The objectives of the course are to provide insights into the tissues that make up the musculo-skeletal system in vertebrates, their functional properties and their function.
The course will review the basics of biomechanical models and the analyses of movement. Practical sessions where participants measure and use force transducers, high-speed cameras and build biomechanical models will be included. The goal of the course is thus to provide participants with a solid background in vertebrate functional morphology and ecomorphology irrespective of the system they are interested in.
Although the course is mostly geared towards students of vertebrate biology, invertebrate examples will be mentioned as well.
Former participants will have a 5 % discount on the Course Fee.
Furthermore, a 20 % discount on the Course Fee is offered for members of some organizations (Organizations with discount). If you want to apply to this discount please indicate it in the Registration form (proof will be asked later).
