Neuromotor Control of Human Movement

HNRS 3035 Sec. 01 - Fall 2019

Associate Professor Jan Hondzinski School of Kinesiology

Tu Th 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM
155 Huey P. Long Fieldhouse

The course goals are for students to learn about, to acquire a better understanding of and to gain an appreciation for the neural aspects of human movement. It is a basic neuroanatomy course designed to provide students with a basic understanding of neuroanatomy and voluntary/involuntary motor control and include review of muscle dynamics, sensory and motor neural pathways, subcortical reflexes, supraspinal mechanisms, and behavioral issues.

The course will give upper level honors students interested in medicine, therapy, nursing, and/or allied health programs advanced knowledge about the nervous system to provide them an advantage when entering professional health-related graduate programs.

The course will substitute for KIN 4571, which is required for Kinesiology Human Movement Science majors and is an elective for the Robotics Minor. Anatomy is a pre-requisite; students outside Kinesiology will be provided an anatomy review packet.
