Description

Walking and running upright is an essential aspect of being human. In this course, we will attempt to understand both how and why the human body works the way it does, by studying human anatomy and evolution together. We will explore the anatomical basis for activities such as running and walking, grasping and throwing, chewing and digesting, talking and breathing, and sensory perception. The focus will be on the musculoskeletal anatomy of humans and our closest living and fossil relatives. Included in the course will be the reconstruction of the locomotor, dietary and social behavior of extinct relatives, such as Australopithecus and earlier forms of Homo.

Course Requirements:

Students will be graded on their performance on two midterm assessments and one final exam, as well as on five written lab reports.

Intended Audience:

Students interested in human anatomy, medicine, anthropology, athletic performance, evolutionary biology.

Class Format:

The class will make use of the skeletal and fossil cast collections housed in the Anthropology Department. There will be weekly lectures and hands-on laboratories.
