This course provides students with a greater understanding of the skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems and the relevant anatomical and physiological interactions among these organ systems, especially how they support the health and function of the skeleton, skeletal muscle, and articulations. Students investigate the major muscles of the upper and lower body, including muscles associated with the face, head, neck, trunk, limb girdles, upper limbs, and lower limbs. Students learn the origin, insertion, actions, and innervation of these muscles as well as the structure and movements of the articulations upon which these muscles act. Prerequisite: SCI 1424 Intro Anatomy & Physiology, or SCI 2128 Human Biology, or SCI 2120 Human Performance—A&P I, or SCI 2124 Human Anatomy & Physiology I.
