UG Coursework Unit
Level of learning
Provides students with the knowledge basis for the understanding of neural processes involved in the control of movement and of issues involved in cerebral organisation of goal directed movement. It also provides background to neurological and movement disorders.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:||GA1||GA2||GA3||GA4||GA5||GA6||GA7|
|1||identify neural pathways involved in control of movement|
|2||understand the role of brain areas in movement activity|
|3||evaluate the evidence for the current models and hypotheses related to movement|
|4||understand, conduct and interpret basic neuromotor and reaction time tests applicable to exercise science practice|
|5||understand, conduct and interpret assessments of posture and balance|
|6||have a knowledge of common neurological and movement disorders.|
