Human Anatomy III (CHI234)
|Organisational Unit||Psychology, Counselling, Exercise Science and Chiropractic|
|Teaching Timetables||Murdoch S2
|Description||This unit has a regional clinically-oriented approach to human gross anatomy. The regions covered in this unit are the trunk and limbs and the central nervous system. Emphasis is placed on the musculoskeletal system, somatic innervation and the anatomical basis of common pathologies. Practical classes consist of prosection labs (the viewing of human cadavers), living and radiographic anatomy. The unit is based on a medical undergraduate anatomy curriculum.|
|Unit Learning Outcomes||On successful completion of the unit you should be able to:
1. Understand the anatomical basis of effects of lesions of the nervous system.
2. Understand the role of basal nuclei in motor control and disease.
3. Recall the origin, insertion, action and innervation of the muscles of the human body.
4. Test the integrity of dermatomes and myotomes of the human body.
5. Understand the structure, innervation, blood supply, and movement of the vertebral column.
6. Apply normal and developmental anatomical knowledge in relation to diagnostic imaging of the neuro-musculoskeletal structures of the limbs, spine, and central nervous system.
|Timetabled Learning Activities||Lecture (Radiology): 1 x 1 hr per week; Lecture (Anatomy): 1 x 2 hrs per week; Practical (Radiology): 1 x 1 hr per week; Cadaveric Anatomy Laboratory: 1 x 1 hr per week; Living Anatomy Practical: 1 x 1.5 hr per week.|
|Unit Learning Experiences||The lectures are intended to support and accompany material covered in the essential textbooks for this unit. They do not substitute for wider reading but provide an opportunity to highlight specific details and for class discussion.
Attendance at practical classes is mandatory. Examining models and cadavers in the laboratory is vitally important in grasping the three-dimensional structure of the human body and the inter-relationship between organs and systems. Photographs of models and cadavers in the laboratory will be used in assessments.
Surface anatomy classes are mandatory and give students the confidence and skills to palpate living bodies. Students will practice palpating and testing the integrity of muscular, ligamentous and osseous structures while accurately verbalising the processes you are demonstrating.

|Internet Access Requirements||Murdoch units normally include an online component comprising materials, discussions, lecture recordings and assessment activities. All students, regardless of their location or mode of study, need to have access to and be able to use computing devices with browsing capability and a connection to the Internet via Broadband (Cable, ADSL or Mobile) or Wireless. The Internet connection should be readily available and allow large amounts of data to be streamed or downloaded (approximately 100MB per lecture recording). Students also need to be able to enter into online discussions and submit assignments online.|
