HHP-343 Physiology of Exercise I

This course will focus on the physiological changes that are involved when a human exercises. Beginning with homeostasis, the course will progress from cellular metabolism through the primary organ systems that are involved in exercise; with particular emphasis on the structure and function of skeletal and cardiac muscle, the heart and vascular system, the respiratory system, and the neural innervations of those systems. Concomitantly, the lectures will support HHP-343L (Physiology of Exercise Lab).
