HUBS191 Human Body Systems 1

An introduction to the structure and function of the musculoskeletal, nervous, endocrine and immune systems in the human body, and to biostatistics.

We all take for granted that our body functions under so many different conditions whether we are sitting at a desk, playing sport, eating or resting. In HUBS 191 you will have the opportunity to develop conceptual learning skills about the structure (Anatomy) and function (Physiology) of your body and how these systems work under different conditions. Modules include movement and the nervous system (Human Movement and Sensation), hormones (Endocrine system) and response to injury (Immune System). The paper integrates this material to help you understand how and why our bodies are such amazingly efficient machines.
