HHP 201 Motor Control and Learning

This course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive introduction to motor control, development and learning. Considerations for study will include rudimentary neurophysiology (from cells to systems), movement theories, as well as fundamental components of motor control and skill including learning, memory, attention, feedback and practice. Adaptation of human motion to various stimuli and motion analysis will be explored. A strong emphasis will be placed on students understanding the experimental findings and the theoretical frameworks that support the application of movement science within a variety of professional settings.

HHP 317 Neuromechanics

This contemporary course draws on the disciplines of neurophysiology and physics to examine typical and atypical movement forms. A special emphasis is placed on exploring how the sensorimotor system plays an active role in this process, particularly its interaction with the physical laws that constrain human movement. References to normal, everyday actions, as well as sport and rehabilitative movement are pervasive. (1) 1 Unit
