SPEX 4300 - Skeletal Muscle Physiology

5 credit hours
The purpose of this course is to examine the role of skeletal muscle and its supporting connective tissue in the structure, function, and regulation of human movement. You will learn about how the highly organized anatomical structures of muscle, from the molecular level to the whole muscle level, facilitate the production of movement. You will explore topics in muscle physiology, including fiber development, activation, excitation-contraction coupling, fiber type distribution, plasticity, and motor unit recruitment. You will also learn about acute and chronic adaptations of skeletal muscle to increased and decreased use, such as with fatigue, aging, disuse, injury and recovery, and with muscle-specific diseases.
