Course Description

This course is an advanced physiology course that takes a systems approach to the physiological changes that occur with exercise. There will be an emphasis on the myocardial, circulatory, muscular, ventilatory, and respiratory adaptations associated with physical training, and the unique characteristics of elite athletes. The course will also include a study of the biochemical adaptations that occur during acute exercise or as a result of prolonged exercise training, with emphasis on the biochemical regulators of intermediary metabolism.

Instructor(s): Kristin Stanford

Prerequisites: BI 200; previous coursework in physiology is essential (BI316, BI303 , BI554 or part of an introductory course). Biochemistry is strongly recommended.
