An introduction to homeostasis and the structure and function of the musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine and immune systems of the human body, within a physical education context for the immune system.
This paper is jointly taught with HUBS 191. PHSE 191 is available only to students
enrolled in the BPhEd degree and BAppSc (Sports Technology) degrees. This paper covers
the structure and function of the human body, with an emphasis on the role of movement,
physical activity and exercise on the human body.
The content of PHSE 191 includes an introduction and three main sections of study: human movement and sensation, the endocrine system and the immune system. This is integrated under the umbrella of homeostatic principles. The final four lectures will integrate the earlier lecture material into a physical education (exercise physiology) context.
