Learning outcomes The main objective of this course is to develop understanding of the functional morphology and functioning of the organs of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems as an explanatory basis for the motion and human behavior
• Demonstrates understanding of the object of study of the anatomy and exercise physiology and its environment as a scientific discipline in sport science.
• Demonstrates knowledge and ability to understand anatomical and physiological mechanisms related to the movement of the human body, whereas the nervous and musculoskeletal systems.
• Identifies the anatomical aspects of the central and peripheral nervous system, and comprises physiological properties of each.
• Identify the anatomical aspects of the musculoskeletal system, and understands the physiology of its operation.
• Identifies aspects musculoskeletal visible to the body surface.
