Course Introduction

Description

The Centre for Human & Applied Physiological Sciences (CHAPS) is focused on research and postgraduate teaching in human and aerospace physiology in its broadest sense. We have close links with numerous related external bodies including the Royal Air Force Centre of Aviation Medicine and Crew Medical Support Office (European Space Agency). Our taught master?s programmes in Human & Applied Physiology, Space Physiology & Health, and Aerospace Medicine, complement our varied postgraduate research opportunities.

Our wide range of research expertise spans basic science and clinically-related fields including: human ageing, skeletal muscle function, plasticity and growth. Our work in multi-systems neuroscience explores our interactions with the environment, investigating issues such as how our movement and balance control our sensory and cardiorespiratory physiology. Our research also investigates how such systems adapt to low levels of oxygen or the absence of gravity.

Course study environment

The Centre has a number of different research laboratories reflecting the wide range of research undertaken. These include: Psychomotor/Pain Laboratory; Gait Analysis and Sensory-Motor Control Laboratory; Muscle function Laboratory; Muscle and Exercise Physiology Laboratory; Ernsting Aerospace Physiology Laboratory; Interventional Neurophysiology Laboratory; Controlled Environment Laboratory; Conditioning and Rehabilitation Laboratory; Cellular and Molecular Muscle biology Laboratory.
