401. Applied Anatomy I (3)

Prerequisite: BIOL 208 or equivalent.
Advanced study of structure and function of neuromusculoskeletal systems with emphasis on surface contour, myology and joint structure and neurovascular supply. Regional emphasis includes upper extremity head, neck and thorax. Includes dissection laboratory and provided materials.
Letter grade only (A-F). (Lecture/discussion 2 hours, lab 3 hours) Course fee may be required.

402. Applied Anatomy II (3)

Prerequisites: BIOL 208 or equivalent; "B" or better in HHS 401.
Continuation of HHS 401, with emphasis on normal anatomy of lower extremities, pelvis, and abdominal region.
Letter grade only (A-F). (Lecture/discussion 2 hours, lab 3 hours) Course fee may be required.

403. Tissue Mechanics and Aging (3)

Prerequisites: "B" or better in HHS 401 and BIOL 341 and consent of instructor.
Advanced study of tissue (bone, muscle, dense fibrous connective tissue, cartilage, nerve) mechanics and pathomechanics including use, disuse and aging with application to joint mechanics and therapeutic procedures.
Letter grade only (A-F). (Lecture/discussion 3 hours)

460. Neuroanatomy (4)

Prerequisite: BIOL 341.
Investigation of human neuroanatomy with emphasis on the structure and function of the central nervous system (CNS), cranial nerves, and their connecting neural pathways relative to human function and movement. Neuroanatomical and vascular lesions will be discussed and correlated to common clinical conditions. Emphasis is on applying neuroanatomy for differential diagnosis.

497. Independent Studies (1-3)

Prerequisites: Consent of instructor, and for human dissection, one general introductory anatomy course, HHS 401 and 402.
