Descrizione

Learn about human muscles and their movement. This course describes why humans see, touch, smell, taste and hear the world around us like we do. Practical examples show how our body is able to move and how to improve flexibility, performance and posture. Get a better understanding of the operation of muscles and nerves, in movements and reactions observed in the body.
