Course description and aims

This course focuses on anatomical structure of a human body, modeling of human body shape, measuring methods of human body motion, anatomy of neural system, etc.
Living organisms themselves are very complicated systems. It is indispensable to consider living organisms as systems in order to develop practical systems related to living organisms including human beings. This course provides basic knowledge about methodology to model living organisms as systems.

Student learning outcomes

By completing this course, students will be able to
1) Understand and explain the basics about methodology to model living organisms as systems.
2) Consider living organisms as systems using appropriate modeling methods.

Keywords
