Applied Physiology provides the opportunity for students to expand their knowledge of physiology and physiology research techniques. The unit will take an in depth look into the applied nature of physiology in extreme environments.
Physiological processes and whole body implications of exposure to different stressors, including ultra endurance exercise and in obesity/ metabolic syndrome or similar topics will be investigated and explored. Students will be able to develop their research skills and will be exposed to the theory and some techniques utilised in a working laboratory.
