AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The teaching of Human Anatomy of the Locomotor Apparatus aims to bring students to the knowledge of the anatomical and functional organization of structures that allow the movement of the human body. An understanding of the topics covered in the classroom should allow the student to go deeper into specific topics in complete autonomy.

Teaching methods

The teaching activity is organised in lectures. During these lectures all the issues the student has to know for the final exam will be explained and discussed with the help of visual aids.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Motor Apparatus

General information and classification of bones, skeletal muscles and joints.

 

SKELETON

Notes on the general organization of the skull.

Trunk: spinal column, sacrum, coccyx.

Thorax: chest cage, ribs and sternum.

Upper limb: collarbone, scapula, humerus, radius, ulna, carpus, metacarpus and phalanges.

Lower limb: hip bone, entire pelvis, femur, limpet, tibia, fibula, foot skeleton.

 

JOINTS

Trunk joint: vertebral column joints, atlant-occipital joint, lateral/medium atlo-axial joint, sacrum and coccyx joints.

Chest joints: Costalvertebral, sternocostal, chondral and sternal joints.

Upper limb joint: sternoclavicular joint, acromionclavicular, glenoomeral.

Lower limb joints: pelvis, hip, knee, proximal tibiofibular, foot joints.

 

MUSCLES

Origin, insertion, innervation and action of:

trunk muscles: back muscles, neck muscles, neck bands;

chest muscles and chest bands;

abdominal muscles, fibrous bands and devices of the abdomen, inguinal trajectory;

upper limb muscles: shoulder muscles, arm muscles, forearm muscles, hand muscles, upper limb muscles;
