Exercise, Energy and Movement
Produced by the Wellcome Trust, this issue of the Big Picture looks at the physiology and sociology of exercise and movement.
For humans, movement is for more than just basic survival. They move for fun, to compete and to be healthy. This resource looks at the biological systems that keep humans moving and consider some of the psychological, social and ethical aspects of exercise and sport.
The resource includes:
• Articles and information on movement and exercise
• Video clips on exercise physiology and biomechanics
• Images of bones, skeleton, muscle, tendons, lungs and heart
• Animation of the sliding filament model of muscle contraction
