KN 319 - Biomechanics & Motor Control (3)

This course provides a scientific foundation for the study of human movement by exploring how the nervous system controls the actions of muscles to produce human motion in relation to biomechanical principles. Emphasis is placed on force-motion relationships, the motor system, and adaptability of the motor system. Laboratory activities involve analyzing movement skills, identifying and correcting errors in movement skills, and developing strategies that optimize motor learning and performance. Prerequisite: BI 220  with a “C” or higher and 2.5 cumulative GPA. SP.
