The course will deal with topics of Integrative Physiology applied to movement and sport.
Through an in-depth study of specific aspects of human physiology and a quantitative approach, the course aims to facilitate the understanding of the control mechanisms, of the integrated functioning of organs and systems aimed at maintaining homeostasis. The focus of the course will be in particular the knowledge of acute responses to the exercise and adaptive responses to training.

Syllabus

• Introduction to exercise physiology: concept of homeostasis, interpretation of graphs, concept of threshold and sensitivity / gain, concept of steady state
• Characterization of the ventilatory response, integrated ventilation control, VO2max concept, notes on measurement methods
