evolved to allow this remarkable variety of movements. This course incorporates a range of topics, including anatomy, evolutionary biology, physiology, kinesiology, and basic biomechanics, and we will use these tools to understand how the human body works. Classes will consist of lectures and digital lab activities designed to help you fully engage with the course material. This course meets the Problem-Oriented/Theoretical requirement.
