KIN 101 - INTRODUCTION TO HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY
Course Description: An introduction to human physiology from the cellular to systemic level with special emphasis on systems that adapt to exercise stress.
Note: Credit will be granted for only one of KIN 101 or KINS 102.
KIN 103 - INTEGRATIVE HUMAN PHYSIOLOGY
Course Description: An introduction to Integrative Human Physiology. Focuses on the regulation, control, and integration of cellular functions in the human body with special emphasis on systems that respond to exercise stress.
Prerequisite: KIN 101.
KIN 302 - HUMAN MOTOR CONTROL - The neural control of movement
Course Description: This course takes a mechanistic approach to the study of the neural control of human movement. Information will be presented on how the nervous system controls rhythmic and voluntary movements. Roles for signals from the brain and sensory receptors will be described. Selected movement disorders will also be discussed.
Course Requirements: The course will require a basic knowledge of human neurophysiology and motor behaviour such as that obtained in KIN 102: Human Physiology and KIN 203: Skill Acquisition and Performance.
KIN 490/491 - PROFESSIONAL PRACTICUM
Course Description: PEDS 490 is a half-time practicum that may run for a single term for 20 hours per week, two terms for 10 hours per week, or the equivalent time. KIN 491 is 14 weeks of professional experience in a full-time (approximately 35 - 40 hours per week) route-related placement. Students must apply to the Practicum Supervisor. A limited number of placements are available.
NEURO 500 - RESEARCH IN NEUROSCIENCE
Course Description: A practical course in the neurosciences where students spend two months in each of at least three research laboratories approved by the Centre for Neuroscience Graduate Committee. Students are expected to complete a small research project, supervised by a member of the Centre, in each of the research areas chosen. Students are evaluated on both their performance in the laboratory and reports written.
Prerequisite: consent of the Centre for Neuroscience. Credit may be obtained for only one of either NEURO 500 or NEURO 501.
