This educational program focuses on the scientific study of the physiological processes involved in low and high-altitude flight and living in space and related low-pressure and low-gravity environments, including response mechanisms, sensorimotor interactions, and the effects of disease, injury, and disability. This program typically includes in depth instruction in anatomy, fuel utilization, molecular and cellular basis of muscle contraction, systemic physiological responses (respiration, endocrine secretions, blood flow, and others), neurophysiology of motor mechanics, fatigue and exhaustion, muscle and body training, physiology of specific exercises and activities, systemic environmental pathologies, physiology of injury, and the effects of disabilities and disease.
