EXSC340 Advanced Exercise Physiology
Prerequisites EXSC240 Exercise Physiology
Teaching Organisation 150 hours of focused learning.
This unit extends the basic knowledge gained in the prior units of exercise physiology and exercise metabolism. In this unit, human physiological systems will be further explored in the context of exercise and related stress, with specific focus on the physiological and biochemical responses of human performance in different environments and stimuli. In developing an understanding of complex physiological control mechanisms during exercise, students will be directed towards current research and contemporary techniques in the field. Research methodology and ethical practice will be embedded in the unit, with students completing an independent research project.
