Move it! From communication between the brain and spinal cord, to oxygen delivery from the heart and lungs, to the muscular forces that propel your body into motion, the function of human movement is fascinatingly complex. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and engage in hands-on learning with real patients as you investigate how movement is impacted by disease, age, injury and other factors.
