· This course deals with the composition, classification and function of human skeletal system in a very easily understandable manner.

  • The human skeletal system is the body system that provides the internal framework for the human body. In adults, the skeletal system contains 206 bones.

  • It is the combination of all the bones and tissues associated with cartilages and joints. Almost all the rigid or solid parts of the body are the main components of the skeletal system.

  • Bones are organs made up of dense connective tissues, mainly the hard collagen protein. Bones also contain blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. Bones are hard and rigid due to the deposits of calcium and other mineral salts in their living tissues. In addition to bones, the skeletal system includes cartilage and ligaments

  • The skeleton is traditionally divided into two main parts: the axial skeleton, which includes the skull, the vertebral column and the rib cage; and the appendicular skeleton, which includes the appendages and belts that attach them to the axial skeleton.

  • The skeletal system has many different functions, including supporting the body and shaping it, protecting internal organs, providing attachment surfaces for skeletal muscles, enabling body movement, producing blood cells, storing minerals, helping to maintain mineral homeostasis and produce endocrine hormones.

  • This free online human anatomy course will be of great interest to all healthcare professionals who would like to learn more about the human skeletal system and its biological functions, as it gives a very nice audio-visual information to the audience.

Sleep is a mysterious state of mind and body that we spend an awful lot of time in - a third of our lives. Just imagine, for an average person who has lived 75 years, he will have spent 25 years of his life in sleep. Sleep is hard to define, but it’s easy to feel the importance of it - just skip a night and your body will show you how big of a mistake you have made. Yet, despite its vital importance few of us really know enough about what sleep really is, how it works, how it affects our physical and emotional state and most importantly how we can make our sleep more efficient and make the best use of it.

In this course we are going to learn the fundamental facts about sleep which is by the way and interestingly enough not something homogeneous, it consists of multiple and different phases, each of them being essential for our physical and emotional wellbeing. We will learn how our simple decisions during the day affect our sleep performance at night, and how in turn the quality of our sleep affects our daily life. And of course we are going to learn how to improve our sleep habits so that we can fully utilize its potential and enormous benefits for our mental and physical health.

Join me in exploring this mysterious yet so important gift that every single one of us has and let’s dive into it.

Hello everyone my names Alfie, I am a sport nutritionist – I completed an undergraduate degree in sport and exercise science at Loughborough University, additionally I completed a masters degree in sport nutrition at Liverpool John Moores university. I have a various of work experience at a variety of institutions and settings – with key bits of experience working as a physiologist at the Ministry of Defence with the British Army, and as an intern at Science in Sport supplement company assisting with performance nutrition solutions.

This introductory course will aim to map out esports athletes and gamers as a population, some of the performance and health problems they may face. In addition, we will also try to understand the physiological demands of being an esports athlete – this physiology-first approach will allow us to provide better health and nutrition interventions.

Worryingly – Esports athletes exhibit greater body fat percentage, less lean body mass and less bone mineral content compared to age-matched controls. - This information presents nutritionists with lots of areas where they can help esports athletes, gamers and streamers  to improve their overall health and esports performance.

In this 5 part series I walk you through:

  1. The physiological characteristics of esports athletes and the physiological demands of being an esports athlete.

  2. The benefits of physical activity and exercise to esports performance and health.

  3. Fundamental nutrition principles, how diet and supplements can improve esports performance and health.

  4. Sleep and its importance for health, mental health and cognition.

  5. Hydration and dehydration's implications on cognition and subsequent esports performance.

It's a great starting point to question your own nutrition practices - I can't wait for you to watch it!
