Annotation -
Students get acquainted with functions of all organ systems of human body in the rest conditions and during exercise. Special attention is given to regulatory processes, functional examinations and functions of neuromuscular system with regard to movement control. The course is focused on the acquisition of theoretical knowledge in the field of anatomy and their application to the functioning of individual organ systems of the human body.

Aim of the course -

The aim of the subject is to get acquainted with the basics of neuromuscular and exercise physiology.


- basic concepts of cellular and subcellular structures and their meaning

- physiology of excitatory systems: nerve cell, processing and conduction of information in the nerve and between nerves, NS metabolism, muscular system (striated, cardiac and smooth muscle – structure and function).


- From the field of neurophysiology, describe the structure and function of the neuron, types of conduction, synaptic transmissions and types of mediators according to their activity. Describe the parts of the nervous system most connected by motor activity, control of body position and their parts (cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, cerebellum and pyramidal and extrapyramidal pathways) and the influence of the vegetative nervous system. Considering the focus on the locomotor system, he can describe not only the types of muscles, but also the molecular basis of contraction, the energy sources of contraction and relaxation, the issue of neuromuscular transmission and proprioception as the regulation of muscle tension and stretching.

- Can describe bone structure, necessary substances and vitamins for bone building.

- Can describe sensitive-sensory organs, pain, sleep and its individual phases

Competence (the student is competent)

- use acquired knowledge of physiology for their application and connection with subsequent subjects such as pathological physiology, exercise physiology, biomechanics or nutrition

- search, sort and assess information related to physiological processes,

- use the acquired information in everyday practice
